  • Do siblings have priority?

  • Who should provide a reference?

    All MYP and DP applicants need to provide a character, academic and/or co-curricular activities reference. References are optional for PYP applicants.

    These references provide more information about the child’s personality, interests and experiences from the perspective of a teacher, coach or family friend. If you experience any difficulty with requesting and receiving a reference, please let the Admissions office know.

  • What does the assessment look like?

    Assessments take place in December and January, depending on the grade the applicant is applying for. The purpose of the assessment is to determine if a child is ready for and interested in our programme. Children are not expected to prepare for the assessment in advance.
  • What is the English language requirement?

    Applicants must be fluent in English. Language proficiency will be determined through the admissions interview and written assessment.
