School Description:

  • engaging learning experiences through inquiry and reflection
  • a broad range of local, global and virtual opportunities
  • innovative and flexible use of resources
  • Our elementary school is accredited as a Primary Year Program (PYP) school. All elementary classrooms include a full time teaching assistant; many of our TAs have masters degrees in education from SUNY Buffalo. There are a limited number of TAs in the secondary. In the high school, we encourage all students to participate in the IB Diploma Program. Service learning is an integral part of learning at ICS and there are opportunities for teachers to be engaged in service projects as well. ICS is an inclusive school, enrolling a small percentage of students with moderate or intensive learning support requirements. These students are integrated into our classrooms for much or all of the school day. We provide a merit scholarship program for 16 high-achieving Ethiopian students in the high schoolmdash;four in each grade. Almost all of our students are involved in school activities and sports beyond the academic day. Teachers chaperone ldquo;Week Without Wallsrdquo; trips within Ethiopia for grades 4ndash;12. Teachers and teaching assistants also provide one hour per week (or more) of student contact time outside of class for two of our three activity seasonsmdash;in coaching, clubs or activities. ICS teachers are expected to work collaboratively with colleagues each week around student learning, common assessments, unit planning, curriculum development or reflection, and professional growth. The ICS Learner Profile guides planning and assessment throughout the school. We use inquiry as a model and technology as a tool for teaching and learning at all grade levels. Our curriculum is available on the school website and is based on Common Core, NGSS and other standards. Programs in use at ICS to support learning and teaching include Atlas, Moodle, PowerSchool (with standards-based grading) and Google docs. ]]>
