English proficiency testing may be requested as part of the admissions process. Based on information provided, testing and meeting with our ESL teacher, English as a Second Language (ESL) students may be accepted in any grade as long as the number of ESL students does not exceed 6 or more than one-third of the class.
If it is determined that an English-language proficiency or academic placement test is required, a test date will be arranged only after the completed application is submitted.
The Anglo-American School of St. Petersburg cannot provide support services for children with special educational needs. The school strongly advises parents whose children require special needs to contact the Principal directly before applying for admission or accepting a posting to St. Petersburg.
Before we confirm a place at AAS-SP, the Principal and Educational Advisor look carefully at the school reports and other admission documentation. These documents help build a picture of your child for us.
Once enrolled at AAS-SP, teachers are able to build on that original picture as they observe students' academic and social development. From the admissions information and from continuing observation, our teachers are able to build challenging goals for each student.
Children who enroll at AAS-SP from schools with different school calendars (i.e. January to November vs. August to June) will be placed in the grade they are currently attending (if enrolled in the first Semester of the school year), or in the grade which he/she has just completed if enrolled in the second semester in AASSP.
Should candidates meet our admission requirements and we have space available, we generally place students in the grade which matches their age group. However, we consider background education and experiences. Please note that the final decision on grade placement is taken by the Principal.
All applicants are encouraged to contact the school well in advance of their relocation to St. Petersburg. Waiting lists for the current school year exist in most grades.
