Portola Middle School is a college preparatory middle school serving grades 6 through 8. We are a neighborhood public school. To determine whether or not Portola is your home school, click here to use the LAUSD Resident School Identifier. Simply enter your home address in the search box, and the system will provide you with your home school.

If you do not live in Portola's attendance area, you may apply through Open Enrollment, Child Care Permit, or Work Permit. 

Open Enrollment
There are a limited number of Open Enrollment slots available each school year. Open Enrollment selection is done through a lottery system. Click here to learn more about Open Enrollment and to download the Open Enrollment Application for the 2014-2015 school year.

All Open Enrollment spaces have been filled for the 2014-2015 school year. We currently have a waiting list. You may still submit an Open Enrollment application; however, new applicants will be placed at the end of the waiting list in the order that the applications are received.

Child Care Permit
When a student lives in another school's or district’s attendance area, but is cared for before and/or after school by an adult within Portola's attendance area, then a permit to attend that school may be issued. Child Care permits are only issued when both parents are employed full-time or are in school on a full-time basis.

Work Permit
Parent Employment Permits may be issued if at least one parent/guardian is physically employed in the attendance boundary of Portola Middle School

Please Note: Child Care and Work Permits are issued at the discretion of the school based upon available space and must be renewed annually. Click here to download the Child Care/Work Permit Application.
