Applicant Criteria

The admissions process at Feynman School focuses on matching the ability and maturity of each prospective student with the learning environment.

Applicants are considered according to formal and informal measures based on multiple criteria. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Indications of high intellectual ability; WPPSI-III, WPPSI-IV or WISC-V required for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 5 and SSAT for Grade 6 – 8 applicants
  • Advanced achievement in academic skills
  • Higher-level thinking skills
  • Appropriate maturity
  • Positive social skills
  • Creativity
  • Individual talents and interests

Age Requirement

Preschool applicants must be 3 years old by September 1 of the year they intend to enroll. Three-year-old applicants must be toilet trained upon the first day of school. In unusual cases, however, a child turning three after September 1 may be considered for rolling admission during the school year, provided space is available and the child demonstrates readiness.
