Culture of Care
What many people notice and really appreciate about ICS is our sense of community. We are a mutually supportive community of learners. Staff support students, students support each other and parents support the whole school community.
We believe that children learn best in a nurturing environment where they feel supported in learning. This view was reinforced by the accreditation team from the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools & Colleges . After visiting us in January 2012, they commended ICS on "the climate of trust and care that exists between students and staff as the basis for an outstanding environment for learning and personal development".
Our culture of care extends beyond our own community. At ICS we offer many opportunities for service learning: in helping others, students also learn about themselves. The following web pages highlight some of our service initiatives.
