Students at the Inter-Community School Zurich learn with and from children from different countries in a highly caring community. Teachers create a supportive and enabling learning environment and we offer learning opportunities and experiences both within, and beyond, our academic programme.
ICS is a community of learners and has a strong community spirit. In addition, we regularly schedule learning events that bring older and younger students to work together. This adds to the positive and friendly learning environment across the school.
In and out of the classroom
Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, to recognise their strengths and strive to reach their potential both in and out of the classroom.
Student progress and success
Student progress and success are important. Grades and reports provide an important assessment of academic progress, but we also recognise student achievement and success in all aspects of ICS life - whether it is participating in sports teams, facing challenges on an expedition, taking part in school shows, being a member of the Student Council or giving service. These activities, and others, provide valuable learning opportunities and experiences for our Secondary students.
