We place students into the appropriate grade based on their age on September 1 of their year of entry, as per our Age-Grade Placement Table, below.
In cases where applicants apply from a different education system or country, grade placement will be considered sequentially according to the programme in which they are currently enrolled or have last completed.
In exceptional circumstances, an applicant may have fallen behind in their education due to illness, time spent abroad, etc. When it appears most beneficial for the student, s/he may be placed in a grade lower than indicated on our placement table, after discussion with the family.
An applicant would only be placed in a grade higher than their age group in exceptional cases. Factors considered for such an exception might include:
The age-grade cut-off date in the child’s country of origin
The child’s successful completion of the equivalent grade elsewhere
A transcript or report cards from the previous years demonstrating exceptional academic performance and social skill
Please note that no exceptions are granted to PreSchool students based on age or prior school experience.
The final decision on grade placement will be taken by the School based on all the information gathered through the application process.
Students in PreSchool to Grade 5 attend our Primary School campus (Kalnciema iela 118), and students in Grades 6 to 12 attend our Secondary School campus (Vesetas iela 9).
