Non-Resident Permit Information

Permits are offered to students who would like to attend Mar Vista, but do not reside within our school boundaries.  Acceptance on a permit is based on     (1) space availability and (2) meeting eligibility criteria.  Falsification of information will result in the applicant’s immediate removal from the school site. 



The SAS permit is intended for K-5th grade students who are identified gifted by LAUSD or demonstrate the ability to work above grade level, think critically, and problem solve.  Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria set by the District.
