Fall of 5th Grade

Plan to visit LWGMS at one of our Open Houses, and/or schedule a required Monday Visit and Parent Information Session.

September/October/November/December

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 November 5, 2016 and December 10, 2016 at 9a. Visit erblearn.org 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, 2016 – MARCH, 2017

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!
