Discount due to economic reasons
If the amount of the tuition fee forms an exceptionally unproportioned share in calculation of the family’s incomes, and it is likely that the family may face difficulties in covering their other expenses after payment of the tuition fee, the school may reduce the amount of the tuition fee.
International School of Tallinn has the right, not the obligation, to reduce the amount of the tuition fee. International School of Tallinn applies the principle of equal treatment but will take into consideration constrained budgets and other subjective or objective circumstances.
International School of Tallinn is not bound to any previous decisions made in the favour of families with the same or similar number of children or families with the same or similar incomes. The circumstances of each case are considered separately.
