Grade 12 Admission

We will be moving to Dubai in Sept 2015. My son has finished grade 11 from Canada and wants to get admission to grade 12 (preferably Amercian curriculam).  Do schools admit to grade 12 or he has to repeat grade 11? Thanks for your guidance.

Dear Gurmeet,

Generally schools will not admit to Grade 12 unless they can be sure that the same curriculum is being followed.  Given that you would be moving your son from a Canadian curriculum to a US curriculum, this is unlikely.  Although it would be worth checking with the schools individually, I would expect that he will need to repeat grade 11.
