The International School of Denver is an inclusive school offering an education to students with a wide range of learning differences and individual needs, including those with specific learning difficulties and differences, as well as those who are highly achieving, or gifted and talented, and require challenge and enrichment.
At ISDenver we embrace students of all cultures and backgrounds, talents and differences. We support all students to help them achieve their full potential and meet their goals in order to become excellent learners and global citizens. All learners deserve to be appropriately challenged and enriched.
Whilst the vast majority of student needs can be met within the mainstream classroom through differentiation by class and subject teachers, those students whose needs fall at either end of the learning developmental continuum are supported by members of the Student Support Team (SST). Students needing additional language support in their target language are supported by designated teachers in those programs.
The role of the Student Support Team is to appropriately support and enhance the learning of the students identified pre- Admission and after enrolment. The SST is staffed to meet the needs of the current cohort of students and the composition of this team may therefore change over time as needs change.
Support and enrichment offered by the specialists includes:
- Literacy skills – across all curricula (English, French, Mandarin, Spanish & the MYP)
- Mathematics skills
- Organizational skills
- Social and emotional support
