St. Louis Language Immersion Schools (SLLIS)

Enrollment Policy

Revised Enrollment Policy. Passed by the Board of Directors, November 2013.

In accordance with Missouri Revised Statute 160.410.3, SLLIS restricts the enrollment of new students to specific grade levels. SLLIS elementary schools will only accept new student applications for kindergarten or first grade. New applicants to SLLIS elementary schools are welcome in grades 2-5 for students who have attended a school during the last calendar year in which 50% or more of instruction is conducted in the target language of the school of application. Students in grades 2-5 who do not meet this standard are not eligible to apply to a SLLIS elementary school.

New applicants to The International School who have attended a school during the last calendar year in which 30% or more of instruction is conducted in the target language are eligible to apply for grades 7-8.

The enrollment application for The International School will require that students and their parents participate in and provide their observations of a full preview day of immersion instruction.

Former SLLIS students are eligible to apply for re-enrollment at any grade level at the SLLIS school in which they were enrolled during the previous school year.
