Learning Support (LS) Students:  The RIS Learning Support Program is based on the reality that students vary in their ability, achievement, motivation, interest, and that individuals learn best with programs that provide challenges in a supportive and stimulating environment. The program is designed to help all students develop the skills to access the general school curriculum. Individual student needs are met in the regular classroom with support provided in the form of Special Needs teachers and subject teachers working collaboratively. Those without current (within the previous 12 months) psychological testing results will need to undergo a psychological or educational evaluation by the RIS psychologist.

 

Step 3. Meeting with School Director & Registration Procedure


Admissions Office will arrange a meeting with the School Director or designate who will review testing results and placement. If the student is accepted, an acceptance letter, registration package, invoice, and other documents required for enrollment will be given.

When available seats are limited, students may be placed on a waiting list. Students should not withdraw from their current school until enrollment at RIS is confirmed. Placement on the waiting list does not guarantee placement at RIS. Students who wish to enroll at RIS must complete the registration procedure and the payment of school fees by the due date stated on the invoice. If students miss the deadline, students must notify Admissions Officer for late enrollment procedure and pay a late fee.
