Students are admitted and placed in a grade level after considering their age, achievement level, grade level at their previous school, and emotional and physical maturity. In addition, HQIS will always take into account the student's country of origin, the educational system from which the student comes, as well as the student's past performance in that system. The age placement cut off date is September 30.
Grade Level Placement
Upon admission, students are provided with a learning program based on their readiness and maturity. Acceleration to a higher grade or retention in a lower grade is based on a student's ability and achievement after enrollment.When necessary, teachers, administrators, and parents meet to discuss concerns regarding grade level placement.
The HQIS Early Childhood program is designed to offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum for children at each age level, therefore students in Toddler, Early Years, and Preschool grades will not be considered for acceleration.
Before applying for enrollment, parents and students who have special learning needs will need to consult with HQIS to be sure the school can accomodate for your child.
In some cases, HQIS will conduct an interview with the student to determine enrollment and placement.
