Dalian American International School

English Language Learning Admissions

All applicants will be assessed to determine their level of English and mathematics proficiency. The admissions assessment consists of four parts:

Oral Language

Written Language

Reading Comprehension


The assessment results will provide the school with information necessary to design appropriate English language instruction if appropriate. All application forms and supporting documents must be submitted to the Admissions Office, as well as the payment of the application fee, before admissions testing will be scheduled.

Students entering Pre-kindergarten through Grade 1 may be admitted if they meet other entrance requirements but only have a beginning level of English. Due to the academic work being more difficult at upper levels, students applying to Grades 2-7 will be required to have a higher level of English proficiency. Students in Grades 8-12 must be proficient in English.
