For learning to happen, our education leaders pursue all aspects of their work with a relentless focus on students.
We recognize the central importance of human relationships not only in leadership but in teaching and student learning. At the core, students learn when the school fosters a safe, caring, and supportive environment.
At IHS-AG, the positive learning environment is fostered in school by following programs that set high expectations for student performance, social-emotional learning and behaviour management.
- School follows procedures for catering to individual needs with specialist staff and uses screening tools to ensure accurate identification and highly professional inclusive teaching.
- Identified needs are evaluated and discussed in light of classroom observations, notebook work, and academic assessments.
Care and Support for Students with Learning Differences
In accordance with the IHS-AG ethos, educators ensure that all students reach their full potential, both for their self-fulfilment and for their development into active, responsible adults. We value the individuality, gifts and talents of all of our students.

Care and Support for Highly Abled, Gifted and Talented Students
“Students who have been defined as being gifted and/or talented are students whose abilities and qualities result in their exceptional performance.” The educational needs of such students require specific consideration within mainstream educational programs as their achievements or perceived potential often places them significantly ahead of their peers in one or more of the following areas.
The ‘Gifted Students’ are catered as follows:
- The teacher challenges students with extended work in the classroom as per the student’s ability and strengths.
- Students are also encouraged to participate in external competitions in different areas.
- Meetings are conducted with parents to discuss the student’s potential and ways of supporting their ward.
- An Advanced Learning Plan (ALP) for the student is prepared accordingly.
Educational planning includes ALP for all ‘Gifted Students’ and G&T Coach addresses ascending intellectual demand through strategic planning of content, process and metacognition. Opportunities for challenges are embedded in classroom planning through leadership, creative and collaborative projects.
