High School News, David Redmond, Principal

Dear Parents,

Below please find important information on current and upcoming events in the High School.

Progress Reports, Goal Setting, and Conferences

Than you to all of you who managed to come out to attend the conferences, despite our Internet problems. At the conferences, students have been able to present on their goals and share important insights into their academic progress with parents. Teachers and Advisors have been able to support students by helping them to set these SMART Goals (i.e. goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-bound) and to develop effective learning strategies to improve learning. We will review students’ progress in Advisory in mid-November and determine how we can further support students to reach their goals this semester. The first semester ends on 16 December and we will send reports home at that time.

If you were not able to attend the conferences, of some teachers or if they were not available and you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact us at to make an alternative appointment.

Early Dismissal on Thursday and Friday, 13 and 14 October

ICS closes early on these days and high school students are dismissed at 11:30 AM. Please note that all students should leave campus at that time. On Thursday, students may return for their conferences between 4:00 and 7:00 PM. Please arrange to collect your children or to have someone else meet them at 11:30 AM.

School Mid-Term Break

ICS closes for a well-deserved break from Monday 17 October until Friday 21 October. We wish all ICS families a healthy and restful break and look forward to seeing you on our return on 24 October!

Please continue to read the weekly Yezare Samint for important information regarding our high school program, and please don’t hesitate to contact me at for any matter pertaining to your child’s education.
