Middle School Application Forms
Dwight School requires that applicants to Grades 6 -12 take either the ISEE or the SSAT test. Students are evaluated on their quantitative, math, reading, and verbal skills. To schedule a test date, visit the ERB website or the SSAT website as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that test scores are just one of the factors that go into Dwight's decision-making process.
We strongly recommend that testing be completed between the months of October and December. Testing must be completed by January 10, 2019.
Please ensure that Dwight School is listed as a recipient. Our school code for the ISEE is 333605. For the SSAT, our code is 2930. If you have any questions about receiving a fee waiver to help with testing costs, please contact us at (212) 724-6360
