It’s January! Here at East Woods, our eighth grade students, their parents, and our faculty and administration are very focused on an important watershed moment in their EWS careers: the secondary school application process. The time spent on high school placement is always a time for perspiration and bated breath as we send off the lovingly prepared application portfolios for each eighth grader, a product of hours of work by the students, their parents, and our staff. As our work on this diminishes, the secondary school admissions committees go into overdrive as they receive applications.
East Woods graduates have always attended prestigious boarding schools, local independent day schools, parochial schools and the top academic tracks at the public high schools in their home districts. This golden tradition continues into the present day. Our students are eagerly sought after by outstanding secondary schools. Some of the independent schools EWS graduates have been accepted to in the last five years are: Choate Rosemary Hall, Deerfield Academy, Portledge School, Friends Academy, Hotchkiss, Taft, Millbrook, Groton and Chaminade.
