    ICS Definition of Learning

    Learning is an ongoing process in which learners acquire, develop and apply knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential to thrive in, and contribute to, an ever-changing world.

    Learning is optimized when it is: personalized, meaningful, authentic, reflective, collaborative, trans-disciplinary and active.

    Personalized Learning Experience

    We are committed to ensuring that all students learn and engage at the highest levels.  As children find high levels of challenge and support here, we believe they will master essential standards and will gain both competence and confidence as learners and people.  Personalized learning offers your children joyful ownership of what and how they learn (the learning process), so they can apply it to any other learning in school and to life beyond ICS. 

    We are creating a final interdisciplinary unit at the end of the school year, focusing on personalized learning experiences for all students. This personalized learning experience will give our students the opportunity to inquire and apply their learning in authentic and meaningful ways. For more information, click HERE.

    Service Learning at ICS

    ICS service learning is a learning strategy that allows students to have agency and to connect with and contribute to the community through positive and meaningful actions. It allows students to meet learning targets/objectives, grow personally and develop a sense of social responsibility through real world application. At ICS, there are service learning opportunities from kindergarten through grade 12.
