High School brings about a monumental change to the life of the young adolescent. Students enter Grade 9 seeking independence from parents, close bonds with their peer group, and increased responsibility. Grade 12 students leave demonstrating independence, increased ability to reason, a strong sense of right and wrong, and the ability to make conscientious decisions. They develop into the best versions of themselves. No two students develop in the same way, and ISKL supports each of our diverse group of learners individually.

We welcome students with learning differences whose needs can be met with minor adjustments to the curriculum’s instructional methods. Student Resource Teams (SRT) are made up of faculty, counselors and administrators who meet regularly and determine how to best meet the educational goals of students with learning needs. The Learning Support Teachers support students in their content-area courses, providing assistance with time management, work completion and organization.
The HS English as an Additional Language EAL Program is designed to develop English language competency of EAL students to meet grade level, subject specific and school expectations. The EAL department scaffolds language acquisition in content and academic concepts to support students so they can access the mainstream curriculum. All EAL students are placed in their grade level mainstream English, history and science courses, and partnered with an EAL support course appropriate to their level of language acquisition.
