Placement

Students at Vilnius International School come from a range of educational institutions and a review of their previous school experience is important to ensure that in-coming students are appropriately supported.

Early Childhood Programme

The early childhood programme at Vilnius International School begins in the Kangaroo class, to the Panda, Turtle and finally the Dolphin level. Each level of the early childhood programme builds upon and complements the previous one. The four levels of the early childhood programme is a sequence of developmental phases that are foundational in preparing students for first grade.

First Grade

Students typically enter first grade at VIS at the age of 7. There is some flexibility depending on the previous school experience, English language skills and overall level of maturity.

Transfer Students

Students entering Vilnius International School from an American, Lithuanian or other non-British affiliated international school will typically enter the same grade at VIS. Students entering Vilnius International School from a British school will be admitted to the class one grade lower. For example, an incoming 3rd grader from a British system would be placed in 2nd grade at VIS.

New to English

Candidates will be administered an English language assessment to determine the level of language support required for the student to be maximally successful at VIS. Students may enroll without prior knowledge English if there is availability in our English language support programme to meet their level of need.  

Students entering Grade 4-12 will be required to undergo additional assessments to determine whether their prior educational experience has appropriately prepared them to access the demands of the VIS curriculum. English language and learning support services are available, but our resources are limited.  An interview may also be requested as part of the standard admissions process.
