will remain in the same level for at least

your child's progress can be provided by
your child's current instructor. Staff will
do their best to move children into the
appropriate class level the first day of
each session if space is available. If a
move cannot be accommodated, the
instructor should be able to work with
the student at the appropriate skill level.
