Admissions

Applying to The Harbour Island Green School is a multistep process meant to determine our school's capacity to support your student. Students are evaluated based on their application responses, family interview and diagnostic assessment. HIGS runs a competitive admissions process and while we would love to accept all students, we can only facilitate a limited number of students. 

 

Through our application process, we hope to build a diverse  body of students and parents who support the school's mission & vision and wholeheartedly uphold our core values: leadership,   sustainability,   love of learning,   creativity   &   community
