What Is ISEE?

ISEE is the Independent School Entrance Examination and it's used for admission to private middle schools and high schools. If you're looking to attend an elite private middle or high school, this is a test you'll need to do well on. Three different levels of the test are offered depending on where you are in your education. The Upper Level is designed for applicants in grades 9 and above. The Middle Level is for applicants in grades 6 and 7, and the Lower Level is for applicants in grades 5 and 6.

We prepare our students for these tests on the basis of the determinaitons made by the National Council of  Teachers of Mathematics (
www.nctm.org). NCTM has identified 5 main areas for all high school students to master. We have identified several subgroups within each of the 5 areas and have developed specific exercises for students to perform.

Upper Level Math Assessment
