At XLIS, educators and students alike, strive to create and provide the school, as well as its extended family with meaningful events throughout each academic year. These events cover a multitude of subjects and share the same goal: to bring our community together and allow for learning opportunities to be enjoyed by everyone, including our stakeholders. Some of these events focus on sports and the spirit of collaboration, while others focus on discussing world problems and student growth. Finally, our academic leaders design monthly workshops aimed to assist parents and families to better support their children at home. These workshops are part of our “Family Education Series” and are extremely useful for parents wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the approaches to teaching and learning used at XLIS and how to extend the learning that happens in the classroom, into their very homes.
