Know the Grades

Age Requirements

AISD closely follows an age/grade policy and places students in the appropriate grade level according to their age and ability. AISD reviews the placement of each child individually and believes children are best served when placed in their respective aged peer groups and with this in mind, the school reserves the right to make the final placement decision.

Below is a simple guide to help you know which grade your child would most likely be placed in if they were to study at AISD.
