ISEE Overview

The independent school entrance exam is administered to grades 2-12 to test their academic proficiency in a variety of subjects. The ISEE is broken into primary level, lower level, mid level, and high level based on grade level and in this course we will highlight the content in the middle level exam. Scoring is based on how many questions are answered correctly and students are not penalized for wrong answers. It's important to always answer the question- even if you are guessing.
