The Evergreen School’s mission is to serve highly capable students. As a part of the admission process, we require students applying to grades K-8 to submit the results of an IQ assessment. Our goal for students is that they will be successful in our program, and we find that students who score at the 95% and above are a good match for Evergreen. (Please note: Preschool and prekindergarten applicants do not need to take an IQ test.)
We understand that one test does not offer a comprehensive picture of any child, but the evaluation can provide a snapshot of a child's cognitive abilities at a particular time, as well as offer insight into their approach to solving different types of problems. IQ tests do not measure achievement.
Evergreen accepts the following IQ tests:
WPPSI - IV
*Note: The KABC II may or may not be accepted by other independent schools that require IQ testing as part of the admission process.
If you have questions about the testing requirement, please email Director of Admission Susan Smith
The school does not administer IQ tests, but we provide a list of licensed psychologists who do. (Click the orange button to the right.).
Submission Deadline: IQ testing for all applicants (grades K-8) must be completed by January 14, 2021.
For applicants to grades 5-8, additional test results must be submitted by January 31, 2021. (Please see below.)
