Requirements per School Level

Pre-K and Kindergarten

Little ones are always welcome at the Canadian School of Florence, subject to availability.
Some exposure to English prior to coming to school can definitely help your child to settle more easily in to a new environment, but is not a necessary requirement to be accepted. Our experienced teaching staff will help your child to get up to speed with the rest of his or her class in a smooth and entertaining way.

Elementary School (Grade 1-5)

In order to enter the Elementary School classes at the Canadian School of Florence, children need a minimum level of English knowledge, which is assessed through an informal interview with one of our teachers.
Exceptions may be made based on the actual composition of the single classes and on the individual family's availability to support children in filling in any existing gap.

Middle School (Grade 6-8)

To be admitted to the Middle School at the Canadian School of Florence, students need a minimum level of spoken and written English, corresponding to a B1 in the CEFRL (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
The language knowledge will be assessed through an interview with one of our teachers, and exceptions may be made based on the actual composition of the single classes, and on the individual family's availability to support children in filling in any existing gap.

High School (Grade 9-12)

To be admitted to the High School at the Canadian School of Florence, we require a copy of students' final report cards. In order to progress the application, it is important that students are capable of accessing all the classes available, when they join.  For this reason, we expect students to have an intermediate level of English, corresponding to a B2 in the CEFRL (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), and an acceptable level of mathematics allowing students to access both Math, Science and Business classes.  For this reason, should a report reflect a weakness in Math, we will expect students to complete an inhouse assessment and pass it, as part of the admission process.
