International Grade Equivalents

Understanding Year Level & Grade Equivalents

Students joining Lighthouse from other schools are placed in year levels based on their ages and current year/grade levels. While age and academic performance do not always have a strong correlation, we believe it is important that children have the opportunity to interact with peers their own age. This social and emotional development plays an important role in their learning and helps them flourish independent of their academic ability. Only in exceptional cases will students be placed in year levels outside of their age range.
