For learning to happen, our education leaders pursue all aspects of their work with a relentless focus on students.
We recognize the central importance of human relationships not only in leadership but in teaching and student learning. At the core, students learn when education leaders foster safe, caring, and supportive school learning communities.
At IIS, the positive learning environment is fostered in school by following programs that set high expectations for student performance, social-emotional learning and behaviour management.
- School follows procedures for catering to individual needs with specialist staff and uses screening-tools to ensure accurate identification and highly professional inclusive teaching.
- Identified needs are evaluated and discussed in light of classroom observations, notebook work, periodic tests and term exams.

Care and Support for Highly Abled, Gifted and Talented Students
“Students who have been defined as being gifted and/or talented are students whose abilities and qualities result in their exceptional performance.” The educational needs of such students require specific consideration within mainstream educational programs as their achievements or perceived potential often place them significantly ahead of the majority of their peers in one or more of the following areas.
- The teacher challenges students with extension work in the classroom as per the student’s ability and strengths.
- Students are also encouraged to participate in external competitions in different areas.
- Meetings are conducted with parents to discuss the student’s potential and ways of supporting the child.
