Learning Support in High School

The High School Learning Support team serves as an integral part of the school’s inclusive community supporting students with specific diagnosed learning and behavioral disabilities. The Learning Support team works in collaboration with the admissions officer, the general education teachers, administrators, parents, students and counselors to support the students in their regular education curriculum. The team focuses on students meeting and exceeding the demands of the academic requirements at the senior school level.

Students are taught specific academic skills, study and organizational skills, self-advocacy skills, and social skills to help them achieve their goals. Students who receive learning support services must have an International Individual Education Plan (IILP).

If students begin to struggle with the regular education curriculum after they are admitted to CIS, the Learning Support team participates in helping support students and parents by accessing extra needed support as determined through the Student Study Team (SST) process.
