The AISL school year starts in August and ends in June. Applicants for admission to AISL are strongly encouraged to apply as early as possible, as the school may be at capacity in certain grade levels.
An application will not be processed for admission until the Admissions Director has received all the necessary documents, as outlined in the “Application Requirements” section. Kindly note that this includes confirmation that application fee has been received from AISL's Business Office. While school is in session, the expected processing time for applications that are complete is three to five working days.
The Admissions Director will review the application and contact you if further information, documents or screening are required. The application is then reviewed by the Elementary, Middle, or High School Admissions Committee for an admissions decision.
Offer of Placement
If there is an opening in the appropriate grade level, and your child meets all admission criteria, you will be contacted by the Admission’s Director by email with an offer of admission.
An applicant may be denied admission when there are concerns about academic, social or emotional stability and when AISL is unable to offer a program to meet adequately an individual student’s learning needs. If this is the case, the Admissions Director will contact you by email to let you know that the application was not successful.
An applicant may be called in for an entrance assessment when a vacancy occurs at the appropriate grade level as determined by the student age/grade level guidelines. The entrance assessment may include: assessment in the basic skills, vocabulary, reading comprehension, spelling, mathematics and written expression. Students are expected to score at or above grade level in the above areas in order to be granted admission.
Student Waiting List
If an application meets admission requirements, but the applicant is applying for enrollment in a grade that is full, then that applicant will be placed on the student waiting list. The waiting list is maintained in a priority manner as to the date of application and priority listings. Because of AISL's Admission Policy, an applicant's position on the student wait list may change if there are subsequent applications from families from other categories.It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian of students on the waiting list to email the Admissions Office and update their child's file at least every 6 months to keep their child's file active. Failure to do will result in the child being removed from the wait list and the application being deactivated. Only applications that are complete will be considered for admission when spaces become available.
