Our child does not speak English. Will QSI Malta still accept them?
Yes. We offer Intensive English lessons to these students at no extra cost. When the student is ready, they are integrated into the QSI curriculum.
If my child is advanced/needs reinforcement in an area, what provisions are made?
Students who need it, are given additional help which will include re-teaching the concepts plus additional extra lessons at no further cost. Advanced students are challenged either by moving forward through the curriculum at a faster pace or by challenging the students with materials at a higher level. Each student may also be given the option to participate in online courses, through QSI Virtual School (QVS), under the supervision of a teacher.
Apart from the registration, capital fund and tuition fees, are there any other costs involved?
Parents do not need to buy text books as these are loaned to the students by the school. Study trips and extra-curricular activities are included in the tuition fees. If annual school trips are planned out of the country, parents will be asked to pay for it.
Do you offer trial days to students who may be interested in attending?
Yes. Students are encouraged to join in classes for a day to experience the QSI educational system. An appointment with the Director must be scheduled.
