Students applying to enter Kindergarten and First Grade, who are younger than seven, should take the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV).

Students who are seven or older applying to enter First through Fifth Grades should take the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-V).

If you are having the test administered at another independent school, please request that school to furnish a copy of the results as soon as they are available. Test results for kindergarten applications should be submitted to Sabot at Stony Point no later than Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Testing for applicants to other grades should be submitted as soon as possible.
