Placement Policy
When families educate their children outside their home countries they very often ask the question What grade will my child be placed in? As you are aware students enrolled at Vienna International School come from over 100 different countries in the world and at the moment 73 different mother tongues are spoken amongst the 1400 students enrolled. Candidates for admission to our school will be placed by age and school history.

Once you have provided the Admissions Office with all the requested application documents the Admissions Coordinator will confirm the grade. If your child's current placement is different to the one our policy suggests, the VIS Placement Committee will meet to give their recommendation. This decision will be communicated to the parents via the Admissions Coordinator.
