Admission Policy

Admitting a student to a grade level depends on the following factors;

・availability of places
・English language proficiency
・previous school records
・siblings・special abilities
・previous international educational experience

Enrollment Age
Standard Admission

A child at the appropriate age for the grade level before 1st April of that academic year is eligible for standard admission.

6 years old 7 years old 8 years old 9 years old
Grade 5 Grade 6 Grade 7 Grade 8
10 years old 11 years old 12 years old 13 years old
Exceptional Admission

A child whose birthday is on or after 1st April of that academic year but has exceptional academic skills and appropriate social maturity may still be considered for admission into a particular grade. Acceptance is contingent upon a successful interview and previous school records.

Enrollment Time

Most children are admitted by April, but if vacancies exist the school will admit students throughout the course of the year.

Enrollment Interview and Assessment

All students must go through a level test and an individual interview in order to be accepted into Enishi International School. A placement assessment helps us determine the placement and whether English-as-an-Additional-Language (EAL) or other specialized assistance is required. Students might be asked to come for one day trial if it is necessary.

As a part of the application process, all parents must be present in the enrollment interview, which is to ensure the school’s philosophy and programs match parents’ educational beliefs and expectations.

Factors that contribute to acceptance depending on the grade are:

・Age-appropriate social skills
・Language ability
・Academic ability
・The current makeup of the class
