Testing Information


We ask all applicants to take the Wechsler Intelligence Scale test. The Wechsler Intelligence Scale is a test of cognitive ability, and is not achievement-based. Students for whom SCDS is a good fit score at or above the 97th percentile in either the Full-Scale Intelligence Quotient (FSIQ) or General Abilities Index (GAI). We do, however, consider scores that fall close to the 97th percentile for students who demonstrate other gifted characteristics. A licensed psychologist should send WPPSI-IV or WISC-V results directly to our office. Kindly see below for licensed psychologists that our families have worked with in the past.

If our testing requirement is a financial hardship for your family, please contact Kate Briscoe, Director of Admissions, directly: 206.691.2625.
