Application Process

We are delighted that you are considering The International School of Moscow (ISM) for your child. We are open for admissions all year round and are always happy to welcome new families to our community.

To learn more about joining us, we invite you to read our stage-by-stage guide to our application process below. As soon as you are ready to apply, we look forward to receiving your application via our Application Form.

Stage 1: Getting to know our school

We are always happy to speak with new families and will be delighted to answer any questions you may have about the opportunities for your child at ISM.

The first step is to complete our Enquiry Form to register your interest. Once this is received, one of our admissions officers will be in touch to discuss your child’s admission to our fantastic school. We offer meetings both in-person and in a virtual format.

You might also like to join one of our upcoming Virtual Open Days to learn more about what makes ISM the right choice for your child’s education.

Of course, we know you may have questions that you’d like to discuss, so we invite you to contact us at admissions@internationalschool.ru or:

Krylatskoe campus (3-18 years old): +7 (499) 922 44 00

Rosinka campus (2-11 years old): +7 (499) 922 44 05

Stage 2: Completing our online application form

The next step is to complete our online Application Form. When this is received, we can proceed with the various steps for admission, including:

  • Provision of current school reports
  • Confirming that we can contact your child’s current school for standard transfer documents
  • Attaching passport and visa copies (and/or registration stamp information for local applicants)

Once done, a member of the team will be in touch to help collect any additional information and process our application fee. You can find complete information on our school fees online here.

We strongly encourage you to contact our Admissions team prior to applying to confirm place availability at the campus of your choice.

Stage 3: The assessment process

After completing document provision and the payment of our application fee, we move to the assessment stage. This stage consists of on-campus or remote assessment for your child, which can include:

  • Online cognitive abilities test,
  • Subject-specific test
  • Interview with the relevant Head of Campus
Stage 4: Offering and accepting your place

Once our application and assessment stages are complete, we can typically provide an offer of placement either in-class or on our waiting list. Parents are asked to accept this place within ten days of receipt. 

To confirm your child’s place, we then require the transfer of our enrolment fee. You can find full information on our school fees online here.

After receipt of your child’s enrolment fee, we will confirm placement in writing and help move to the final stage – your child’s first day!

Stage 5: Preparing for your child’s first day

Every family is welcomed personally onto campus and we ensure your child is taken care of from the moment they join us. Our teaching staff and senior leadership will be on hand to help guide your child to their classroom and introduce them to their new teachers.

Prior to your child’s start to school, our Admissions team will provide helpful information to make passes (car & entry) for your family. Our team can also put you in touch with our Bus Coordinator to organise bus transport to school for your child. You can learn more about our school bus service here.

Stage 6: A happy family at ISM

We are always on hand to support you and your child before, during, and even after their time at ISM. If you have any questions at all, a member of our Admissions team will be happy to help. 

All that’s left to say is that we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family to our fantastic school. See you soon at ISM!
