What Is the ISEE?

The Independent School Entrance Exam is similar to the SSAT – it’s used by private schools in the admissions process. The test has three levels for students in different grades:
Lower Level
This test is for students in grade 5 or below.
Middle Level
This test is for students in grades 6 and 7
Upper Level
This test is for students in grade 8 or above
These tests cover a wide array of reading comprehension, math, and english content. Although the essay section is unscored, it will be sent to the schools you apply to as a writing sample.

FAQ's

If you have more questions about our ISEE tutoring programs, these FAQs will provide the clarity you need.

Do you only focus on ISEE content tutoring?

While we help students learn and retain knowledge to navigate ISEE content with ease, our assistance doesn’t stop there. We also teach valuable test-taking strategies, such as time management, the process of elimination, and more, to ensure students can confidently walk into test day.


How can parents be involved in the ISEE tutoring program?

We welcome parent involvement and always strive to keep students, families, and tutors in the loop with our detailed progress tracker. The tracker allows families to check student progress, tutor comments, and next steps at any time.

How are students matched to an ISEE tutor?

Our matching process ensures students are paired with their best-fit ISEE tutor based on student/family preferences, goals, and needs. We glean much of this information from our initial call and the intake form you provide us with. 

Where do I register for the ISEE?

Students can be registered for the ISEE using the ERB website.

What is considered a good ISEE score?

Using stanines, scoring a 1-3 is typically considered “below average,” 4-6 is “average,” and 7-8 are “above average.” However, remember that your stanine scores are relative and based on the scores of all other test-takers! Since there are many students applying to all types of private schools, it can be difficult to pinpoint what makes an ISEE score “good” – it depends on your aspirations, school choices, and profile strength.


Which organization administers the ISEE, and where can I learn more?

The ISEE is run by the Education Record Bureau (ERB). You can learn more about the ISEE here.


How should I interpret my ISEE scores?

You can equate stanines to percentile rankings in the following ways:
