OUR ADMISSION POLICY
Our admission team is always available to give you information about our school and to discuss with you what would be the best option for your child(ren).
Montgomery International School is inclusive and welcomes students from all backgrounds, nationalities and cultures. When moving to a different country, we understand that choosing the right school for your children is the most important decision you will have to make. The admission team helps you define the best options for your children in order to reach their highest academic and personal potential within our institution. The final decision regarding enrolment and the choice of classes will be based on the student's academic and personal background, his/ her wishes and the options offered at EIM.
Grades 1 to 5 / PYP 1-5
We accept all students from the age of 5 to the age of 11. In order to confirm registration, the last two report cards (if applicable) will be requested to allow EIM to get to know the student better.
Grades 6 to 10 / MYP 1-5
To enrol in the MYP, students must have successfully completed and acquired the necessary knowledge and skills in their previous years of study. Therefore, to confirm enrolment in the appropriate grade level, the last two report cards will be requested to allow EIM to better assess the student's academic level and skills. In some cases, and if the results on the report cards, interviews, etc. do not allow us to define the best choice of courses and level, the student will potentially be requested to take placement tests in English and/or French.
Grades 11 and 12 / DP 1-2
To enrol in the DP, students will be required to submit his/her report cards from the previous two years. If necessary, EIM will also contact the student's former school in order to obtain information on his/her academic situation, the choices to be made for his/her courses or on any special arrangements he/she might need. In addition, the student will be required to take a placement test for the mathematics course as well as in French or English, depending on his/her language profile. All of these elements will also be accounted for in the choice of subjects to be taken at the SL and HL. In the event that a candidate wishes to register for DP 2 (transfer from another IB school), the programme coordinator will contact the other school to determine whether transfer is possible and under which conditions. This will determine whether the other school's Diploma Programme is in line with our own. A meeting will also be set up between the student and the university counselor of the school.
Implementation, evaluation and revision of the Admissions Policy
The admission policy is developed by the Diploma Programme Coordinator, the Middle Years Programme Coordinator, and section principals. This policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it is up-to-date with school procedures.
