How does the application process work?

AISM aims to admit children who are able to excel with our academic curriculum, and who will enjoy the opportunities to extend themselves academically, physically and socially.

We enrol students throughout the year and so have no application deadlines. However, we encourage you to file an application as early as possible to secure a place for your child.
