HTA is an inclusive school. When interviewing prospective students, it is important for us to make sure that:
  • The child will be able to reach their full potential by studying at HTA;
  • The school has the necessary resources to support the student;
  • Both parents and the child share philosophy, mission, vision and values of the school.
Preschool Leikki and Grades 1-2
Grades 3-11
A preschool interview consists of two stages:
  1. Meeting with parents
  2. Orientation day for the child

Parents come with their child at the appointed time and after a short introduction leave the child in the classroom. Then they meet with the Head of Preschool. This meeting lasts about 30-40 minutes.

The orientation day for the child includes in-class activities, free play time and a meal. Typically, the orientation day is 3 hours long. The school psychologist may visit the class and observe the child as well. Parents pick up their child at the specified time, receive feedback from the teacher, and may ask Head of Preschool additional questions.

Enrollment decision-making process:

The final decision on enrollment is made during a meeting between the teacher, school psychologist and the Assistant Principal of Academic Affairs of Primary School after interviews with the child and parents.

Key conditions for enrollment:

  • The student demonstrates the ability to adapt to the new educational environment;
  • The student understands and can follow simple instructions in English, Kazakh and Russian;
  • The school can support the child in his or her learning;
  • The school is suitable for the successful development of the student;
  • The family shares the values ​​and philosophy of HTA and supports its educational approach.
The 30-minute interview consists of two parts:

  • A meeting with the teachers of the school, the purpose of which is to get to know the child and determine how comfortable he or she is with learning in three languages and whether the student can thus benefit from studying at High Tech Academy.

  • A meeting with the school psychologist, the purpose of which is to find out about child's interests, hobbies and strengths, to see child's psychological portrait to determine appropriate grade and to make a forecast of his or her adaptation to school.

On the day of the interview, the student and his or her parents will be able to see the school and ask their questions during a school tour.

Enrollment decision-making process:

In order to make a final decision on enrollment, HTA leadership team (Dean of Students for primary, middle, and high school, and Academic Vice Principal for Primary and Preschool) consults with teachers and psychologists.
