Age Requirement and Grade Placement: We understand that enrolling families are coming from and going onto a variety of educational systems that may not be similar to EIS grade name, curriculum and instruction. In fact, in choosing EIS, you have chosen to enroll your student which is both a very challenging academic curriculum and many opportunities for all round development. Regardless of the month of enrollment, the sudent must have reached the required age for his or her intended entry grade on or before August 31st of the school calender year.
The minimum age requirement for school enrollment are as follows:
The criteria for enrollment into all other grades shall be based not only on age, but also on school records, academic achievements, grade level completion and sequential studies. Student’s whose age at high school graduation would exceed by two years the normal age for graduation, would not normally be enrolled in the school. Applicants applying from schools using calender year school years (from January – December) applying for January enrollment should apply to join the grade level they have just completed. All exceptions to the minimum age level shall be decided only by the Principal.
