Although students at ISB are encouraged to challenge themselves - we do not expect them to go about it alone. Coming from different schools, countries and systems can be a challenge, so we work with each student to make sure they can thrive at ISB.
We are proactive and responsive in the development of each child’s needs through a multidisciplinary team based approach. Each school division has active Multidisciplinary Student Study Teams that provide a positive, problem-solving process to identify strategies and programmes that may resolve or alleviate academic or personal difficulties that students are having. Whatever the circumstances, we are here to help students succeed.
Many people came into our lives and supported us, but ISB acted as the backbone to Parth’s success today. I really hope that the world will become more open to supporting students with learning support needs, because if someone is capable of achieving something, no matter who they are, then they should be given the chance to try it. ISB gave us that chance.”

ISB Counselling Services
We offer counselling programmes that are both proactive and responsive to student needs throughout the school to support students and parents focusing on four domains: Academic, Personal Social, Careers, and Global Perspectives.
We offer collaborative approaches in referral and consultations with community mental health services, and monitoring of student mental health needs on Campus. Some assessments for learning and developmental needs are available in house as well as part of our multidisciplinary approach. We actively monitor and respond in cases of emotional needs and have a rigorous Child Protection Policy to ensure the physical and psychological safety of children.
At ISB we promote, support, and protect student and employee health. Our goal is to enable general well-being, success for learning, and a balanced healthy lifestyle, through both physical and emotional support during school hours. Qualified School Nurses, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational/Sensory Integration Therapists, and Physical Therapists are integral parts of our multidisciplinary team.
We believe in our Mission of inclusion and understand the power a rich and diverse student population brings to the learning experience for all students. At ISB we welcome students with diverse learning needs and understand the complexity and mutual benefit of being a truly inclusive school. We cater to a wide range of learning needs from mild to intensive learning and developmental disabilities, and manage numbers carefully to ensure that students receive the highest level of support and care. Our dedication to creating a truly inclusive school sets us apart - and allows all our students to make discoveries beyond the classroom about why inclusion matters.
We provide the full spectrum of Learning Support, with managed numbers to maintain balanced classes. For most students, we are able to meet their needs within the classroom with differentiated strategies, however, when students require more than differentiated support in the classroom they could receive learning support.
