The Assessment takes place with the school by appointment, although in some circumstances it may be possible for the assessment to be sat in a family’s country of residence where that is outside of Thailand. The Admissions team will be happy to advise you.
In most cases, the assessment is as follows:
Early Years and Year 1-2
Applicants will be assessed using a play-based interview. During this time, the applicant is assessed in the areas of fine motor skills, language use, development, social skills, ability to follow instructions, and general program readiness. Year 1 and2 applicants will be asked to submit their previous academic year report card, which helps demonstrate class experiences.
Students are initially screened with a computer-based WIDA test for English placement that covers speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. A MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessment will be used to determine the student’s maths skills. Thai language skills are also assessed through verbal exchange and reading and writing tests. All families are interviewed by Principal to make sure the child will benefit from a consistent approach to education at school and at home.
Year Group Placement
Year group placement is determined by the age of the applicant, previous school year reports and how a child fairs in his or her assessment. Our individualised learning approach and the use of the International Primary and Middle Years Curriculum allows our teachers to meet their students’ individual needs based on both their age and stage of learning. Therefore, it is rare that we place a child outside of their age group.
A decision on acceptance and placement will be based on many factors including school reports and the pre-entrance assessment. This will often be communicated the same day as the assessment, but in certain circumstances it could take a maximum of 5 working days.
An offer will be given personally or in writing and once accepted our admissions team will check all required documents have been submitted. You will receive a follow-up email that will provide you with invoices for tuition fee payment and its deadline. Payment must be made within the due date to secure your child’s place. After payment has been completed, a foreign family is welcome to consult the admissions team regarding your visa plan.
Panyaden International School offers education for children aged 2yrs-13yrs.
Students applying to Nursery must be 2 years old by August 15th of the enrolment year. We do not make exceptions to the birthday cut-off date for Early Years.
