The teachers are not competent. My daughter's teacher was the secretary and the next school she became my daughter's teacher and she was not doing a good job. She embarrassed the students by orally stating the students ' grade in front of the whole class. The teacher tried to harm my daughter by pushing the desk toward her chest. She did that because she was not trained, qualified, and aware that she had no right to physically harmed the students. The class was doing excellent and once she became their teacher, the entire class dropped.
She could explain and she was the science teacher, History teacher, math teacher, ELA teacher and just had high school diploma. PLEASE put your children somewhere else. In the long run, your child will be the one who will pay the consequence of having incompetent teachers.
I don't know how many times I have recommended International Christian School to friends and acquaintances. My son just graduated from that school and it has imparted to him the required education, but most of all it taught him how to fear and love the LORD more and more. I distinctly remember during his initial interview with the Vice Principal, he was told "you are not here to make friends, but to learn". He did gain friends through the years but putting his studies first was instilled in his mind early on, something I appreciate. I am most thankful and grateful to the Principal, the faculty, and staff of ICS. For any parent who has qualms about where to send their kids to, ICS is for you!
I graduated from ICS many years ago; I worked extremely hard for the grades I got, and was very well prepared to face the real world. I highly recommend this school for kindergarten through high school.
Where are the teachers experienced? IN ICS. The school does not teach regent courses, so don't expect any sort of diploma. The teachers are very talented at reading textbooks. The school also places "security" cameras in very interesting places.
ICS has a very strong curriculum that promotes traditional values and is taught by experienced teachers with a heart for their students and a heart for God. As I suspect is true with any small school, some teachers teach multiple subjects; but I have never seen one of my children's teachers display a lack of knowledge in their subject area. Rather, they seem well-prepared for their classes. Frankly, ICS has some real jewels for teachers. The school focuses on character along with academics, so my children have been well-prepared not only to succeed in college but also in life. I have had my children in ICS since they were very young, and I am confident in recommending ICS to other parents.
This school is horrible. The teachers are unqualified. They are employed simply because they want to teach and attend the affiliate church. If you are looking for a quality education, PLEASE look elsewhere. The teachers are far from helpful. A typical teacher at ICS will spend the class period reading directly from the textbook, and is unable to answer the simplest of questions. The average class size(The entire grade) is about 10 students. International Christian School will leave your student ill-prepared for REGENT tests. ICS also does not administer these tests.DO NOT compare this school's grades with that of another. The grades of tests are based solely on memorization and does not focus in the slightest on true understanding of material. The science program is extremely bias in relaying information to students. Please take a tour of the facility and observe the teachers. Teachers are assigned to teach multiple subjects and do not show a level of understanding for any of them. An ICS teacher may teach English, Science, History, and Music in the same day, leaving me to believe they are not experts in each subject and are not a reliable source of information.
