Throughout my admissions process into Fieldstone I felt that they really cared about me as a person. During the admission process, I did go through testing however, it wasn’t a process of elimination to see who was the smartest but I felt like it was done to assess the level of the new students to best accommodate them into their new learning environment. To me this was everything because I came from a public school that didn’t have the resources or time to ensure that my level of learning was the same as everybody else. There was also an interview to see what I was interested in as a student, and the goals I had previously set for myself. Fieldstone, took my level of learning and allowed me to catch up and even get ahead!
Personally, I applied because of the appeal of the Cambridge program, and that is most definitely a selling point of the school. From my conversation with the admissions officer, I felt like the school was helpful in making sure I was going into an environment that was the right fit for me. I knew I could definitely count on support while applying, and I realized coming in how welcoming they were when they introduced me to the city during orientation, given that I was new to the country. They actively and thoroughly look into your previous academic records to ensure your viability for the level of rigor you are to encounter within the school. Their commitment to success was evident from the start, which made me realize that I was coming to the right place.
When I did my admissions, I was eleven. My advice to someone that is applying is to not freak out because it is a very calm process. It is also good to maintain an open mind and show that you care deeply about your education and that you have passions outside of that. Remain courteous and respectful. My experience with applying for admission was very relaxed because the admissions officers worked with me a lot to find out if I was a good fit for the school. They gave me the opportunity to express myself and I was given a wonderful tour of the school. I will always remember how welcomed they made me feel and how they helped me to understand more about the school.
