Al Madinah Private School enrolls students from diverse backgrounds and creates a vibrant, joyful and engaging learning environment in which they excel academically, intellectually and socially. In order to provide a high quality education and social environment for our students, we gather information and seek to understand our applicants holistically to determine if Al Madinah Private School is a good match for them.
For applicants to Foundation Stage 1 and 2 and Key Stage 1, we hold play and activity sessions during which we assess applicants’ developmental readiness for our programs. For applicants to Year 2, we include a basic assessment of pre-academic skills.
Applicants to Key Stage 2 and above take our admission assessments, which are designed to assess academic readiness for the grade to which the applicant is applying. In addition to the academic assessments, the applicant spends the remainder of the day visiting the school and attending classes with his/her peers. The visit helps us assess an applicant’s social readiness and “fit” for our school. For all applicants who have attended school prior to applying to Al Madinah Private School, teacher recommendation forms and progress reports for the previous two years, if applicable, are required.
