LWHS accepts SSAT or ISEEtest scores. Please note that we must receive score reports from each testing organization, and will not accept photocopied or unofficial reports from applicant families. Scores will not be accepted for tests taken after January 2017.
Members of our Admissions Interview Committee will conduct 30-minute interviews with student applicants. Students are interviewed in pairs and engage in conversation about their interests and hopes for their high school experience. Student interviews are informal in nature, so no preparation is necessary.
Interviews are scheduled after the Admissions Office receives Part I: Parent/Guardian Application and the application fee.
Recommendation forms should be completed by the applicant's counselor/principal, 8th grade math, and 8th grade English teachers. Be courteous by submitting a recommendation request to your teachers by November 1, so they have plenty of time to complete the recommendations.
The forms and the envelopes must be signed and sealed by your teacher, or emailed from their school email address, and sent directly to the LWHS Admissions OfficebyJanuary 12, 2017.
Your parent/guardian must complete the Transcript Release Form and deliver it to your school's counselor/registrar to have your 7th and 8th grade transcript sent to the LWHS Admissions Officeby January 12, 2017. If your 8th grade fall semester or trimester grades will not be completed by then, please ask your school's registrar to send them to our Admissions Office as soon as they are available.
