New Family Visits
It is recommended to call the school and arrange a scheduled appointment if you desire to meet with the admissions office for any reason. The appointment will be held in the main office.
The International School Eastern Seaboard is a university‑preparatory institution. Only students who intend to seek admission to a university will be accepted. Applicants are admitted and retained on the basis of their ability to meet the academic and behavioral expectations of the school. Admissions decisions are made in the best interest of the applicant.
The right is reserved to refuse admission to any applicant who does not meet the admissions requirements. The right is also reserved to determine the placement of an accepted applicant in the grade level or subjects deemed most appropriate for the student’s success.
The Admissions Team evaluates the following when considering an applicant for admission:
- Entrance screening results.
- Academic records and teacher recommendations from the current school.
- English language proficiency.
- Need for Learning Support (LS).
- Parent’s role in supporting the child in his/her education.
In accordance with ISE’s commitment to being a family school, special consideration is given to qualified siblings of currently enrolled students. Despite this consideration, there is, however, no guarantee of admission.
The parents are informed of the decision and an enrolment date is set. The earliest a student may begin is one full day after the screening.
Admissions into Grade 12
ISE offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), which is an internationally recognized and externally examined diploma program. It consists of two‑year courses spread over grades 11 and 12. As a result, it is rare to accept a new student onto the IB Diploma program in grade 12. If a course schedule can be made guaranteeing the student will meet the IBDP graduation requirements and the student must begin school within the first quarter of grade 12.
Students are required to live with at least one parent or legal guardian while enrolled at ISE. This policy is enforced beginning on the date the applicant is scheduled for entrance tests and interviews.
