High School

Welcome to High School


“High Challenge - High Support”

Our engaging and vigorous curriculum in grades 9 and 10, and the IB Diploma program for grades 11 and 12, challenge students to think critically, to apply their knowledge across academic subjects and to take agency over their own learning.

At the same time, our educators, administrators and counselors support our students every step of the way with personal, academic and college counseling services. High school students meet in advisories throughout the four high school years, for organizational support, course selection and pathways, reflection and team-building.

In addition, our program promotes inquiry and personalized learning through service learning. Our robust CAS program is not limited to IB students but is embraced and practiced throughout high school. Our grade 11 internship program allows students practical real-world work experience.

Our students are supported to successfully master the skills and mindset needed to thrive beyond high school to become global citizens.

Please forward you questions, and stay connected with the high school at hs.school@icsaddis.org.

I have found the community at ICS very welcoming compared to my previous school. You can easily make friends across age and grade levels. ICS is a really fun, safe and beautiful place to be.

SST Teacher - Tigist Hailu

My journey of growth involves learning from colleagues, students, administrators, the community and Professional Development sessions provided by inside and outside experts. To me, ICS is a reminder that the sky is the limit.

Student - Daniel G11

Learning at ICS is not only about academics but also about fitting in the real world. The learning process is very practical and has helped me develop a clear conceptual understanding of the outer world.

Parent - Ms. King

As a parent, I feel my children are getting the very best at ICS in terms of being in charge of their learning.  They have dedicated, inspiring teachers, committed after school coaches, and a range of ways that enable students to connect with both local and international communities.
