Steps to apply

Below you will find an overview of the six steps of the application process, from inquiry to enrollment. Click on the links below to find further details about each step.

We are passionate about welcoming new families to the school and introducing them to what makes EIS unique. We are here to guide you through all stages of the application process, and to offer you individualized assistance. We know that phone calls and websites can’t capture the feeling of walking onto EIS’s campus and seeing the students and their teachers in their daily activities. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss our school and our admissions process, and show you our campus.

Please note that admissions meetings and school tours are available by appointment only.

Before starting the application process, please make sure that you have selected the correct grade level placement for your child. It is also very important that parents of students who have an individualized learning plan or who have been diagnosed or tested for any learning differences (e.g. ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Speech Delay, Autistic Spectrum Disorder etc.) have contacted the Admissions Office in order to ensure our ability to provide appropriate learning support.

Learning Support Services

In order to ensure that we are able to provide the appropriate level of learning support, we ask that all parents of child/ren with an individualized learning plan or diagnosed learning differences inform the Admissions Office before starting the application process. Please be prepared to provide all supporting documentation related to the IEP and/or the diagnosis, including (but not necessarily limited to):

  • Previous year’s learning plan (IEP)
  • A report stating diagnosis (could be one or more of the following)
  • Psycho-educational report
  • Doctors letter or medical report
  • Psychologists report
  • Grades and teacher comments

The School’s Learning Support Specialists will review the submitted documents to ensure that we can provide the appropriate level of support, and the Admissions Office will convey to the family the decision of the Learning Support Specialists.

Please note that it is not in the student’s best interest to withhold information that would allow the school to make a determination as to whether the school can support the student’s learning and wellbeing. If, after admission, it is discovered that such information existed but was not provided, we must reserve the right to withdraw our offer of admission.

Starting the Application

The application process is completed entirely online. The process is a straightforward one, however if you require any assistance, the Admissions Team is here to help. Any potential applicant can register initial interest.
