International Community School Reviews

This is truly an amazing establishment. All the teachers care about the students and are so passionate about the subjects that they teach. The small school size allows for many intimate connects to be formed, especially with programs such as Focus Week, where students and teachers take a week to go abroad or try a new activity, and International Night where students, parents and teachers come together to sample foods from all over the world. But, this school is extremely academically rigorous, and it's a big commitment. I think it is 100% worth it; the holistic approach to academics and the work load has pushed me to my limits, and made a better and stronger student.

I attend the International Community School and it definitely lives up to its name. My school emphasizes the importance of fostering strong bonds within and beyond our community with our small grade sizes and programs such as Focus Week. Learning with the same grade of 65 students for the past 6 years has allowed me to form meaningful connections with each and every person in my grade; ICS has definitely become a home away from home. Besides the excellent academics, ICS provides students with an experience called Focus Week every year, when students travel all over the world to experience different cultures. I was fortunate enough to participate in the program for 6 years. Some of my most influential experiences include traveling to Spain and Greece, which allowed me to envelop myself in cultures and become a more worldly person.
While the International Community School may not have a traditional AP-style curriculum, the lessons you will learn and the people you will meet will change your life forever!
