With a low student teacher ratio and students from more than 30 nations, International Community School (ICS) is a fully accredited Pre- Kindergarten to 12th-grade international school teaching an American college-preparatory curriculum with a Biblical world view.
Alongside academics, ICS instills in each student a love and respect for people of all cultures, a zeal for lifelong learning, and a passion for personal excellence.
ICS is a community school small enough for students to explore and participate in a variety of activities, but large enough to provide an excellent academic education. By having small class sizes and low student-teacher ratio for each of their classes, it allows for more space in classrooms and for students to be known, ask questions, and foster a love of learning.
Technology is also integrated into the classroom from Kindergarten onwards, leading to the 1-to-1 laptop programme in Grades 4 to 12. ICS takes pride in its use of technology and helps shape its students to become responsible digital citizens.
A Christian school, ICS operates within the framework of Christian principles, whilst still respecting the religious preferences of parents and students.
Through its Advanced Placement Programme, 80 percent of its graduates managed to get into US universities. Its American-based curriculum is championed by a strong faculty; 85 percent of which hold US teaching credentials. The flexibility in its programmes allows students to build their education based on their needs, dreams, gifts, and abilities.
“My daughter thinks that ICS is the best international school in Singapore! Because of the small class sizes, every student gets the personal attention that they need. She always tells me that her teachers are the greatest because they are kind, nurturing and care for their students with a warm heart. ICS’s tuition fee is reasonable and their focus is on holistic education and academic rigour.” – Youngjoo Kim, mother of Lucy (Grade 1)
