International students who apply to Vistamar School must take the TOEFL
or equivalent. Vistamar School's TOEFL code is "C219." The TOEFL test measures all four academic skills — reading, listening, speaking and writing. The TOEFL is one factor we consider in gaining a clear academic picture of each applicant.
The combined minimum score we typically accept for a 9th grade applicant is 60 (the equivalent score in Duolingo is 100).
For transfer 10th grade applicants the TOEFL minimum score is 72 (the equivalent score in Duolingo is 105), given that Vistamar’s Humanities program in 10th grade requires a higher proficiency level in the target language than in 9th grade.
For transfers to 11th and 12th grade, a combined TOEFL score of 91 is required (the equivalent score in Duolingo is 120).
Here are performance descriptors
for the TOEFL iBT test. An equivalency chart for the two tests can be downloaded here.
If students have also taken the ISEE, SSAT, PSAT, or AP Testing we will accept and review those official scores as well. Here are our school codes: ISEE: 054327 & SSAT: 7976
All test results must come to Vistamar School directly from the testing company or through the agency.
