How are ZIS students selected?

We are an inclusive school, believing in the potential of every student to learn, grow, and achieve.  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.  Admission for students with exceptionalities beyond that which we can provide for will require special consultation.

Can we arrange a visit to campus?

Anyone interested in visiting ZIS are asked to arrange an appointment with the school beforehand.  The school is happy to organize 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.

Feel welcome to contact us by email or by telephone.

How long does it take to process my application?

We work closely with families to make their transition to Zhuhai and our school.  For primary students it is possible to process applications within 24 to 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.  For secondary students we endeavour to process the application within 48 hours.
