Grade Placement

When placing a student into the correct grade, consideration is given to age and the child’s previous academic history, as well as to their physical and emotional maturity. Children requiring additional learning support may be accepted if it is agreed that AIS can accommodate their needs.
When considering a child’s age, the cut-off for each grade is October 1st.
