At ICS, students are known, challenged, and supported as individuals, and academics at ICS are stimulating, engaging, effective, and fun. During their years at ICS, students develop into skilled lifelong learners with the skills and strength of character needed to make their mark.
The ICS experience is designed to make students fall in love with learning. We call ourselves “student obsessed” – we’re always asking, “how can we make sure students are engaged?”, “how can our environment promote student well-being and inclusion and encourage students to think beyond their comfort zone?”, “how can we make sure our students are prepared for a world that is changing?” and “how can we make sure our students have as many positive reasons to come to school as possible?” From our individualized approach to reading and math instruction in the younger years to our late-start morning schedule for adolescents to our human development curriculum and all-school traditions, everything at ICS is designed to maximize student engagement, experience, and outcomes.
At ICS, approximately 530 students age 3 to Grade 12 are taught by a caring faculty who are trained experts in how students learn. Each grade level focuses on the developmental and cognitive needs of students as they progress from early childhood to college-bound young adults. As they go through the ICS program, students develop ever-evolving skills, knowledge, confidence, and independence.
