Q 9. How does class placement work?

Returnees, in general, move up to the next level.

For instance, Class 5 in 2022 Spring → Class 6 in 2022 Fall

- Exceptions may apply to those who didn’t complete the whole year’s course(Fall + Spring) at AKS, and whether to be moved up or to stay at the current level will be decided by the class teacher and the supervisors, and after consulting with parents. 

- Parents may appeal to the school on the class placement. We may reconsider the decision after having a parent and teacher conference and additional evaluation session.

- A newly enrolled student will have a level test (online or in-person) before the semester starts and be placed according to the result.

Setting guidelines accordingly is one of those preventive measures that we can take. As mentioned in #2, it will be based upon the situation on Aug.1 2022.


Q 12. What are students expected to bring to school?

             Students are to bring to each class their textbooks, notebook(s), and encouraged to bring other basic school supplies of their own to minimize mixing/sharing items. The supply list will be sent out (email) by the class teachers at the beginning of the semester.
