It is an amazing school! The teachers care about your education but also you as a person. The school provides lots of fun activities for the high school to bond and get to know one another. Our school is K-12 and it feels like a family rather than just a school because a lot of the kids have been then for many years together. The academic expectations are high and the school is a university model both of which push its students to work hard and obtain academic success and gain skills that will last a lifetime!
The academic rigor was intense, but I had all the support needed to excel. The most important aspect of my education at ICS was character development - we were taught to care for others, be respectful, forgive, love, and be obedient to authority. Parent involvement is an important part of the school culture - there is a parent in every classroom, every day until high school. ICS's tuition is 1/4 of comparable schools - but their scholastic standard is equal to the best.
International Community School has been incredibly welcoming and the orientation and onboarding have been phenomenal. The Chief Administrator is a dynamic leader for the school and everyone we’ve encountered has been wonderful.
This school has one of the strongest communities I've ever seen in a school. The students and staff make all the difference in my experience of High School.
I have been at my school since Pre-K and I have loved it. ICS surrounds you with a safe community to grow up in and learn more about your faith in. ICS and its amazing teachers have helped to foster in me a love for school. I wish we had more courses in AP science, and science in general. Overall I love my school and if I had to go back, I would not have gone anywhere else.
Absolutely amazing!! Our family loves that this is the perfect balance of private & home school. The community is incredible, the teachers and staff will pray for and love on your kids while encouraging them to meet high academic standards, and the leadership is top notch. We feel so blessed to have found such a special place and our kids LOVE it!
This school is amazing in all the areas most important to me like quality of education, parent involvement, college readiness, and building community. The hybrid model allows it to have great teachers and classes as well as days at home where parents can be more involved in our education
ICS is a place where Jesus is glorified, parents are valued, and students are loved. The academics are challenging, and students are very well-prepared for whichever college they choose to attend.
We love what the ICS community stands for. Unfortunately, our experience has shown there is a large gap between stated values and practice. Everyone of us has our faults, but grace should enable us to humbly own our mistakes. Instead, leadership at has been controlling and fearful in the face of failure. If we had another option, we would probably choose it.
My overall experience with ICS was great. It's a small school so you're really just one big family. I became really close with a lot of the teachers and staff members there, as they really have the best interest of each student in mind. They are all servant hearted and loving. Now, being a small school that's like a big family, means you may have "arguments" like a big family would. Not everyone gets along at all times, and it can be hard making friends if you don't get along with the 20 other kids in your class. For me though, that was just part of the journey. Experiencing life with the people who influence you the most, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
I’m a senior and I love it. It’s an amazing Christian environment as long as you have a healthy relationship with God and keep a good attitude. Teachers are amazing and love to help even outside of class. It’s also one of the best educations I possible could have asked for.
International Community School is great! The teachers are amazing. They really care and take time to make sure that you understand the content. This school cares about all of you, not just the academic side of you.
The International Community School is a great place to combine your Christian faith and your education. They combine both a great education with a good foundation in the Bible. All the teachers are amazing and point you to God each and every day. It is a tight knit community of kids that love the Lord.
ICS is awesome! The teachers and staff are caring. The environment of this school allows students to expand their faith and excel in education. The community this school creates is welcoming.
I had a great experience at this school. The teachers wanted to see me succeed and were always available if I needed help with anything.
I love this place. I have gone here my whole life and it has been the best thing ever. The teachers are invested and willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed not only in the class room but in life as well. While all schools have their ups and downs, ICS has had a huge impact on my life and I would not have wanted to go anywhere else throughout my schooling years.
I like the academics and teachers the most at International Community School. The academics are challenging and very college-focused. You are able to pick classes that fit your schedule. Also when you duel-enroll you are able to take whatever classes you would like without the school setting boundaries to what classes you can take. I didn't like that ICS didn't provide a variety of clubs to be apart of. The only clubs they offer are SGA, NHS, and book club. So for the kids not apart of sports they have a hard time finding an outlet.
