All applicants should provide the school with their latest contact information to ensure that they can be reached for any updates.
Students whose mother tongue is not English
Students enrolling in Rafflesia International School will have to sit for a placement test to gauge the level of their English and other competencies. Students who do not meet the required level of English competency may still be accepted at the discretion of the School Principal. These students will be given English language support to improve their level of English competency.
Parents may send in their applications in advance and the names of the students will be placed in our waiting list until the school is able to confirm the availability of places for the intended intake.
