Admission requirements, placement policy, fee structure and transportation for JIS

Admission Requirements and Placement Policy

The basic criteria for placement are the age of the child on September 5th as decreed by The Ministry of Education and the school’s assessment of the child during the admissions process. However, other factors will also be considered, including maturity, previous educational experience, and level of achievement, level of English and Math (at least 60% achievement at the time of entry).

N.B Please see specific requirements for grades 9-12 students in Section school admissions and requirements

As well, given the international nature of our student population and the varying admissions requirements of other countries then children who do not satisfy the starting date criteria will be considered on a case by case basis by the Deputy Director so that their placement is in their best interests. The school reserves the right to place each child in the class deemed to be most appropriate and beneficial to that child.

Responsibility of The School and Parents

1. The school and its representatives will take all reasonable care to ensure the educational and physical well-being of the student under its care. We undertake to inform parents in a timely fashion of any areas of concern and to work with the parents to reach a suitable conclusion. The school reserves the right to deny admissions or to exclude a child if it feels it cannot offer an appropriate program, if information regarding a child has not been submitted accurately or if the school feels the child is an unsatisfactory member of the school community. In all cases the Directors decision is final.
2.Parents are responsible for getting their child to school:
  1. Punctually by 7:55am for an 8:00am start.
  2. With healthy and nutritious food. Children in KG to grade 2 do not use the canteen
  3. Neatly dressed in the school’s Uniform. PE uniform can only be worn on PE days.
  4. Ready for all lessons with all necessary books and materials.
