May 13, 2022, Update

Christina Powers, Secondary School Principal

It is great having so many of our students back to in-person learning. The energy of the classroom and the playground continues to build. 

Just a reminder that Monday, May 16, 2022 is a school holiday- There is no school for students

Chess … A new addition to the 4th Floor

Chess is a fun way to exercise logic, develop pattern recognition, and make decisions. Not to mention is just a great way to spend time with peers. 

ISY is proud to share with you The iMPACT Festival of 2022 for Middle School Students. The iMPACT festival aims to bring positive change to the local community through the actions and compassion of our students.

iMPACT is a service-learning event designed to facilitate the full ISY learning cycle, from investigation through action to reflection and demonstration. It provides students through middle school the chance to learn new skills, apply theory to practice and become agents of positive change for the local and global community.
