The Evergreen School’s mission is to serve highly capable students. As a part of the admission process, we require students applying for grades K-8 to submit the results of an IQ evaluation. (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 a child's approach to solving different types of problems. IQ tests do not measure achievement.
From experience, we have found that students who score 130 on either the Wechsler full scale IQ or the GAI tend to do well at Evergreen. However, we may consider scores that fall close to that number for students who demonstrate other characteristics of highly capable children. The school does not administer IQ tests, but we provide a list of licensed psychologists who do. (Click the orange button to the right.)
If you have any questions about our testing requirement, please contact Director of Admission Susan Smith

For applicants to grades 5-8, ISEE or SSAT results must be submitted by January 31, 2020. (Please see below.)
