The Glenburnie School community has enjoyed the experience of welcoming international students from countries throughout the world and look forward to further opportunities in the future.

• All students unable to attend a visiting day will be interviewed by us via digital media, i.e. Skype, to determine the level of language ability, strengths, and weaknesses, etc.
• A limited number of places are offered for full/part year students who require an integrated program with additional ESL/ELL support and programming.
• The number of places offered will be dependent on the number of ESL/ELL students already registered at Glenburnie School.
