We invite you to read the information below to find out how to start the application process that is differentiated based on the age of your child.
Applications are welcomed from all students who can benefit from a challenging, international, university preparatory, English language education and exhibit respectful, responsible behaviour.
ISG enrols children from age 3 to 18 (Pre-School through Grade 12). Enrolment and grade placement depend on the assessment of academic performance, and a screening for the English language.
Admission to ISG is based upon available space and upon the ability of the school to offer a program suitable for the applicants’ educational needs. The Language support and Special Needs departments are involved in the admissions process in order to guarantee to the child the best support and integration in class.
When to apply
Children are welcome to join us at any time during the school year and into any year group, space permitting. The enrolment period for the current school year remains open throughout the year. In general, the enrolment period for the following school year opens in October.
The Admission process is differentiated based on the age of the child. Please read the information below organized based on the age of the child and the school sections.
Grade comparison chart
The students’ placement is generally based on the year of birth and the academic background of the child. Factors such as native language development, social and emotional development, previous school progress reports, teacher observation, and parent comments will be used to determine the appropriate grade placement. The cut-off time is December 31st: in general all students born in the year of reference are placed in class together.
