Students may be considered for enrollment at ISB only after their application is complete. The following procedures are used to process the applications of prospective students:

Step One: Parent(s)/Guardian(s) indicate interest in enrolling their student at ISB by submitting an Application for Admission and Parent/Guardian Information forms from the application packet (one form per student).

Step Two: The application is reviewed in light of: available seats, nationality caps, and the school’s ability to provide adequate EAL (English as an Additional Language) and/or Learning Support. If any of these factors pose evident concern, the student will be offered a spot on our waitlist or denied admission. In all other cases, the application moves to step three.

Step Three: The non-refundable application fee must be paid. The application moves to step four.

Step Four: The remainder of the application documents are submitted. These include:

  • Medical Form and Physical Examination Form with doctor’s signature and stamp
  • School records, officially translated into English, and official transcripts from previous schools, for the past three academic years (both the original and a copy officially translated into English, if in another language).
  • Growth and Development Form (Grades Pre K-5)
  • EAL/Language History Form (for non-native English speakers)
  • Student Record Request Form
  • Student Reference Form (K-Grade 12)
  • Math Teacher Recommendation Form (Grades 6-12)
  • Acknowledgement of Risk/Insurance Statement
  • World Language Questionnaire (Grades 1-12)
  • Agreements Form
  • Transportation Form
  • Financial Responsibility Declaration
  • Photocopy of the student’s Birth Certificate or Passport
  • One photograph of applicant (passport size)

Step Five: Once the student is in Belgrade, a placement examination is administered. It takes between three and five school days from the completion of the placement examination until a student matriculates.

Step Six: The completed file is reviewed by the school. If the school has additional questions or concerns about a student, the family will be contacted to provide additional information and/or denied admission. In such cases, a review team will be formed with appropriate personnel, which may include the divisional principal, counselor, and teacher(s). DP students in grades 11 and 12 meet with the Diploma Coordinator.

Step Seven: Once the application is complete, an admissions decision is made.

Step Eight: The non-refundable registration fee and the non-refundable capital fee, along with the tuition fee for the admitted student must be paid.
