Grade Level Placement

Students are admitted and placed in grades with consideration of: age, school records, achievement level, emotional and physical maturity, and placement screening. Children are placed in classes along with their age-peers. The age cut-off date for determining class placement is August 31st of the school year you are applying for. Once students are enrolled into AISD, they will be assured of continued enrollment as long as they are achieving satisfactory academic results, fees are paid, and demonstrate good behavior.

AISD closely follows an age/grade policy and places students in the appropriate grade level according to their age and ability. AISD reviews the placement of each child individually and believes children are best served when placed in their respective aged peer groups. With this in mind, the school reserves the right to make the final placement decision.

Below is a guide to help you understand which grade your child would most likely be placed in at AISD.
