In cases of concern, a student may be admitted on a conditional status. All classes are generally constructed in a heterogeneous fashion. Parental requests for specific teachers and or classes are not accepted.
Many students come to us from schools that utilize evaluation and placement systems different from Dervam. Because of this, it is imperative that a careful review of report is conducted in order to place students in the appropriate grades. The Head Teacher/Principal will provide initial screening with the Assistant Head Teacher / Vice Principal for each division making the final assessment.
The school retains the right to deny admission to any student dismissed from other schools or those who do not meet our admission requirement.
