Terminale

Students are generally enrolled into year levels at AIS based on their age. The table below indicates AIS cut-off dates for enrolment based on date of birth.

A child’s social and physical maturity, proven academic ability and educational experience will be taken into consideration if a parent wishes their child to enter a year level outside the cut-off date. The academic staff will provide an assessment, and the Principal will make the final decision. Students coming from southern hemisphere schools, particularly in the upper primary years, will be evaluated on their past school reports, their academic and learning experiences, their social and physical development and parental discussion. It is usually advisable to allow children time to adjust to their new environment, and establish friendship groups, rather than feeling pressured to advance 6 months in their academic performance.
