We are a learning community, passionate about providing an International Education, which inspires and encourages learning and intercultural understanding.
The Learning Support Programme is designed to assist in developing the academic, behavioral and social development of students identified as in need of extra support.
This is achieved through a continuum of services beginning from consultation with teachers to individualized instruction.
The Goal of Learning Support is to assist students at all grade levels to maintain and develop as a successful and independent learner with positive self-advocacy skills. The Learning Support Programme (LSP) is a referral program. Referral is made by a staff member, student or parent for the additional support. Individualized goals and strategies will be developed to assist the student in meeting his/her fullest potential. No grades are assigned. An additional fee per session is charged.
*It is important to note that the program is designed to be a “fluid” program as the students may enter and/or exit the program as they become successful.
The key component to the program is COMMUNICATION between student, parents and teachers.
