Should you wish to seek admission for your child in GMIS, contact the Admissions Office or mail at: admission@gmissemarang.org to request an application form, fees details and related information. Parents are required to:

  • Provide the school with all relevant educational and medical information about their children
  • Provide child’s general health report from a qualified doctor once the application is complete, and if acceptance is granted
  • Agree to support the school’s procedures and requirements, to fulfill all financial obligations, and to comply with the school rules and regulations.
  • The school reserves the right to determine placement of the applicant in the grade level. The school also reserves the right to discontinue a student’s enrolment, in case need be, at any time. We welcome children from many different ethnic and racial groups, backgrounds and creeds. All candidates for admission will be treated equally, irrespective of their or their parents’ race, color, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin or other status. The School needs to be aware of any known disability or special educational need which may affect a child’s ability to participate in the admissions procedure and take full advantage of the education provided at the School.

    Parents of a child who has any disability or special educational need should provide the School with full details prior to the admissions procedure at registration, or subsequently before accepting the offer of a place. The School needs this information so that, in the case of any child with a particular need, the School can assess those needs and consult with parents about the adjustments which can reasonably be made to ensure that the application procedure is accessible for the child and the School can cater adequately for the child’s needs should an offer of a place be made. If special education needs or a disability become apparent after admission, the School will consult with parents about reasonable adjustments that may allow the child to continue at the School.
