Enrolment requirements

The following enrolment requirements are adhered to:

  • Students are placed in a class compatible with their age on evidence of successful completion of the preceding grade or year.

Students moving from a school where the academic year ends partway through the AISZ school year will continue in the same grade. For example, if a student has successfully completed the AISZ equivalent of Grade 4 in December at their current school, that student will remain in Grade 4 for the second semester at AISZ (January - June). If a student has successfully completed half of grade 4 by the time they are to begin school at AISZ in August, then they will complete a full year of Grade 4 at AISZ (August - June). Exceptions to this will only be made if it is demonstrably evident that the student would be better served in a different grade level.
