It is recommended to call the school and arrange a scheduled appointment if you desire to meet with the Admissions Staff for any reason.
Tours are provided for families, although you are asked to make an appointment in advance whenever possible. Please report to the Main School Office.
The International School Eastern Seaboard is primarily a college-preparatory institution. Only students who intend to seek admission to a college or university will be accepted. Students with exceptionalities will be admitted based upon the school’s ability to meet their educational needs.
Applicants are admitted and retained on the basis of their ability
to meet the academic and behavioral expectations of the school.
The Admissions Staff makes decisions in the best interest of the applicant, as well as in the interest of the specific grade level.
The right is reserved to refuse admission to any applicant who does not meet the admissions requirements. The right is also reserved to determine the placement of an accepted applicant in the grade level or subjects deemed most appropriate for the student’s success.
The Admissions Staff evaluates the following when considering an applicant for admission:
• Entrance test results.
• Academic records from a current or most recent school.
• Evaluations from a current or most recent school.
• English language proficiency. English as a Second Language (ESL) support is only available in grades 1-9. Applicants requiring ESL support in grades 10-12 will not normally be accepted.
• Presence of any learning differences, special needs, or giftedness.
• Screening with the applicant and parent/s
In accordance with its commitment to being a family school, special consideration is given to qualified siblings of currently enrolled students. Despite this consideration, there is, however, no guarantee of admission.
Entrance tests and interviews are scheduled individually throughout the year by appointment. The entrance tests are administered to all applicants in Pre-Kindergarten and above, including former ISE students returning after one or more years of absence from ISE.
Admission Decision Possibilities
Accepted: An applicant is approved for admission.
Denied: An applicant is not approved for admission. The Admissions Staff is not able to predict success for the applicant at ISE, either academically or behaviorally. A mandatory three-month waiting period is required before a second application.
The Admissions Staff will keep the original application materials. New academic records, confidential evaluation forms, and entrance tests are usually required for the second application.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Grades 11 and 12
IB is an internationally recognized and externally examined diploma program. It consists of two-year courses spread over grades 11 and 12. As a result, it is rare to accept a new student onto the IB Diploma program in grade 12. If a course schedule can be made guaranteeing the student will meet graduation requirements, the student must begin school within the first quarter of grade 12.
Students are required to live with at least one parent or legal guardian while enrolled at ISE. This policy is enforced beginning on the date an applicant is scheduled for entrance tests and interviews.
All applicants must complete the admission process as outlined below.
Step One - Submit the required ISE documents to the main ISE office.
Step Two - Set a date with the (admissions) secretary for entrance tests and an interview for the applicant.
Step Three - On the scheduled test date, it is essential to arrive on time. An Interview with the parents will follow the entrance test. A decision on acceptance, grade placement and date to start classes will be made.
Step Four - When a student is accepted, a place is offered in a specific grade level. Acceptance should be conformed by the family.
Step Five - See ISE Business office personnel regarding payment of fees.
Step Six - See ISE bookstore for uniform and student supplies.

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)
All ESL students must have demonstrated an ability to function at grade level in a language other than English.
All students having a parent who is not a native English speaker must be evaluated for ESL services before a recommendation for admission is made.
Beginning ESL students are not eligible for enrollment in the ISE High School Program. ESL students applying for High School admission must demonstrate a minimum standard of English language proficiency on the entrance examination as determined by the ESL staff and the school administration. Students at more advanced levels may be admitted at any time if they can be accommodated in an existing ESL program.
Acceptance of ESL students will be conditional for the first semester. At the end of one semester the ESL staff will determine whether or not a student has demonstrated a reasonable rate of language progress and has the motivation necessary to acquire English proficiency. After this determination is made, the student will:
1. Be accepted for clear enrollment, or
2. Continue to be enrolled on a conditional basis.
If a student's ESL progress is marginal over two semesters, it will be necessary to refer the student to the counselor for further evaluation, possibly resulting in a probationary enrollment status for the following semester. After the probationary period, a decision will be made by the administration, in collaboration with the teaching staff, concerning the student's continued enrollment in the school.
First Grade students may be placed in the ESL program in the first or second semester upon teacher recommendation, if services are available.
There is an additional fee for enrollment in the ESL program.
