The Independent Schools Entrance Exam (ISEE) is one of a number of tests which the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) administers as part of the application process to independent schools. 

The Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) is an admission test that has three levels: A Lower Level, Middle Level, and Upper Level. The Lower Level is for students currently in grades 4 and 5 who are candidates for admission to grades 5 and 6. The Middle Level is for students in grades 5 and 6 who are candidates for grades 7 and 8. The Upper Level is for students in grades 8 through 11 who are candidates for grades 9 through 12. The ISEE has different forms at each level for security purposes.
 
At all levels, the ISEE consists of three parts:
(a) carefully constructed and standardized verbal and quantitative reasoning tests that measure a student's capability for learning;
(b) reading comprehension and mathematics achievement tests that provide specific information about a student's strengths and weakness in those areas; and
(c) an essay section. The ISEE essay is timed and written in response to a prompt. The essay is not scored; it is photocopied and sent only to the schools you requested.


Email with some information about your child (an indication of reading and math levels - e.g. at grade level, above grade level or advanced) and we'll get back to you with some suggestions.
