5. Breif introduction
Children will be placed in the most appropriate grade based on age and prior education. Children may be moved either up or down a grade level based on teacher and counselor recommendations and after
consultation with the parents, principal and director. The administration reserves the right to determine the most appropriate grade for each student.
Children over eighteen years of age will not be considered for admission.Will not consider new student applications for grades 9-12 after the start of the 4th quarter except under exceptional circumstances.
Gives admission priority to qualified students in the following categories: students from English speaking countries, students from other under-represented countries, students with siblings enrolled in QISS,
and children of Korean Consulate and Thailand Consulate employees.
Acceptable applicants for grades that are full will be placed on a wait list, in order, according to their priority and suitability. When a space in that grade becomes available, QISS will select the next
student from the wait list, based on the school’s priorities and needs of the grade under consideration.
Applicants who do not meet the minimum level of English proficiency required for admission may request a second opportunity to test after 3 months. If such students still do not meet the minimum standard,
they must wait to re-apply again for the next school year. Applicants deemed unsuitable for admission for other reasons must also wait to re-apply for the following school year.
For ALL new students who enroll at QISS, the school reserves the right to evaluate that student’s grade placement and overall suitability during the first thirty (30) days of enrollment. If the school
determines that the grade placement was incorrect, the student will be moved to the appropriate level
6 . Review of Application and Further Screening
Once the application documents have been reviewed, all applicable(grades 2-12) will be invited to schedule a testing appointment, this appointment lasts about two and half hours and will include a personal
interview, a writing sample and computer math and reading tests. The purpose of the interview is to determine whether the applicant is a suitable match for QISS and whether English language support will be needed.
In all cases, students applying to grades 2-12 will require further assessment of their English proficiency to determine whether they have sufficient English language skills to be successful in our academic
