New Students enrolled into Pre-School and Kindergarten are based on age criteria.
Older Students are assessed to determine their current proficiency levels in Gurumukhi, and Gurmat. Khalsa School accepts diploma/certificates from other Khalsa schools wherever applicable. Fremont Khalsa School Curriculum is being widely adopted by other Khalsa Schools throughout the country. As part of admission process, child’s proficiency is discussed with the student and the parents/guardians on the child’s background exposure, and educational experience. Gurmat class assignment is done based on this initial interview between the child and the Khalsa School Gurmat Head Coordinator. This is followed by an interview with Gurmat teacher. The teacher may give an admission placement test to determine the student’s level. Based on the results of the interview and or the placement test, an objective assessment of the student’s capabilities is made and the teacher makes a recommendation.
For Gurmukhi Class assignment, all new Students are put in Bridge class where the teachers assess the Student proficiency over a period of three weeks. At the end of the third week, the student is assigned a Gurmukhi Level or s/he is retained the Bridge class.
Continuing Student Admission:
Class assignments for existing students are done based on the prior year test scores and Teacher’s assessment on both Gurmat and Gurmukhi subjects. The Scores are generally stack ranked and Students who need additional assistance and guidance on Gurmukhi are encouraged to repeat the same level. The results are assessed on standard bell curves for each subject
