The Development stage refers to grades 1 to 5, Middle School refers to grades 6 to 8, and High School refers to grades 9 to12.
3. What happens when students educated in another part of the world transfer to AIM?
We evaluate all prospective students to ensure they are working towards the grade above their current level. This is to ensure the education at their current school is in-line with AIM standards. The results of this initial evaluation will inform where the student is placed.
