On our last admission blog post “Top 2 Tips from a Private School Admission Officer,” we received the following comment from a reader:
I’d love your insights on how to help a slow-to-warm/”shy” child with their interview process and your experience with students who are more introverted at first.
We love and value the introverts on our campus! In fact, we hear from parents that one of our strengths is making space for quiet students in classrooms and in leadership positions. We are sensitive to the challenges interviews can pose for those who are quiet, and our interviewers work to make all students at ease and to bring them into the conversation.
