Grade placement

The Stockholm International School year starts in mid August and ends in mid June. Students who apply from countries with a different school calendar generally continue in the grade in which they are currently enrolled. If these same applicants wish to begin in the middle of the school year, placement will be based on the grade they have most recently completed at their previous school.

Upon application, we use the following age guidelines to help us place students into the appropriate grade levels:
