Learning Support students succeed in the regular classroom through close collaboration between learning support staff and classroom teachers.

MEETING WITH SCHOOL MANAGER & REGISTRATION PROCEDURE

A member of our Admissions team will arrange for you to meet the School Manager (or a designate) who will review your child’s test results and grade-level placement. If your child is accepted, you will receive an acceptance letter, a registration package, an invoice, and other documents necessary for enrollment. Your child should not withdraw from his or her current school until enrollment at RIS has been confirmed. To complete enrollment at RIS, your child must complete the registration process and the school fees must be paid by the due date on the invoice.

Please note : When seats are limited, students may be placed on a waiting list. A place on the waiting list does not guarantee placement at RIS.
