One or both parents should accompany the student on the day of the interview. The family should come to the front office and give the student’s name to the receptionist at the front desk. A teacher or administrator will come out to meet you.
The purpose of the interview is to get to know you, find out your interests, and answer your questions. After the interview the parent(s) will have a few minutes alone with the interviewer to ask questions about the school or share insights about the student.
The total length of the visit is usually no longer than 40 minutes. Plan to arrive a few minutes early, as interviews take place during a free class period for the interviewer — if you are late, there will be less time available for the interview.
