my first child's first school life starts at ICS with love, care, diverse, curiosity, enthusiasm and new skill....without ICS my child won't be able to get all of the taste of academic. i really appreciated ICS!
My daughter is new to the school this year as a kindergartener. And so far she is enjoying each day. I am impressed by the friendliness and warmth of the teachers and staff and how it already is beginning to feel like a family. I like that the school allows time for kids to be kids with two recess periods a day. Also each day the child is exposed to a second language of either French or Spanish. The specials are impressive too; music, art, and science lab. Our first impressions are all favorable.
In a short period of time, it is apparent that children are how to be open, welcoming and inviting to others who may be new, different or just plain shy. After stressing about transitioning our children, we could not be happier that we have finally made the choice now if we could only go all the way to the 8th grade what a beloved community this really would be. Kudos to all those who work hard here the teachers, the administrative staff, the principal everyone for making education and joy your number one priorities.
ICS is a place where children matter. The staff both reflect and honor cultural diversity. This school is in the business of nuturing, educating, and developing outstanding world citizens.
Doing the 'Just' thing isn't just a tag line...it's the mission of The International Community School, where educating and supporting refugee children from around the globe along side American children, is a gift to the world. ICS... where everyone is a teacher!
It his giving my beautiful grandaughters a a diverse and broad education that will equip them well to face the challenges and opportunities of life in a multi cultural world. Well done ICS!
I love this school for its creativity, caring, values, and extremely qualified teachers. Most parents are unaware that georgia teachers can teach with a four year degree. Its the the little things tha make me feel safe after 4 years of my little girl going to ICS.
I love how each individul child is honored and valued while still creating a sense of community that brings together so many diverse cultures.
I love the mission of the school and its commitment to refugee, international, and community students through the IB curriculum...not to mention the fabulous staff and teachers.
I love most everything at ICS, but they have great teachers/staff who LOVE children and know how to have fun!
I love the school because the atmosphere is like that of a family. The community is a diverse one and the classrooms have a low student teacher ratio, with an assistant teacher in every classroom. The school without question will prepare any child for the WORLD.
My daughter will soon graduate from ICS. She has attended since Kindergarten. She has blossomed into a very caring and beautiful person. I owe much of her disposition to ICS. The school has been an inspiration to our family. Many families have come together at ICS in love and commitment for a better tomorrow and stronger relations across our different cultures. ICS has provided a safe and loving environment that really focus on a child's global development. I am sad that 6th grade will be it for us at ICS. ICS will do a great job with winning America's Favorite School as they have already done so much with so little. If you have never heard of ICS, visit our web site www.icsgeorgia.org.
I have worked in the afterschool program at ICS for four years providing a Character Club Program for Kindergarteners. I am a retired teacher and never have I witnessed such a dedicated, caring, loving school community. The teachers and staff truly care about the children and each other. It seems to be a very supportive environment. The teachers are happy to be there (inspite of the fact that their salaries are lower than others in the system) and work well together to support the mission of the school (to serve the children and their families). Furthermore, I am very impressed with the International Bacalaureate Curriculum and the way it focuses on educating the whole child (mind, body and spirit) and helping each child to develop a sense of his or her identity as a world citizen. The children are so loving and eager to learn, inspite of the many horrors and hardships many of them have experienced. They are caring and compasionate and work hard to be 'Peacemakers'. This school is succeeding in a sea of failing schools. ICS certainly needs funds because of all the special needs of both the refugee children and the local children. Better facilities and more funds could help to make the school a 5 star and it would be nice to be able to reward all those that are working for 'love' of the kids and the mission.
Excellence in education and a nurturing, intentionally diverse community--ICS is a wonderful school!
This school is a once in a lifetime learning opportunity. As a charter school developed to serve the refugee community as well as U.S. born kids, it serves students from all over the world. The teachers, staff, and administration are among the most talented and dedicated I've even known. I feel so grateful that my daughter has the opportunity to attend this school!
This school is awesome. We have 20 schools to choose from and this is our first choice, the teachers are so positive with the kids, they use compassionate communication instead of harsh criticism. Best school I've ever experienced.
ICS is a very caring and nurturing environment. The faculty and staff go above and beyond to make sure all children are happy!
International Community School is on a Mission to join the local American Community to the International Refugee community. They are an awesome school that educations the whole child.
