CLASS GROUPING FOR INSTRUCTION

Students are assigned to their classes according to their age and level of English proficiency. We administer a language level test on the first day of classes for students ages 7 and older to evaluate efficiently and effectively the level of students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiency in English. Students 6 years and younger are generally placed into classes by age, except in special circumstances in which a significant difference exists between the language level of the child and his/her peers.
