All Students ( High School Students)
Purpose: Transitioning to IMSA is a time of new choices, responsibility, and freedom. As a result, sometimes, students’ intentions are not always the best for the individual or the situation. Throughout the IMSA experience, students are caught in the middle of the new community’s values in which they live. Students internalize what they see their peers and role models doing and decide how to live their own lives. Every interaction that students have during their IMSA years affects how they see themselves and how they see others—helping students understand why character matters will allow them to value kindness, cooperation, sharing, and compassion for others. Also, helping students recognize choice and accountability-making decisions, accept consequences, and be responsible for their choices.
