At the International School Eastern Seaboard, we believe students learn best in a caring and inclusive environment. We provide focused in class support and targeted instruction to meet diverse student needs.
ISE uses a collaborative approach to co plan, co-teach and co assess so students can learn in an inclusive environment with high expectations and high support.
The student is at the heart of the integrated model and the homeroom teacher is the primary support for students in his or her care. A student support team will be created according to the needs of the student’s.
ISE recognizes that the academic, social and emotional needs of the students may be significantly different from their peers. Students parents and staff are involved in a collaborative process for developing differentiated programs that best support the learning needs of the child as a whole in an inclusive class environment.
