The Canadian International School of Beijing will accept applications from new students throughout the year. CISB admits students on the basis of “rolling admissions,” taking completed applications in the order in which they arrive until no space remains in a given class.
Admission process is composed of 3 steps: application, student assessment and acceptance. Prior to being considered for admission to CISB, students must file a complete application and submit all documentation as required.
CISB Admission procedure is transparent and fully explained to the parents of prospective students.
CRITERIA FOR ACCEPTANCE TO CISB
1. Academic Skills
CISB is a university preparatory school that challenges students to meet the highest standards and expects each student to learn to their maximum potential. Based on previous school transcripts and reports, applicants must show their motivation to achieve successfully the high academic standards of CISB.
2. Social Skills
CISB is a learning community bound together by adherence to the principles of respect, responsibility and honesty. As such, CISB accepts only students whose past record demonstrates a clear commitment to these principles.
3. Physical or Learning Disabilities
CISB accepts students with mild learning disabilities and with certain physical disabilities. Nevertheless, CISB cannot accept students whose physical or learning disability is judged by our academic staff to be such that we cannot effectively educate the child.
The maximum class size at CISB is 25 students.
In the case of a child being accepted to CISB but with no space available in the class, the child is placed on a waiting list.
Accepted students are placed on a waiting list strictly in chronological order by date of completed application. Priority is given to:
o CISB Alumni: returning students
o Siblings: siblings of students already enrolled in the school
