What Parents Are Saying
"I just wanted you to know that Allison placed very well for math next year at Pingry. She essentially placed into Algebra 2/Trig. I attached the different course offering and math tracks and circled the course she was placed. We are so pleased, but a bit nervous - hopefully it is not too fast for her.'
About the ISEE Examination
The Independent School Entrance Examination, or ISEE, is an entrance exam used by many independent schools and magnet schools. Designed and administered by the Educational Records Bureau, the ISEE has three levels: the Lower level, for entrance in grades 5-6; Middle level, for entrance in grades 7-8; Upper level, for entrance in grades 9-12. All levels consist of five sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, reading comprehension, and Mathematics Achievement, and a 30-minute essay section. The test is approximately two hours and forty minutes long in total, plus time for two breaks.
About the SSAT Examination
The Secondary School Admission Test, or SSAT, is an admissions test administered to students in grades 3-11 to help determine placement into independent or private junior high and high schools. Despite its similarities, the SSAT is not related to the SAT Reasoning test and is not administered by the College Board.
There are three levels of the test: the elementary level for grades 3-4, middle level for students in grades 5-7 and the upper level, designed for students in grades 8-11. The SSAT consists of two parts: a brief essay and a multiple choice test that includes Mathematics, Reading Comprehension and Verbal sections. In all, there are five sections.
