Register for the SSAT or ISEE test in the fall. One of these tests should taken no later than mid-January to ensure the admissions team receives your scores before the application deadline.

LWGMS is hosting ISEE tests on [2017 date TBD] and [2017 date TBD] at [time TBD]. Visit to register for one of these tests, or to schedule a test at a different date/location. To see all of the Seattle ISEE testing locations, click here.

OCTOBER [2017 date TBD] – MARCH [2018 date TBD]

Monday Visit and Family Information Session:
During the Monday Visit, applying students will shadow current students through their morning classes, will participate in a group activity, and will spend some time with the Admission Team. We require all applying parents/guardians to attend an information session during this Monday Visit — either at drop-off in the morning or at pick-up at lunchtime. Information sessions will include a tour of the school and a peek into classrooms in action, a comprehensive Q&A with members of the Admission Team, and time to ask a few questions one-on-one!
