For younger students, we follow a strict policy cut-off date of October 1. A child must be three to enter Primary 1, four to enter Primary 2, five to enter Primary 3, and six to enter Grade 1 on or before the cut-off date. After this, other factors such as readiness, maturity, academic history, and level of motivation are taken into account
For students whose countries of origin follow a different school year (e.g. South Africa, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand) and who arrive during our second semester, students are placed back in their previous grade level equivalent.
