School year 2020-2021

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Ljubljana International School and our diverse international community. The school enrollment process can be frustrating and confusing, so we want to make it easier for you and take you step by step through the process to enroll your child(ren) to LIS. This checklist is to help you with each step.

Step 1: Visit us:

There is nothing like seeing and experiencing our school in person. Arrange a meeting with our Director and take a tour of our Campus. If you are unsure whether LIS is the right fit for your child, we encourage you to let your child join our classes for a day or two and experience firsthand what we offer.

Step 2: Application – must be accompanied with non-refundable registration fee of EUR 350.

As part of the application process the following form (Complete Application form) needs to be filled out or if you are filling out our applications online you will find four forms:

Additional documents we need from you:

  • Copy of passport or ID with a photo
  • Copy of vaccination records
  • Copy of previous school records and recommendation for previous year (ages 5 – 11)
  • Copy of previous 3 school years and recommendation for past three years (ages 12 and up)

Once the application is complete, we can schedule the student for an interview/assessment.

Step 3: Assessment

After all application forms and previous school records are obtained, our school director will review them, we may  arrange for your child to be assessed with a MAP test in Mathematics, English (reading, writing and comprehension) before enrollment. The test is conducted at our school and it takes about one to two hours. Based on the results a suggestion is made as to what grade level to place the child. We do not require English fluency; however the older the student, more proficiency in English is required. For younger students (up to age 10) fluency in English is more easily gained within a classroom. For older students (ages 11 and older), in addition to their previous academic results, acceptance of students will also depend on their English proficiency. If a child does not pass a basic English test, they can enroll in our school with a one year Intensive English (IE) program with the possibility to complete some units.

Step 4: Acceptance and Additional Documents

After reviewing the academic records and the results of the placement MAP test you will receive the following forms if your child is accepted to our school:

  • Acceptance Form-Contract and
  • Payment of Fees Form.


However, if we deem that we cannot provide the learning resources that your child needs, we will let you know our concerns.  

Once these forms are received and signed you will receive Proof of Enrollment Letter and counter signed Acceptance form-Contract. Now your child has a place in Ljubljana International School.
