The Spring/Fall Comprehensive course is a thirteen-week course that begins in the spring of students’ 7th grade year and extends through the fall of their 8th grade year, concluding right in time for the exam. This course is appropriate for students who are just beginning to prepare as well as for those who took our winter course. The comprehensive curriculum is designed to provide students with a strong foundation to master the SHSAT. We go beyond the introduction to the material and really zero in on the most challenging content, providing students with repeated opportunities to practice every question type on the test. Students will learn strategies for breaking down complex word problems, identifying answer traps, and managing their time. With a lot of practice and skill-building, we help students learn how to approach this complicated exam and maximize their scores.
Our Comprehensive course includes 3 practice (we will provide the practice dates in the detailed welcome email you will receive prior to beginning the course). We will provide students with detailed score reports for each practice test, homework after each class, as well as a summer packet with extra practice and resources so that students may continue prep independently during the summer between the spring and fall semesters.
The course fee includes a prep book, access to online materials, and three practice tests/detailed score reports.

The ELA teacher did a decent job at making the zoom calls interactive - by having students enter possible answers into the chat.
Lecturing is never the way to go. If you are going to continue to hold this class via Zoom, you MUST engage the students. My daughter was bored and not motivated to learn - especially from the Math teacher, who did very little to interact.

The teachers were very through in their teaching. We mainly had problems of logging on. Also the homework assignments were not posted promptly or Ronin 80% couldn’t log on to retrieve it. There’s either issue of him not being listed or teacher posted on Thursday (two days before their lesson on Saturday morning.)
I know the lesson starts at 10am but a lot of time Ronin has to wait up to 5 minutes in the waiting room before he could join. I suggest that the teacher starts inviting kids earlier so it doesn’t eat into the lesson time. Because no matter what the teacher log off right at 11 promptly but it doesn’t always start promptly.

My son said his Instructor,Mr.David Rice is very nice and his explanation is very clear.
My son wants a little more challenging math. (If he could solve the math problem quickly....he gets distracted while he is waiting for other kid’s answer)
