Admitting best-fit students ensures Proof School will fulfill its mission: giving kids who love math a school community all their own.
Who are we are looking for? Young people with exceptional mathematical ability and a deep passion for mathematics or computer science–and parents who can see beyond “regular” curriculum.
Sound like someone you know?
You know a math kid when you see one–in action. A student who is internally driven to pursue math–not externally pushed–will thrive at Proof School. But a passion for math or computer science is not enough. Proof School is committed to developing well-rounded individuals, so applicants will need to demonstrate academic or personal achievement in non-mathematical subjects as well. Do you have a math kid?
The mathematics part of the selection process will include a challenging qualifying test and an interview with a panel of Proof School staff. Students will need to provide evidence of exceptional mathematical skills, mathematical writing samples, a personal statement about their mathematical interests, and letters of recommendation.
Achievement outside of math will be evaluated on the basis of transcripts, test scores, writing, work and portfolio samples, and teacher recommendations.
