High School Lottery Information
The Avon-by-the-Sea School District is part of a dual send-receive (Sending District) relationship with both Manasquan High School and Asbury Park High School. Each year, a high school assignment lottery is conducted for all resident students to determine their high school assignment.
Board of Education Policy 5410: High School Assignment stipulates that 37.5% of Eighth Grade resident students be assigned to Asbury Park High School and 62.5% of the Eighth Grade resident students be assigned to Manasquan High School through the lottery.
The High School Assignment Policy will be equally applied to all identified Eighth Grade residents regardless of the school they currently attended (public or private).
The lottery associated with the process of assigning students to High School is held each year in early January and the date and time are posted via a school website homepage announcement. All residents who have a child in the Eighth Grade are invited to attend the lottery, however, Avon School recommends that students DO NOT attend the lottery. Parents/guardians not able to attend the lottery will be sent a notice indicating the results of the lottery and detailed information about High School selection.
If you have any questions or would like further information about the lottery process, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
