At HAIS we will generally place students in the year level that corresponds with their age. In certain cases, we will need to look at the child’s language and academic abilities, as well as the child’s emotional and social maturity.
A student may be placed in a class that may not be age appropriate, but this will only be done in consultation with the parents by the principal. The decision on a placement of a student in a different class will be at the sole discretion of the principal.
You will see on the ages and year level document below the appropriate level for your child to enter the school.
To facilitate a high standard of teaching and learning, the class size is maintained at a maximum of 16 per classroom.
