2015-2016: 8th Grade Parent Feedback - Complete List
"First of all, you might like to know that my son got 300 points on his Selective Enrollment test."
"My daughter was accepted to her 1st choice Selective Enrollment School. Thanks to your support and encouragement, she will attend Jones College Prep in the fall."
"We’ll actually miss you guys. You have been the one bright spot in an otherwise dismal process. Thanks again, and if you ever want a testimonial, we’re here."
"My daughter was in your SelectivePrep class at North Park in December. I just wanted to let you know that she got into Payton and will be going there next fall. We are very excited. Two kids in Payton for us, and we are done with the system."
"I wanted to thank you very much for all of your effort. Your diligence, attentiveness, and concern for our daughter (and I’m sure all the other kids you taught) was duly noted. I would add that she had a much tougher road than our older daughter who was accepted into Payton two years ago. With the conversion to MAP testing, combined with the Selective High School Exam, it was a daunting task for these kids to properly prepare. You were a big part of her emotional stability as well; you kept her relaxed and confident while she worked diligently. Thanks for your efforts."
"I just realized that I haven’t yet shared that my daughter took the SelectivePrep class to prep for the Selective Enrollment Exam – she scored 297 out of 300. She is very excited to be going to Whitney Young next year. Thanks for all of your help."

Thank you so much!"
"My son was in your 8th grade entrance exam prep class. He got a perfect score of 300 on the exam and got in to Northside College Prep. He benefited from going through the 7th grade MAP test prep as well as the 8th grade entrance exam prep. Thank you so much for all of your help."
"I am happy to inform you that my son did pass the selective enrollment test. His score was 805 out of 900. He did get admitted to his 1st selection which is Brooks for the 2015-2016 school year.
