Classes at our Siem Reap Campus
Year group allocation
Children are grouped chronologically with all children placed in a class amongst others born within the same academic year, August 1 through July 31. Special consideration may be given to children born either two weeks before, or four weeks after, the 1st of August, and for children for whom there is a professional statement of special educational needs. The child’s age refers to the Western measurement of ages, i.e. how many years the child has been alive.
The delineation of classes does not reflect the system in any one particular country, as Hope is an international school, catering for many children from different backgrounds. It has been established however with consideration of portability to and from home country systems.
Students are not expected to pass the year before advancing; they move grades each August.
