ISEE Testing

Due to the unique nature of the admissions season this year the ISEE will be an optional step in the application process. Please visit the Educational Records Bureau for applicants to Grade 6 and 7 should you decide to take the ISEE. To schedule a test date, go to the bureau’s online registration portal or call 212-672-9800. Reports are not ready until 6 to 8 weeks after the test date, so it is a good idea to schedule the appointment for early fall.
