Welcome

At XIS, we recognize that learning happens both in and out of the classroom. We are so excited to provide our school community with various opportunities to learn and grow in all facets of life: physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and morally.

Our XIS community strives to embrace a growth mindset each and every day as we. Challenges are simply opportunities to grow and learn. While some may say, “I can’t do this” Warriors say, “I can’t do this YET!”

“The expert an anything was once a beginner”

John Senechal ASA Scholarship Fund

Mr.John Senechal was the first full time PE teacher at XIS. He worked hard to develop a PE program to benefit XIS students. With this dream, XIS Athletics expanded to include Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, and Table Tennis. Now, XIS Athletics has grown even further to become XIS After School Activities which includes sport teams as well as academic clubs.

In honor of Mr. John’s dedication to establishing sports opportunities for students and his contributions at XIS, XIS established the John Senechal Athletics Scholarship Fund. In order to continue in the spirit of its mission while recognizing the growth of XIS the fund has since been renamed the John Senechal ASA Scholarship Fund. Helping students have opportunities to participate in XIS After School Activities remains the fund’s mission.
