Age & Year Levels

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. Placing a student in an age-appropriate class has academic, emotional and social benefits, which will ensure effective learning progression for your child. Within certain grade levels, we offer composite classes therefore affording our students diversity in teaching and learning methodology.

A student may be placed in a class that may differ from their current age, if after a thorough assessment, we believe that it will enhance the students learning experience with us. This will only be done in consultation with the parents and teacher by the Principal. After this consultation, the final decision will be made by the Principal on the placement of the student.

The age and grade table provided, outline the grade your child should enter in the respective academic year.
