Review Process 

After receipt of all completed admissions documents, the Admissions Committee will review the application and make an admissions decision. 

All middle school and high school applicants are evaluated to determine their level of mathematics ability. Along with past grades, a test is used to determine correct placement in the appropriate mathematics class. Another integral part of the review process is an assessment of the applicant’s English language abilities. An essay, written by the applicant helps in determining the student’s level of ability in language arts and in English language usage. 

Applicants and parents may be asked to meet with a counselor and/or Principal to share more information about the applicant’s ability to benefit from the curriculum at TAISM
