In keeping with our stated mission, students whose educational and physical needs can be met will be admitted. Students are expected to be able to function independently in the classroom. IICS offers limited services for students with mild learning difficulties and disabilities. They are supported by the Learning Support Teacher in class or outside of class depending on their needs. Support is also given by the Guidance Counselor. Admission of students with learning needs into Secondary the DP program is determined after a review of their documentation on psychoeducational evaluations and externally issued individualized plans in order to assess the degree of support that can be provided.
Specific reading, writing, language, and math difficulties will be assessed and provided with support either outside of class or in class, whichever is most beneficial for the student. Students with more complex learning needs will be dealt with by a team approach. Learning Support meetings with parents are held to provide detailed feedback on progress and recommendations for student development.
Our Learning Support personnel can recommend additional private services for those in need. Please be advised that the services available locally may not be as extensive as what families are used to in their home countries.
The needs of students with severe language, social, emotional, behavioural, spectrum disorders, physical limitations, untreated moderate to severe ADHD or borderline range and lower intellectual capacity are such that IICS is not able to accommodate them.
