AGE CUT-OFF

 

All Taaleem schools place students in age-appropriate grade levels in accordance with the Ministry of Education/KHDA regulations.

Families are encouraged to use the chart below to ensure that they are applying to the correct grade level, taking into account the differences that exist in the naming of grades or years around the world. (As an example, Year 2 in the British Curriculum is equivalent to Grade 1 in the American curriculum at Al-Mizhar American Academy, although both programs are for 6-year-olds who turn 7 during the school year).
