Step 2: Interview and Assessment

Once we have received all the supporting documents and reviewed your child's application, you are invited to an interview and your child goes through an assessment session administered by the Admissions Office. For applications to Grades 4 and above, we will contact your child's former school and ask them to give us a confidential recommendation.
Please pay the non-refundable application fee of AED 500 (check or cash) when you come to the interview.


Step 3: Offer and Acceptance

If we admit your child to SISD, you will receive our offer letter within 5 working days. If you decide to accept our offer, payment of the AED 10'000 registration fee (deductible from 1st semester fee) is due within 7 days. Your child’s place is not guaranteed until the registration fee has been received.


In order to register your child with the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), we will also need a Transfer Certificate for Grade 2 and above before the start of the school year. Please follow the Guidelines and use the Transfer Certificate Sample.
