Culture of Care

Culture of Care

ICS is 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 2016, they commended: "The entire school community for putting into action the principles underlying the school's mission." Furthermore, ICS staff was applauded for "embracing the Guiding Statements in their classroom practice." They also praised our school community "for creating a warm, welcoming and positive school climate where respect is nurtured."

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.
