Students are eligible for admission if it is believed that JIS can meet their emotional, social, physical and academic needs. JIS can offer places at each grade level to a limited number of students who require support services. Areas of support include: speech and language services (elementary only), academic support, classroom guidance and individual counseling.
Admission is contingent upon a match between the student’s needs and the level of services available.
For that reason, the admission of any student with identified needs (language or learning) is determined on a case-by-case basis using multiple sources of information, such as school records, evaluations, Individual Learning Plans and in some cases an interview.
Parents who have any reason to believe that the above policy would affect their child's eligibility for admission should arrange for a comprehensive physical, academic, and psychological evaluation prior to making an application.
