I`m actually the grandparent of a 2nd grader Aldar Academy. Before my grandchild began attending Aldar, school was a major source of stress. My grandchild attended 4 different schools, both public and private, for kindergarten alone. It was the same old routine at each of those schools; calls from the principal, asking us to come pick the child up after there`d been some sort of incident, then suspensions, and eventually being sent to yet another school. My grandchild was frustrated and stressed, and so were we.That`s all behind us now. Aldar has been a true blessing for our family, especially for my grandchild, who now likes going to school, and is thriving, both academically and socially, in the learning environment Aldar Academy offers.

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
