Teachers, the careers adviser and the school counsellor decide when a student is ready to transfer to mainstream high school by assessing the student's length of stay at CSIEHS, performance in class, level of English, self-esteem and confidence.
Before students transfer to their next high schools they visit their future high schools for a week of school experience. This is arranged by a special school placement officer at CSIEHS. During high school experience week students have the opportunity to learn about their new school and the subjects they will study and meet some of the students and teachers.
A 'buddy' or support student, usually of the same nationality, helps the student to settle in to the new school. Teachers from CSIEHS often accompany students to their new high schools to support them and help solve any problems. The school experience program is very important for the successful transfer of our students to high school.
