Admissions Policy

To fulfill the spirit of ASW’s vision and mission and to maintain an international mix of the student body, the Board of Trustees directs the administration to make all admissions decisions based on the goal that no single nationality (with the exception of US. passport holding applicants) exceeds 25% of the total student enrollment in each grade level.

a. Admissions decisions use, but are not limited to, the following criteria:

  • The ability of the school to meet the academic needs of the applicant and the ability of the applicant to function effectively in a rigorous academic environment.
  • The applicant’s level of English proficiency to ensure success in the short and long term.
  • The applicant’s ability to contribute to the school’s culture of internationalism.
  • The applicant’s ability or non-ability to have their educational needs met in a local school.
  • The applicant’s ability to contribute to the community of the school.
b. Subject to the above criteria being met, applicants will be admitted to the American School of Warsaw in the following order of priority:

  • Firstly, dependents of U.S. Government direct-hire and contract employees, dependents of overseas hire faculty and dependents of locally-hired faculty.
  • Secondly, U.S. Passport holders where both the applicant and a minimum one parent holds a U.S. Passport.
  • Thirdly, applicants with a sibling already enrolled in the school.

c. As spaces become available, administration will use the above criteria to determine admission decisions.

d. The Director will be the final authority on all matters of admission in consultation with professional staff.

e. Continuing enrollment.

Re-enrollment and continued enrollment at ASW is determined by the professional staff based on the following criteria:

  • The ability of the school to meet the educational needs of the continuing student.
  • The ability of the continuing student to meet the attendance and behavioral expectations of the school.
  • The fulfillment by the applicant or continuing student of the school’s medical requirements.
