Admissions Policy

Admissions Policy

Although we require no academic prerequisites for acceptance into PYP 1, prospective students at these levels are interviewed; they must be toilet-trained and able to speak and follow simple instructions.

All other prospective students take relevant assessment tests in a number of subjects. These tests help to determine if the student has attained the minimum expected standard for each subject. MHIS then makes final placement decisions but can resort to various strategies at its disposal to help bring a student to the required level. Special academic support is offered at the discretion of the school.

Appointments for assessment testing can be made by contacting the admission office through the school phone numbers or email address.
