It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. Although the world has changed significantly in the last several months, we are excited to be back on campus and prepared to deliver the best possible program for our students regardless of where they may be. We know we will face challenges this year but we are committed to meet our mission of providing an exceptional education for all of our students.
The Middle School program embraces a holistic approach to developing each student. While we continue to refine instructional delivery, curriculum, and assessment practices to best suit our students' needs in this rapidly changing world, the essence of middle school culture at ISKL remains the same. We believe that students will reach their full potential in an environment of empathy and care, where each student can explore their own unique talents and gifts. This diversity is a strength and valued by every member of our faculty. We help students find their passions and interests by offering a learner-driven program with authentic, real-world challenges both inside and outside the classroom. Our academic and social and emotional learning goals in the Middle School program represent the most research-based international curriculum. Every learning experience is designed specifically to help our students develop the necessary skills and competencies to not only succeed in school but also transform our world for the betterment of themselves, their communities, and the environment we all share.
This journey is a partnership between parents and the school, and we are so grateful to be on this path of educating your children with you. The Middle School at ISKL belongs to all of us and we all have a role in making it special. By working together, we can create a place where your children will grow, learn, and reach their potential as happy, well-adjusted citizens who value learning and care for their global community.
As you peruse the information on this site, please feel free to contact us at school with any questions you may have (firstname.lastname@example.org). You are also always welcome to come into school to have a conversation with your child's teachers, counselors, or administrators. You are always welcome on campus, and we value your on-going support and involvement in ISKL.
We look forward to seeing you on campus for one of our many parent information sessions, performances, or sporting events throughout the year. It is going to be a wonderful year of learning and growth in Middle School.
Your in partnership,
