Approach to Online Schooling

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela

Online schooling has the power and the potential to transform the prospects of young people all over the world. It’s an approach that opens doors and widens horizons, offering every pupil greater access to quality education and a greater opportunity to fulfill their potential.

While lessons may be remote and classes virtual, the impact is very real – nurturing a generation of happy, well-rounded and resilient pupils who love independent learning and can’t wait to get up for school in the morning.

Your Learning Team

Learning is a collaborative process. A student’s academic success depends on having a strong support system in place, as well as the quality of the curriculum. Our experienced teachers, school counselors, and subject matter experts work together with each family to make up the learning team. A strong partnership and excellent communication between parents, students, and teachers, gives students confidence, sparks their desire to learn, and ensures a successful learning experience.  

Our Teachers

IGS teachers are passionate about teaching and collaborative learning. Teachers and staff learn about each student’s individual learning style, goals, and needs to enhance curriculum and instruction. Our faculty is selected to support our students based on their ability to effectively meet individual student’s needs.

Our exceptional teachers provide both academic and emotional support so students discover their interests, talents, and natural gifts, and develop the necessary skills to become self-directed adults who are confident about life goals and/or career paths.

Learning is much more than the delivery of instruction and assessments, which is why IGS teachers provide authentic feedback and regularly consult with each student, providing one-on-one support in the ways that the students learns best.

Student Services

The Student Services Department provides personalized assistance to each family and guides them through the onboarding process.

Student Services welcomes families, answers questions during orientation, and provides training and support for the IGS learning management system. To ensure student success, families are encouraged to communicate with Student Services via a variety of methods, including phone, email, and virtual office hours.

Throughout the year, Student Services proactively identifies and tracks students who may find time management to be challenging and who are not making adequate academic progress. The team provides support and guidance with optimal scheduling, facilitates the process of leaves of absence, and authorizes course extensions.

School Counselors

The IGS counselor is a vital member of the learning team. They address the academic, personal, and social development needs of our students throughout their education.

Our counselors help students achieve academic success by reviewing each student’s academic plan to ensure they align with their learning goals, providing resources to improve their learning experience, and helping with career exploration and development.
