School for Advanced Studies Transfer


Schools For Advanced Studies ("SAS") offer high-level academic programs that meet the unique educational needs of gifted and high ability learners by providing differentiated instruction with an emphasis on depth, complexity, acceleration and novelty within the standard curriculum. Every classroom receives SAS level teaching, as ALL Lanai Road teachers and the principal are trained in teaching gifted learners.

Qualified students entering Grades K-5 may apply for a School for Advanced Studies transfer. Acceptance is based on:

  1. Student meeting eligibility criteria AND
  2. Availability of space at Lanai Road Elementary.


ALL applicants for the School for Advanced Studies must demonstrate the ability or strong potential to work two years above grade level in academic subjects. Applicants may wish to refer to the National PTA parent guides for student success to understand the Common Core guidelines for different grade levels. For example, Kindergarten applicants should be working at or showing potential to work at a second grade level when attending the school. Students currently in preschool should refer to the parent guide for first grade (two grade levels above) to verify current performance level.

Applicants must meet one of three eligibility criteria:

  1. Students identified as gifted/talented in LAUSD in the Intellectual, High Achievement, Specific Academic, Creative, or Leadership Ability Categories
  2. Students who scored in the “Standards Exceeded” range on the SBAC assessment or have TOTAL national scores of 85% or above on a District-approved standardized achievement test (e.g., OLSAT-8) in required areas (most recent year only).
  3. Students who demonstrate mastery of ALL FOUR of the critical-thinking and problem-solving skills in their primary language. Students applying under this criteria must also:
    • Submit a portfolio of work that supports the verification. Please refer to the SAS Permit Application for examples of student portfolio work. Supporting work in the portfolio should include evidence of advanced math work, writing samples, and/or reading level.
    • Take a standardized LAUSD assessment to confirm level of performance. The assessment date is TBD.

Lanai Road Elementary is NOT an Open Enrollment school for the 2017-2018 school year. Lanai Road Elementary does NOT have a lottery because it is not a charter school.
