What will Stratford Hall Assess?
As you have learned through your visits at Stratford Hall, we are looking for a dynamic group of learners:
Students that are able to engage in the IB curriculum, develop relationships, engage in civic responsibilities, and be global citizens. Due to this we do we do not use standardized testing for admission, rather we assess students on their academic abilities as well as their social skills.
FOR KINDERGARTEN AND GRADE 1
Current Stratford Hall teachers observe the children interacting in small groups, while giving them typical grade-appropriate activities to do. We look to build a class with a range of personalities and skill levels. The Kindergarten and Grade 1 assessments take place in mid-January each year.
GRADE 2 and ABOVE
These assessments involve tasks that are similar to those which our current students are working on and are related to our present curriculum. Part of the application process involves one-on-one conversations between the teacher and applicant. Assessments for applicants in Grade 2 and above take place in mid-January each year.
WHAT IS OUR DECISION BASED ON?
- Application form
- Parent interview
- Stratford Hall teacher observations based upon activities, group work, social interactions, and written and oral work during the assessment.
- Report card and reference documents
- Student interview (Grade 2 and up)
