How is the decision made to accept a student?
A number of factors are considered in making the decision to offer admission to an applicant.
These factors include:
Report Card Grades
Standardized Test Scores
Performance on the Assessment
Letter(s) of reference Student
Each of these items has a point value that is entered onto a spreadsheet resulting in a total score. The 62 students with the highest total scores seeking placement in the 9th grade are offered admission.
These factors, as well as the GPA and prerequisite coursework, are considered for students applying to the 10th or 11th grade.
