We offer numerous programmes to help families transition to their new community. And a vibrant Parents' Association welcomes everyone into its strong social network.
Life at ICS extends far beyond the classroom and involves a strong community spirit. Older and younger students work closely together in many situations, creating a positive and friendly learning environment. A wealth of extra-curricular clubs and activities give students more ways to engage with their peers. The prestigious Round Square organisation teaches the ideals of global citizenship. And “ICS Houses” inject spirit and friendly competition into the day.
Firmly embedded in the ICS Culture of Care, each and every one of our Ambassadors realises how important it is that new students receive a warm welcome as they take their first steps around the ICS campus. Our student Ambassadors offer new classmates support, advice and direction and they are instrumental in making new students feel like they belong to ICS.
