Academic Program

Recognizing the unique needs and challenges of middle school (grades 6–8, ages 11-14), ICS provides an environment in which students can grow socially and intellectually, while also building the strong academic foundation needed to be successful in high school and the IB program.

The MYP’s holistic philosophy of education provides the basis for a broad and balanced curriculum that includes eight subject groups. The MYP is designed to help students develop disciplinary and interdisciplinary understanding through concurrently taught courses in each subject group in each year of the program.  

"We have a lot of freedom to choose how we learn in middle school, and that helps us become responsible. I love it."- Grade 7 Student

Beyond the Classroom

In addition to a rigorous academic program, ICS Middle School students are involved in several programs designed to meet the social and emotional needs of adolescents. These programs include: House Groups, Advisory, After School Activities and School Trips.
