For the 2018-2019 test year, we provided private SHSAT prep to thirty students. Now that the results are in, it’s time for us to reflect on our performance.
When a parent calls City Smarts wanting to begin SHSAT prep too far in advance, I tell them to call me back in the spring.
The SHSAT is very much a goldilocks kind of test. It’s a tricky, rigorous exam that does demand months of practice (from most students, at least), but too much tutoring is a certain recipe for burn-out.
Every year, we host a special parents night event for parents of 6th, 7th, 10th, and 11th graders focused on arming them with clear, actionable information on high school and college admissions. The event is free, but an RSVP is required.
