Entry level
 

This school year runs from 1st September until the end of June. Specific dates can be found in the school calendar. Children or students are initially placed in a Grade according to age, but English language ability, past schooling experience, test results and discussions with parents enable the school to determine the most appropriate Grade.

2017-2018 HD Beijing School offers the following Grade:
 

GRADE AGE
CASA 2.5-4
PREP 5
Year 1 6
Year 2 7
Year 3 8
Note on ages
 

In some cultures children are considered to be 1 on the day of their birth ie, at the beginning of their first year. In others they are not regarded as 1 until the end of their first year. Consequently in some cultures children might be regarded as being a year older than they would be in another culture.

In this guide to your child’s initial year level placement, it has been assumed that children turn 1 at the end of their 1st year, 2 at the end of their 2nd year, 3 at the end of their 3rd year etc.
