Interview and evaluation
When you receive your appointment for the Admission process, please make sure to come to the school on the specific date and time. You will need to be available during the whole morning, starting at 8:00 a.m.
What does the Evaluation consist of?
All parents wishing to become members of the Gimnasio Fontana community must attend a group interview and then an individual interview. The school seeks to gain knowledge of the family values and philosophy and ensure that they are in line with our education project. This process will take place on the same day as the student’s evaluation.
At this level, the school seeks to identify essential aspects related to basic learning devices. The children are observed initially in a classroom setting where they have a chance to share with other students of the school during the morning.
This observation provides us with information about their potential integration with peers and teachers. After this observation, children work individually on tasks prepared from the perspective of Speech and Occupational therapy. The goal is to identify their language and motor strengths and skills.
Primary, Middle and High School
Although the school does not usually take students in these grades, there are occasions when there are places available, and possibilities to enroll new students may be opened depending on the results and the specific case.
In the event such a place is opened, the process consists of a test on the content pertaining to the grade, always including English. Besides the written test, a speech and occupational assessment is also performed in order to look deeper into the competencies of the applicant. Additionally, applicants must have an interview with the psychologist of the corresponding level.
