ISD Counselling Department Mission Statement
As advocates for our students, we work in partnership with our learning community to affirm and support ISD’s overall mission, philosophy and educational principles. As such, we aim to develop each student’s academic, social and emotional competencies through the delivery of a developmentally and culturally appropriate counselling and Life Skills curriculum. In doing so, we strive to empower students to make choices that positively enhance their own well-being and that of others, now and for the future.
