GUIDANCE SERVICES

ISB’s approach to education promotes focused learning across the curriculum and outside formal lessons.

Through a combination of classroom observation, discussion with individuals and within small groups, teachers provide the means for students to learn about social responsibility and the importance of respecting their own and each other’s emotional development. All students are given guidance in how to make and value friendships, work in teams, solve problems, deal with conflict, manage strong feelings, compete fairly, respect others' rights and value diversity.

Guidance counsellors work closely with Pastoral Curriculum Leaders at Fiechten and Reinach campuses and the Student Support Team at Aesch campus, to ensure that the personal and social needs of all students are addressed. Students at different times and of different ages encounter a range of issues that may form the basis of workshops and discussion forums allowing students to raise questions and seek answers in a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. Parents are invited to attend some workshops that may be of particular relevance to them or their child.

Parents are asked to be proactive about keeping the School informed of any issues at home that may impact the learning of their child. The School will also inform parents of any concerns regarding the emotional and social well-being of the student. Should long-term or specialized assistance become necessary, a list of English-speaking and German-speaking local healthcare professionals can be obtained from the School.
