Entry level
HD Shanghai Bilingual SCHOOL

This school year runs from 1st September until the end of June. Specific dates can be found in the school calendar. Children or students are initially placed in a Grade according to age, but English language ability, past schooling experience, test results and discussions with parents enable the school to determine the most appropriate Grade.

Note on ages
HD Shanghai Bilingual SCHOOL

In some cultures children are considered to be 1 on the day of their birth ie, at the beginning of their first year. In others they are not regarded as 1 until the end of their first year. Consequently in some cultures children might be regarded as being a year older than they would be in another culture.

In this guide to your child’s initial year level placement, it has been assumed that children turn 1 at the end of their 1st year, 2 at the end of their 2nd year, 3 at the end of their 3rd year etc.

Age on or before 1 September
