There is no strict selection procedure as such but students are assessed and interviewed and tests in English may be administered to all students whose first language is not English. The object of the interviews and assessments is not strictly on a pass / fail basis but to assess any learning support either in language or in other aspects of learning that a student may need. Parents will be fully advised of the results of assessments though marks from any English testing will not be released.
Anyone interested in visiting ZIS should have the courtesy to telephone the school beforehand. The school is happy to arrange visits at short notice and all interested parties are invited to tour the school and ask any questions they wish about the school and any aspects of its operations.
Please contact the school office who will advise you further about this.
The turn around is usually within 24 or 48 hours though for younger children who do an ‘in-class’ assessment this may take longer depending on the agreed dates and times of the class visit.
