Age Cut-Off Date

 

 All Taaleem schools place students in age-appropriate Grade levels in accordance with the Ministry of Education/KHDA/ADEC regulations.

Families are encouraged to use the chart below to ensure that they are applying to the correct Grade/Year level, taking into account the differences that exist in the naming of Grades or Years around the world (as an example, Year 2 in British Curriculum is equivalent to Grade 1 in the IB curriculum at Greenfield Community School although both programmes are for 6 year olds who turn 7 during the school year).
