Not Your Ordinary School (NYOS) has been an active charter school since 1998. As a tuition free, public charter school, we currently serve more than 1,700 Austin area students in PreK-3 to 12th Grade. To learn more about NYOS Charter School, go here.

NYOS uses a lottery based enrollment system. Every student has an equal opportunity to enroll at NYOS by filling out an application. In the spring of every year, NYOS compiles their waiting list for the next school year. Applications are randomly selected for each opening at each grade level and are numbered in the order they are drawn. 
Our student application requires an Austin area home address located in one of the following school districts in order for the application to be eligible for our annual lottery: Austin ISD, Bastrop ISD, Coupland ISD, Del Valle ISD, Eanes ISD, Elgin ISD, Hays CISD, Hutto ISD, Georgetown ISD, Jarrell ISD, Lago Vista ISD, Lake Travis ISD, Leander ISD, Manor ISD, Pflugerville ISD, Round Rock ISD, Smithville ISD, and Taylor ISD.
