Frequently Asked Questions
Please contact the Admissions Office as soon as you think that you would like to send your child to AISK. Whether you are moving to Kingston from overseas or a local parent looking for another option of schooling for your child. There is no need to have secure plans in place to make an initial inquiry.

If there is no space available in a grade for which an applicant has been accepted, the applicant can remain on a wait list until a space becomes available. The applicant will be required to pay a nonrefundable, nontransferable deposit against AISK fees. As soon as a place becomes available you will be contacted so that your child may commence classes at the start of the upcoming semester.
Each student's record is considered carefully. Usually, Southern Hemisphere students who finish a grade in their home country in December will augment their learning with an additional semester at that same grade level at AISK. Normally, a student is not immediately promoted to the next grade level, as it would mean skipping a full semester of that year's work. While this can be disappointing, we've seen that most gains parents hope their children will receive by immediate promotion do not materialize because of gaps in learning and/or process. Any exceptions to this policy are determined by the Principal on the basis of school records, the applicant's age, and the results of the placement evaluation.
