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.


The House Groups were created to help build our community and give students a sense of belonging and ownership in Middle School. Each student is assigned to a House Group, identified by one of six colors: Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Yellow, or Purple. Within their Color House designation, students participate in inter-house activities, in Spirit Week, and house group competitions. Each House Group is made up of students from Grades 6, 7, and 8 and provides opportunities for positive interaction among the grade levels.
