Waiting list

Not usually, however as Johannesburg continues to define its position as a leading regional center, and AISJ continues to develop as the predominant international school, waiting lists are becoming more of a norm. That said, a waiting list would be comprised of several rather than hundreds of students. Due to the transient nature of AISJ families there is always a strong chance that a place will become available but obviously, it is not guaranteed.

Entry evaluation for students

AISJ is an inclusive school. It does not have an entry test, however, AISJ does ask those students who are applying for grades 9-12 that are from non-English speaking backgrounds to sit an English proficiency test.
