Procedures

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Ljubljana International School (LIS) and our diverse international school community. A school enrollment process can sometimes be frustrating and confusing, so we want to make it as easy for you as possible by taking you step by step through the process to enroll your child or children at LIS. This checklist was developed to assist you with each step.

The Application Steps

Step 1

Visit us

There is nothing like seeing and experiencing our school campuses in person. If possible, feel free to arrange a meeting with our school administration and take a tour of our facilities. If you are unsure whether LIS is the right fit for your child, we encourage you to have your child join our classes for a day or two and experience firsthand what we offer.

A virtual visit may be arranged if circumstances warrant such an approach.

Step 2

Application

The application form must be accompanied with a non-refundable registration fee of 450 EUR. As part of the application process, the following form (please click here to access the application form) needs to be filled out or we encourage you to fill out our application form online. Once the initial application form is received by our office personnel, along with the corresponding registration fee, you will be contacted to fill out additional forms related to the student’s health and emergency contact information.

Student application form

Emergency and health form

Lunch cancelation form
Additional documents that will be requested from you include:

  • Copy of passport or ID with a photo;
  • Copy of vaccination records;
  • Copy of previous school records and recommendation from the 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’s administrative team will review the documents, we may arrange for your child to be assessed with a placement test in Mathematics, English (reading, writing and comprehension) before enrolment. The test used is NWEA’s Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) is conducted at our school and it takes between one and two hours to complete. For more information on MAP testing, please visit the NWEA website here. Based on the initial Map test results, a suggestion will be formulated made as to what grade level the child should be placed.

LIS does not require English fluency to enrol; however the older the student is, the more proficiency in English is required. For younger students (up to age 12) fluency in English is more easily gained within a classroom environment. For older students (ages 12 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 enrol in our school with a one-year English as an Additional Language (EAL) course which provides Intensive English (IE) instruction to enhance their English language proficiency skills, and with the possibility to complete some academic units.

Step 4

Acceptance

and Additional Documents

After reviewing the academic records and the results of the placement MAP test, you shall:

A) receive confirmation that your child has been accepted to LIS. At this time you will receive the acceptance form and Payment of Fees form to fill out.

or

B) receive an explanation as to why your child has unfortunately not been accepted to LIS. There may be situations when we cannot provide the learning resources that your child needs, should there be specific special needs that your child has.
