Placement Assessments

AHIS admits students based on policies and regulating processes set by the school and MOE in Bahrain. Our placement assessments are designed to determine a student’s readiness for the AHIS program. Our assessments are conducted in English, however, students who are non-speakers or new to the language are assessed at the beginning of the academic year and placed at the proper academic level. Parents are encouraged to make sure that their child is well-rested and fed prior to the session as being tired or stressed or hungry can negatively affect their assessment.

The assessment process differs by grade level as indicated below:

Students are invited for an observational/practical assessment to determine school readiness. The sessions are generally conducted in small groups whenever possible, one-on-one as required, and last approximately 30 minutes. Students in the early childhood program must be potty trained.

Grade 1–5
Assessments are conducted on a one-to-one basis, encompass literacy and numeracy skills and last approximately one hour.

Grade 6–12
Assessments are conducted in an exam-type environment in which students work on their own through a standardized test that encompasses literacy and numeracy skills. The assessment can last up to two hours.

Withdrawal Policy
