Step 2 - Testing

For admission to ISD, pre-testing may be required of an applicant in the following situations:

Student is transferring from a school where English is not the primary medium of instruction.

Student does not speak English fluently.

Please note that additional testing may be recommended (on a case-by-case basis) by the school’s Administration.

*Testing results are the property of ISD only and will not be shared with parents or students.

Step 3 - Decision Criteria

Only when all documents are received will admission decisions be rendered. Decisions are based on a careful examination of each student’s ability to achieve success in an atmosphere of high expectations and within the context of an English language-learning environment. In making this assessment, ISD will evaluate each candidate’s English language proficiency, demonstrated academic achievement and social/behavioral history.

ISD is unable to admit students with more than mild special needs.

This may include an interview. Pre-school (3 years old) and Junior Kindergarten (4 years old) applicants must be interviewed by ISD administration before a final admission decision is made.

Parents should note that class size/space availability and ELL guidelines also affect admission Recommendations.

Step 4 - Admission Status

The Director will inform parents of one of the following admission decisions via a written letter:

Accepted - If a student has qualified and if space allows, the student will be placed in the appropriate grade level. A provisional acceptance may be granted when an interview with the applicant or ELL testing of the student remains outstanding.

Wait List - If an applicant meets ISD admission requirements but is applying for enrollment in a grade level that is full, that applicant will be placed on the wait list for his/her class. Parents of wait-listed applicants will receive notification from the ISD office of the likelihood of admission during that school year at regular intervals. Based on the factors considered for admission decisions, a student’s position on the wait list may change.

Not Eligible - The applicant does not meet ISD eligibility and requirements for admission at this time. The decision is based on one or more of the before-mentioned criteria. Admission Probation: All admission decisions are probationary for one semester to ensure that the placement at ISD is appropriate for the student's success. After satisfactory progress for one semester the student will be fully admitted to ISD.
