I''m an exchange student and I attempted this school in my junior year and I LOVED IT! It's a big school in a small, safe, cozy neighborhood. The school gives you big variety of subjects and a lot of different athletics. Whenever I had any troubles the headmaster and teachers were always available to help me. Nice and small classes which makes easy to ask teachers questions, and easy for teachers to talk with every student. I''d very recommend this school to anyone!

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?
