To begin the application process families should contact the Principal. Where possible, the applicant and his or her family should make an appointment for an interview and tour of the school campus. Such a visit often helps to reduce anxiety and answer questions about transfer to a new school, often in a new location.
The application forms or the online application form must be completed and school records for the last two years submitted. An official English translation of the records is required before acceptance. This does not apply to applications for the Early Learning Centre. These documents should be sent to TEMIS as soon as possible to facilitate a decision by the school administration and ensure that ample notification of this decision is given to you.
If there are questions about, for example, the applicant’s level of English or differences in the educational systems, the student and parents will be invited to come in for an interview and assessment. Final grade placement is the decision of the Principal.
All secondary school students with English as a second language (ESL) will be given an English and a Maths placement test, and the results of these assessments may affect the admission decision.
Students eligible for admission according to the above standards will receive an acceptance notification and must pay an Admission Fee before their names will be placed on the class list. Students cannot begin class until fees are paid in advance.
The Board of Governors reserves the right to refuse admission to a student if:
- it is determined that the student would not benefit educationally from the school’s programs;
- the student has such a poor scholastic/behavioural record as to be deemed unsuitable for the TEMIS school community;
- the student does not reside with a parent or recognized adult guardian;
- the special educational needs required by the student cannot be met by the school.
