Lincoln Options Elementary: Practicing a child-centered approach to alternative education, based on learning, kindness, and celebration since 1984.

Lincoln Options Elementary is a public school program within the Olympia School District. Families living in the Lincoln service area and siblings of current students (who are entering at Kindergarten) are guaranteed enrollment. Olympia School District students who live outside of the service area and wish to attend Lincoln are invited to participate in our lottery process. Lottery spots are offered via a random drawing, which takes place in late spring, with some additional spots offered in late August if openings occur prior to the start of the new school year.

Students who are not selected in the lottery must re-enter the lottery each subsequent year, as the lottery list does not roll over to following years. Additional details on the lottery process are outlined during our required Information Nights (typically held in March). Prospective families are also encouraged to join us for Observation Week, where we open our classrooms to allow parents and guardians the opportunity to see our program in action. The most up to date information on enrollment can be found at lincolnoptions.org/enrollment or by calling 360-596-6400.

  • Critical thinking, problem solving, and project-based learning.
