New Life International School welcomes inquiries from all interested students year around. Please feel free to contact the school office for an application pack. We encourage parents and children to come and observe our classes anytime.
Kindergarten and 1st grade children may enter with zero English skills.
2nd grade: Twenty percent (20%) of 2nd grade students may enter who do not have English skills, but they must take extra English classes.
3rd grade and up: All must be able to read, write, and speak English. They may be 2 grades lower in ability. Thus, a 3rd grader who has 1st grade English ability may enter 3rd grade. They must also take extra English classes.
All students must have a 20 to 30 minute interview and test which will be scheduled as soon as the admissions process begins. Students answer questions orally, read, write and do math in this interview.
To keep clothes competition down and to help us feel unified, students wear a simple uniform: white, tan, black, gray or navy tops and bottoms. The tops can be any material, long or short sleeve. They must be solid color. Girls can wear same color dresses. Sweaters and jackets that are worn in the classroom should be the same colors. Junior high students may wear red tops. All students may wear jewelry and different colored socks and shoes. Friday is “free day”. On this day, the children and teachers wear anything they like. We also wear a badge every day. Please see below for the example of uniforms and badges.
