Age Placement Guide

Age & Grade Placement

Uppsala International School

Our policy is to place students in their age-appropriate grade level. We also take into consideration a student’s previous school experience. This is done on a case by case basis looking at formal years of schooling rather than ability in subject areas.

- August 31st determines the student’s grade level.

- If there are questions about the correct grade-level placement, please contact us.

- Upon application, we use the following age guidelines to help us place students into the appropriate grade levels:
