Grandparent asks: should my 8 year old grandson start 2nd grade or 3rd grade at American school in Spain?

Asked on behalf of an visitor who emailed:

"My grandson is 8 yrs. old and moving to Madrid, Spain from Holland. He knows Dutch, English and Spanish well. Would he be better off starting in 2nd or 3rd grade? He is Spanish and Mexican-American. He will most likely be attending an American school and learning in English. Please advise."
