Step 2: Entrance Assessment and Observations

All applicants must participate in the interview and screening process.

The assessment reflects Finnish curriculum standards and is based on a holistic evaluation of the prospective pupil’s learning. The assessment allows us to understand each individual’s learning needs and personal qualities (academic ability, emotional and behavioral patterns).

Grade 1: First grader applicants will do a basic test of motor social skills and reading comprehension.

Grades 2 - 12: Second to twelfth grader applicants will be tested in reading, writing and spoken English as well as mathematical proficiency. For international pupils, the assessment is conducted in English. For Vietnamese pupils who apply for either international or bilingual programme, it is conducted in both Vietnamese and English. In Grades 6 - 10, applicants will be tested in a group interview in English, written English exam and mathematics. For the bilingual programme, students will be tested in science and Vietnamese as well. For international students, the assessment is conducted in English. For Vietnamese students who apply for either international or bilingual programmes, the assessment is conducted in both Vietnamese and English.

Step 3: Letter of Offer

If the applicant is qualified, the school will send an email to parents to announce the results and inform about the enrolment process within 5 -10 working days after the entrance assessment.

A Security Deposit Fee needs to be paid within 14 working days after the letter of offer is sent to guarantee a place for the student.
