Tại ISHCMC-American Academy, một trong những triết lý quan trọng của chúng tôi là xây dựng một cộng đồng học tập tích cực, quan tâm lẫn nhau và hấp dẫn đối với học sinh. Hạnh phúc của trẻ em dưới sự chăm sóc của chúng tôi là một khía cạnh quan trọng trong mọi chương trình giảng dạy của chúng tôi. Do đó, việc thực hiện và duy trì một dịch vụ toàn diện để học sinh và phụ huynh có thể tiếp cận bất cứ khi nào họ cần hỗ trợ liên quan đến sức khỏe của con em là vô cùng quan trọng.

Teaching staff and counsellors at ISHCMC-AA recognise that during teenage years our students can be particularly affected by their ongoing physical and mental growth. During the adolescent phase a human being faces profound changes in brain and functional development as they make the transition from childhood into adulthood.
Not every child is affected profoundly by these changes during their teenage years, nor does every child show clear signs of a problem dealing with these issues. However there is clear scientific evidence to suggest that there is neurobiological reason for impulsive behaviour and emotional stress in adolescents. Therefore the ISHCMC-AA faculty can provide additional and specific support to children and their parents who are affected during this phase.
ISHCMC-AA Wellbeing Support Services
The support services we provide are comprehensive and are available as a constant measure, in the form of appointed advisory teachers, and when relevant, as specific counselling sessions. One Advisory Teacher is assigned to each student and they are responsible for the general welfare of that individual child. Counseling is provided to assist with problems in any area related to academic, social, personal and career development and these beneficial services are available to both students and parents.
The Student Services Department
The ISHCMC-AA Student Services Department handles issues related to student well-being, parent communication, peer mediation and more. The department strongly believes that every student has the potential to do well in school, and with proper mentoring can be supported to develop positive skills and habits that aid them in school and their personal lives.
More details and contact information for the support services provided at ISHCMC-AA can be found in the school prospectus which can be downloaded here.
We are always here for our parents & guardians!
ISHCMC-AA parents and guardians can also find helpful resources to support a child’s learning and well-being on the Parent Information page of our Student & Parent Central portal.
