Application Process

Choosing a school is not an easy task. You are searching for the very best, and a large part of your child’s future is resting on your decision.

While we hope that our website and materials are informative, we recognise that there is no substitute for a campus visit. A tour of our campus allows the opportunity to truly sample the joy of our students’ experience, the friendliness of our community, and the warmth of our school’s atmosphere.

We warmly invite prospective parents, guardians and applicants to visit our school. Our tours are scheduled on an individual basis, and include information about the school and the application process.

When considering applicants, we take into account factors which include personal and social development, educational history and milestones, academic profile and English language proficiency to determine if applicants will benefit from their learning experience at ISS International School.

We accept applications throughout the year and practise rolling enrolment to accommodate expatriate families who relocate at various times. Applications for the current year are still open, subject to space availability. We look forward to hearing from you, and it would be our pleasure to share with you more about realising potential at ISS International School.

In the Middle School, non-native speakers of English will sit for an English placement assessment so that the school can gather information about their English level.

In the High School, ALL students will sit for 2 placement assessments – English & Mathematics.

Places in ISS are awarded based on whether the school can meet the student’s learning needs.

Information and documents submitted via OpenApply are reviewed by the academic heads. Request for additional information or reports may take place during this stage. As and when the need arises, an interview with the applicant may be required.

From the receipt of all documents, the review typically takes 3-5 working days.

If admission is granted, the parent(s) / guardian(s) will be extended an Offer of Placement via email.

The applicant’s placement in ISS is confirmed by the payment of the enrolment fee, and an invoice will be issued to the payer. Invoices for school fees will follow suit upon receipt of the enrolment fee.

Before students begin at ISS International School, parent(s) / guardian(s) will receive additional information regarding New Student Orientation, uniforms, bus services, hot lunches from the canteen, extra-curricular activities, and so on.

ISS is required to execute a contract with every student prior to being enrolled in the school. Please refer to the examples included here. For any further enquiries, please contact admissions@iss.edu.sg.
