Age and grade guidelines
At CIS, the holistic nature of our programme sees our students busy learning and interacting with their peers in and out of the classroom.
When students are placed in a grade that aligns with our age and grade boundaries, they are more likely to thrive, as significant differences in age and developmental stages can be challenging for the child and their peers.
Grade placement at CIS is according to age. Children must be the age indicated by 31 August in the year of entry. Our minimum age requirements for entry into each grade level are outlined in the table below.
