STUDENTS ARE KNOWN, CARED, AND ADVOCATED FOR
The counseling services provided by IST are an integral part of the IST programs. Counselors work in a proactive, child-centered, and developmental manner with kids, parents, and teachers. Our counselors teach character education lessons, provide individual and family counseling, facilitate small group workshops for students, lead parent coffees, conduct entry and exit family transitional programs, and coordinate student services in the school.
All facets of a student's experience at school and beyond are linked to their social and emotional well-being. It includes their cognitive, emotional, and social health and development, as well as their ability to understand themselves, form and maintain relationships with others, and engage in an active, healthy lifestyle.
Through guiding workshops, individual and small group work, IST takes a holistic approach to social and emotional development, time management, conflict resolution, and friendship are just a few of the themes discussed.
