The admissions assessment involves the student, family and other students who have applied to Eastgate Academy. Each student will complete an individual task involving some reading, writing, mathematics and critical thinking. Students will also work together in a collaborative problem-solving activity. These tasks are not about assessing whether each child is good enough or smart enough. Rather, the assessment is designed to give families a taste of what learning is like at Eastgate Academy, and to help us to understand whether this is the right fit. Both the parents and the student will have an interview during which they can tell us about their goals, interests and what they hope to achieve at Eastgate Academy. Of course this is also a time to ask questions or discuss any concerns.
The next admissions assessment event will be held at the school on Friday, May 6 from 9:00-11:00.
