STUDENT LIFE

ISAAC is committed to creating and maintaining an educational environment that is physically, emotionally and intellectually safe and thus free from bullying, harassment and discrimination.

ISAAC has a strong student government, community meetings led by students, and a multicultural community of students and staff that are enthusiastic about our core values.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT

The ISAAC Student Government is a group of students that are selectively chosen by the ISAAC student body to represent student interests and concerns. They meet every other school day for forty-five minutes and are responsible for creating positive change for the ISAAC students, faculty, staff, and families.

Throughout the year, each Student Government member plays an active role on each of the six student-created and run committees in which they take full ownership of their ideas, implementations, and successes.

During meeting times, students embrace leadership positions through creating and executing projects, enhance communication skills through the practice of public speaking and writing, and take ownership of seeing their decisions directly impact themselves and their community.

If you believe your child would benefit from counseling services, please contact Ms. Tanya Collins, Dean of Students.

In addition, the Student Support Team provides support and intervention plans for individual students who may need extra assistance during the school day. To provide this support, the team may make classroom observations, recommend counseling, meet with parents or teachers, review academic/behavioral goal-setting guidelines, or determine other means of support.
