If your child is moving to our school from any other non-ITA-affiliated Tamil school, your child will be evaluated before the school session starts per the official ITA evaluation. All other new students aged 6 years and above will be evaluated for their Tamil skill before the school session starts. Based on the results of the evaluation, your child will be placed in the appropriate grade. The evaluation will be a short test based on ITA evaluation guidelines. For further details click here.
