Student Placement Guide

Following admissions procedures, a placement examination is given to each student 6 years old and above to determine the appropriate level of instruction. This exam involves Reading, Language Arts, and Mathematics. To enter the 5-year-olds class a child will have completed 5 years of age no later than November 1st. This pattern is applied to the other classes in the school. (Exceptions may be made for November or December birthdays. The Director may make a decision in consultation with teachers and parents.) Other exceptions require a meeting leading to documented approval of both the parents and the school administration. It is very important for students to be placed at the appropriate learning level in order for them to succeed and progress.
