WMPCS is a public school open to all children with no fees or tuition. To enroll a student, an application must be received by the school. An application does not guarantee enrollment. Due to the high number of applicants each year, the school holds a lottery to determine which students are offered slots into the school. The annual lottery is held at an open session Board of Trustees meeting in January before the upcoming school year. Applicants' names are pulled at random to fill any available openings. Siblings of currently enrolled students that have been at WMPCS the prior year are given priority in order to ensure that brothers and sisters can attend together.

Children who are not selected for a position at lottery are placed on the waiting list. Although there is no guarantee of entry into the school after all lottery slots have been filled, we strongly encourage all who are interested in attending the school complete an application. Completion of an application ensures the child's placement on the waiting list. Administration places children in the school from the waiting list throughout the summer up to and including the 20th day of the school year. Openings may become available throughout the school year, but are not guaranteed.
