Social-Emotional Learning Committment
At IECHS, social-emotional learning (SEL) is central to developing the whole student, so we will:
- Create a community and support network through strong relationships between parents, staff, and students;
- Empower students to take ownership of their learning and well-being;
- Foster a safe environment that promotes empathy;
- Equip all stakeholders with the appropriate strategies to manage social, emotional, and academic stressors.
Ultimately, our vision will lead students on the path to self-reflection, resilience, and growth.
