ICS staff is very hands on with assisting & encouraging students in how to treat fellow classmates and ICS staff. Students and staff participate in events & activities both inside & outside the school that support helping others.
ICS is a public charter school full of diversity-culturally & economically . The teachers & staff are knowledgeable & supportive of students & their families. Both Spanish programs are awesome & the school provides many opportunities that help to reinforce the students new language skills. Since attending this school my children have been exposed to many great personal & academic experiences.
Our daughter has attended since kindergarten and is now starting the 8th grade. A much better option to a neighborhood school. Great teachers. International focus is preparing her to be a responsible citizen of the world. I wish they continued through the 12th grade, but opening the West Philadelphia branch will give more children the opportunity to receive a great elementary school experience.
Dedicated teachers, great staff, amazing parents and kids. Since my son won the lottery for a spot in ICS I feel like I never need to win another thing. This school looks and feels like the city of Philadelphia, with a diverse student body made of kids from every neighborhood. We're very lucky to be part of it.
