Middle School Admissions Preparation

Evolved Education Middle School Admissions Preparation

By: Mary Miele, Founder of Evolved Education & Meredith Godsall, Admissions Preparation Teacher at Evolved Education

Who is this preparation for? NYC Students applying to middle school

What do they learn? Students learn the skills needed to showcase one’s personality, academic skills and individuality during an admissions interview and skills assessment

Interview skills

 Students learn how to

  • how to listen and respond to questions (including how to interject in a conversation, how to politely respond, agree or disagree, how to work as a group toward a common goal)
  • overall communication (body language, eye contact, facial expressions, annuciation and volume, poise, etc
  • learn about how to read your audience

On-demand, on-site math and reading/writing prompts

Often at school interviews, students must complete a math and/or reading/writing assessment on site. In Evolved preparation,  students learn how to

  • think and create solutions on the spot
  • best showcase their knowledge
  • conquer the “what ifs”

Why Is this Preparation Beneficial? 

Evolved Education has been working intricately within the middle school admissions and academic support process for years and we have found there to be tremendous benefits in appropriately preparing children for the middle school application process.

Most 5th graders have not had interview and “on the spot” academic assessment experience.  Evolved Education finds that the preparation increases students chances of getting admission to their top choice school.
