Student Admissions
 
Admission to Gulf Stream School is determined by the Admissions Committee which is composed of the Director of Admissions, the Head of School, the Assistant Head of School, Pre-Primary, Lower School and Upper School Coordinators, and teachers at relevant grade levels.
 
Admission decisions are based on records from previously attended schools, standardized test scores, recommendations from teachers and administrators, and, in the case of Grades Two through Eight, Gulf Stream School teachers' observations of academic and social fit during a required day-long visit by the student. Applicants to Grades Two through Eight are also required to take the WISC IV (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children) administered by a licensed psychologist.
 
Preference is given to siblings, children of alumni, and faculty children. Gulf Stream School welcomes applicants with a variety of talents, interests, and perspectives without regard to race, religion, gender, economics, or national or ethnic origin.
