GRADE PLACEMENT CHART AND CRITERIA

Karachi American School has a selective admissions policy. Students are admitted and placed according to standards established by the Admission’s Committee.

All applicants applying locally, age 6-18, complete a three-part admissions test: a standardized test measuring reading comprehension, and mathematical computational and problem solving skills. The applicant’s writing sample is measured against grade level norms at the Karachi American School. A review of grades at previous schools and letters of recommendation completes the process. All applicants are screened for developmental readiness & behavior. The screening takes place on site in the classroom and in the program they will attend.

Grade level placement is determined by the applicant’s age, educational background, in-house placement testing and evaluation, and by meeting the admissions criteria. Age appropriateness is determined by the applicant’s birthday falling on or before October 1st for Grades K4 to Gr.12, and August 1st for K3.
