WITHDRAWING YOUR CHILD FROM AISS
While we are always sorry to see students move away, we understand that these transitions are a regular part of the International School experience. We are here to provide you with the resources and information you need to make a smooth transition to your new school.
Once you've decided on a new school, please intimate at least two weeks prior to your child's planned withdrawal date so that the school offices have the time necessary to prepare school records and leaving certificates.
School leaving certificates and student records are released to parents when a student withdraws from the school.
