Thank you for your interest in El Alsson School

Below are the steps in the admissions process for our school:

  • Fill an application form either online or from the reception in the main administration building when you visit the school.
  • Once completed, submit it to the registrar’s office (to Mrs. Gehan Rashwan or Mrs. Hala Shoeb) along with 4 passport size photos of your child, a copy of the birth certificate (new version with national number on it), the most recent report from his/her nursery or current school, and copies of parents’ IDs or passports.
  • After your application has been processed you will be contacted by the registrar’s office with an assessment date and time for your child. Please note that an invitation for assessment does not guarantee a place and children may be put on a waiting list until a place becomes available. (Assessments for Early Years or Early Childhood: Your child’s is assessed by members of the EY/EC staff in terms of their stage of development in relation to their chronological age).
  • Older students are tested individually to assess their academic level through American MAP tests or British GL tests. The tests are done on-line, in school. There is also an oral assessment.  If the tests are satisfactory you will receive a call from the school, inviting you to the last step of the process which is in an interview with the School Director(s). Punctuality for the assessment and interview is highly appreciated, please be on time.
  • Once your child has been awarded a place in the school, you will be asked to come and complete the registration within 5 working days. When the required payments have been received you are on board and have joined the El Alsson family.

We look forward to our future partnership in line with our vision:

“Developing Successful 21st Century Citizens”.
