Interviewing for The Downtown School

With the admissions season fully underway, one of my favorite parts of the week is meeting with students and their parents and guardians during the interview portion of the application process. The interview helps me get a fuller understanding of a student and their passions and interests, and it helps the student and their family learn more about our approach and have their questions answered in a personal conversation.

Interviews take place at the KEXP Gathering Space - right around the corner from The Downtown School (which is currently under construction). The student and I spend 20 minutes in an informal conversation, then invite parents and guardians to join us so that everyone can have their questions answered. There’s no need to prepare anything in advance, and it’s fine to dress casually. I’ll come and meet you at the designated time.

Interviews are scheduled online within Ravenna, the online application system - now is a great time to schedule an interview slot! You can learn more about interviews and the application process for The Downtown School on our admissions page.
