At LEAD Education, we provide ISEE and SSAT testing, as well as parent consultation and planning pertaining to the exams.
Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE)
The ISEE is the Independent School Entrance Examination, which is used for the admission of private middle schools and high schools. This test is important for those interested in attending an elite private middle or high school and students will need to do well on it. There are different levels of the ISEE and are given based on where you are in your education.
The ISEE involves the same sections for everyone; however, they are curated differently based on the level of the test. The test involves the following sections, which are verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension, and mathematics achievement. The ISEE also involves an unscored essay, which is sent to the schools that you’re applying to.
Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT)
The SSAT, which is the Secondary School Admission Test, is a standardized test needed to assess the abilities of students who are interested in enrolling in an independent school. The SSAT involves basic verbal, math, and reading skills and are administered on three levels. The SSAT also involves an unscored writing sample. The levels are based on different grades, which are elementary level, middle level, and upper level. The SSAT is used to assess prospective students.
