Partnership with Aspire
Aspire International School sets high behavioral standards aligned with the MOE behavior policy. At any time, during the admission process, any child or parents displaying any behavior conflicting with the school’s set behavior standards, will lead to the discontinuation of admission process and the student will not be recruited.
Any specific learning difference will not affect the admission result from the school, no discrimination will be tolerated for any learning differences. On the other hand, any non-disclosure of known issues is considered a break of the admission policy honesty and will break the partnership between the parents and school. It will also raise difficulties in allowing the school to choose appropriate intervention as well as suitable teaching and behavior management strategies.
The school will have the right to discontinue any child’s enrollment to the school if known issues are not reported during the admission process. Maintaining a high level of honesty is in the benefit of the student, parents, and school community.
