At the end of this one year period, the child has to go through a placement test to get admission in 1st grade. The child will not be promoted if he/she is found unfit for the 1st grade.


Elementary School

1st to 5th grade education is known as “Elementary School”.

•     A school bus service is available to serve this cohort of children.

The child will only receive an evaluation on his/her performance with this categorical structure: “Excellent”, “Good”, “Satisfactory”, and “Needs Improvement”.  Only after the child reaches the 4th grade may alphabetical grades, A, B, C, D, be given.  In very rare circumstances does a child fail to be promoted from the Elementary level. Student’s performance is tested by conducting the IOWA or CAT test.
