From Grade 2 onwards, assignment to a grade level is based on previous school records, within the age requirements.

We welcome students from different countries and differing school calendars. Applicants from countries, whose school year finishes during December-March, will continue for an additional semester in the grade most recently completed. After careful consideration of the application, students are placed in the appropriate grade level, which meet our curriculum, expectations, as well as performance on any test the Administration may wish to administer.

The School recognizes that there may be differences in opinion of parents regarding grade placement. However, the Superintendent reserves the right to make all final determinations regarding placement.

For our youngest learners, initial grade assignments are made by birth date, so that they receive age and developmentally appropriate foundations.

School Hours

School starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. We offer a half-day option for Early Childhood (2,3 and 4-year-olds).


The scholarship is designed to provide tuition fee assistance to families in need of financial assistance. There is a limited number allocated each year. Scholarship applicants apply through the regular admissions process and must meet the general admissions criteria. Scholarships will be awarded following the admissions acceptance process.

  • The primary language spoken by the student
