All new students are given a Chinese assessment in late August and students are placed in an appropriate level Chinese class.There are 2 types of Chinese programs at the SMIC School, Yuwen (for native Chinese speakers) and CSL (Chinese as a second language). Within the CSL (Chinese as a second language) program, there are various levels in which students can be placed depending on their Chinese proficiency. We offer a very solid Chinese language program at the SMIC School.
A final decision for admission is based on the result of the entrance exams, 2 years of school records from previous school (this does not apply to kindergarten and Grade 1 applicants), previous standardized reports and teacher recommendations.
