The admission assessment is important because scores are based on independent school norms and are a predictor of success in an independent school. However, the assessment is only one piece of the admission review. Equally important are teacher recommendations, report cards, the admission interview, and involvement in school activities. The Admission Committee thoroughly reviews all information in a candidate’s file before making an admission decision.
Teacher recommendations speak to a candidate’s progress in the classroom. This information is very important when determining whether a candidate is ready for the classroom environment and academic expectations at Benjamin.
