Middle School

Welcome to Middle School

Middle School at ICS is a thriving community of professionals that deeply recognize the unique, changing physical, emotional and academic needs of middle school students need to be addressed with a growth mindset approach. As we value the need for students to learn in a way that meets their individual academic needs and instilling a growth mindset, we provide our students with a personalized learning approach that enables student agency over learning.

As a school that embodies Professional Learning Communities, our teachers facilitate learning through enquiry, action and reflection. They work collaboratively in grade-level teams to ensure that we continuously answer the four essential PLC questions. As part of our belief in student agency of learning, we organize Student Led Conferences in spring to allow students describe their growth and achievements throughout the year.

Our classrooms are arranged in ways that encourage and enhance cooperative learning. We are a place where one can find students huddled around tables and laptops or stretched out in carpets collaborating in a culture of inquiry and critical learning.

I do not have enough space to thank you enough for taking care of our children for the last 4 years. They've been blessed to attend your school. Our many thanks go all personnel from Admission Office, our first contact, to the teachers and assistants to the maintenance and food services staff who take care of the school and kids so it remains one the best in the continent. A thousand thanks to all of you. This is a great school!

It has been a wonderful experience for the kids. This school was a key factor in our decision to extend in Ethiopia for a total of four years here.

The thing that makes ICS a special place for me is the feeling of community.  Everyone, parents, teachers, support staff and students are all committed to creating a sense of belonging and a welcome feeling.  I think ICS has the potential to become a leader in personalized learning.
