STEP 2: INTERVIEW AND SCREENING

A. Lower School Applicants

All lower school applicants are required to participate in an individual or group screening. In addition, parents will meet with a counselor as part of the admission process. English language screening may occur as part of the interview and screening process for KA to grade 2.

Applicants in grades 3 to 5 who need English language screening will be invited to an English-language screening either individually or in a group.

Lower school applicants applying from overseas may be pre-accepted, but the final admissions decision and grade placement are made in Taipei only after screening for special needs, EAL, and/or readiness for kindergarten.

B. Middle or Upper School Applicants

Interviews are not required for middle and upper school applicants. Applicants who need English language screening will be invited to take the Independent School Entrance Exam (ISEE) at Taipei American School or at other designated test centers listed on www.iseetest.org. Please refer to Standardized Testing Requirements and Registration Instructions for ISEE.

The school reserves the right to rescind acceptance to any student whose initial screening scores are significantly superior to the student's subsequent performance.

The school reserves the right to request additional diagnostic testing or a full evaluation before a decision is made for any student KA through grade 12.

STEP 3: EVALUATION OF COMPLETED APPLICATION

Completed applications are sent to the appropriate divisional admissions committee for review. Admission decisions are based on a careful assessment of school records, English language proficiency, and the school's ability to meet the student's needs within the existing programs.

TAS reserves the right to request additional diagnostic testing or a full evaluation before a decision is made for any students KA through grade 12. Decisions may be 1) acceptance, 2) place on the waiting list, or 3) denial.

STEP 4: ADMISSION DECISIONS

A. Acceptance

If an applicant is qualified and space is available, a formal letter of acceptance will be sent that will provide information for registration and enrollment. Each year a few students are conditionally accepted.

B. Waiting Status

Qualified applicants are placed in a waiting status when there is no space available in the selected grade. Every effort will be made to inform the candidate's family about space availability so that the family can plan appropriately. Given the school's admission priority system, a student's waiting status may change if there are subsequent applications from families with higher priority.

Any students with an application on a waiting status in late March will need to reapply for the upcoming school year.

C. Denial

Students can be denied admission on the basis of their academic record, behavioral record, or their English language proficiency. Students can also be denied admission when TAS lacks a program to meet their individual needs.

In some cases, denied candidates may reapply if the reason for the denial has been addressed, but they must wait at least one full academic year.

STEP 5: SUBMISSION OF FINAL DOCUMENTS FOR ACCEPTED APPLICANTS

Enrollment is finalized after completion and submission of the following:
A. Completion of the 6-Step Online Registration
