Students can do it all.
At ICS, students do not have to choose between academics, athletics, arts, and other co-curriculars. We have designed the schedule so as to limit as often as possible the number of sacrifices students have to make. We build our academic schedule each year based on course selections so we can get students into as many of their top-choice courses as possible. Students at ICS very often participate in theater (rehearsals typically meet in the morning), in chorus (rehearses during X-block), in clubs (during community time), and on athletic teams (practices/games after school).
We believe high school is a time when students should try as many opportunities as possible to explore their passions and discover new interests. We are fortunate that our schedule doesn't force students to choose between doing the things they love.
