Our strong and supportive community
With families from 55 countries, our vibrant and engaging Parent Association offers a valuable social network.
The ICS Parents' Association (PA) is an important part of the school and the ICS community. The PA's purpose is to enhance the children's educational experience, provide a social and supportive environment for international families and build a spirit of community. All parents and guardians of ICS students are members of the PA.
The PA works diligently to ensure that all families are made to feel welcome and part of our community. We recognise that transitioning into a new school, country and culture can be difficult. ICS, along with the PA, work together to ensure that our families feel part of the ICS community as quickly as possible.

The PA supports several causes and charities. This includes the ICS scholarship students from Nepal as they embark on higher educational studies following their graduation from ICS. These students are selected from our partner school SMD in Kathmandu, Nepal. They study at ICS for their IB Diplomas through Grades 11 and 12, living with ICS host families. We support these students so they can continue their studies at university before returning home to their communities where they are committed to making a difference.
At ICS, the PA supports the community by organising various events throughout the school year including the Welcome Back Picnic, Book Fairs, Halloween Party, Winter Market, Zurich Walking Tour, the International Festival, Workshops, PA/Parent Conversations with the ICS Leadership Team and many other exciting happenings throughout the school year.
At ICS, we believe in the importance of both learning about and offering service locally and globally.
