Students are ordinarily placed in the appropriate grade indicated by their previous schooling.
If a question regarding placement arises, the following factors are considered in parent/school discussions:

  1. School records
  2. Chronological age
  3. Evidence of maturity
  4. Results of entrance or standardized tests

The school does not practice acceleration of students (skipping a grade) in cases of high achievement. New students who are non-native English speakers may be placed at a lower grade level at the principal’s discretion, but not more than one grade lower than chronological age. Placing students lower than this hinders their social development. Students placed one grade below their chronological age may have an opportunity to be promoted to the class corresponding to their chronological age at the end of their first year.

Students will not be placed in a certain grade or level based on the parent’s preference for a certain teacher.
