PDF APPLICATION

Testing:

All entering students must receive an educational evaluation. A developmental test will be administered to students entering the Pre-Kindergarten class. An achievement test will be administered to all students entering Kindergarten through 8th grades that measures levels of achievement in reading, language, and mathematics. Screening tests are used to verify that the child possesses above average cognitive social skills to cope with an advanced curriculum. Entrance exams are administered starting each March. The school will notify each family to arrange testing and to confirm test dates.

Notification:

Parents/guardians will be notified concerning the outcome of the testing process once the above procedures have been completed. Notification of the test results will occur as soon as possible after testing is completed.
