We take a look at how the International Community School (Singapore) sets its students up for lifelong success through a rigorous American curriculum.
As parents, we know just how important it is that our children are looked after at school, both academically and on a personal level. In the last 30 years of educational excellence, International Community School (Singapore) (ICS) has been providing guidance for its students’ unique journeys to achieving both personal and academic success through a rigorous American curriculum. Read on to find out more about its program.
A Holistic Education At International Community School (Singapore)
With a rich history of providing a comprehensive Christian-American education that is known for its rigour and challenge, ICS focuses on students’ academic and personal excellence, forming a biblical worldview and building a caring community. Its faculty is made of highly experienced and passionate educators who are committed to helping students grow academically and socio-emotionally.
ICS students consistently exceed the global average in MAP assessments for Math, Reading, Language usage and Science, plus it has an excellent counselling department with dedicated socio-emotional counsellors for students in all grades.
What’s more, in 2022, ICS was awarded the ‘Gold Winner for Student Wellbeing’ as well as the ‘Best Small School in Singapore’ title by the Singapore Education Awards.
Setting Students Up For Lifelong Success
ICS holds the philosophy that education is a journey that lasts a lifetime; it ensures that its students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and values to succeed in an ever-changing world. It has small classroom sizes and low teacher-student ratios to ensure that each of its passionate teachers is able to give every member of its diverse student body (representing 29 nations!) a high-quality education in a safe and nurturing environment. It also has an English-language Learning program that provides additional support to those who need it.
Aiden, a Grade 12 student at ICS shares his experience:
“I feel safe to be myself at ICS. Being in a smaller international school makes it very easy to develop relationships with teachers and peers. They’re able to assist with any personal or academic troubles you may be dealing with. This is especially helpful within the school’s AP curriculum, as teachers are able to provide one-on-one assistance for college-level courses when needed. After studying at this school for nearly eight years, it’s safe to say that I don’t regret any of my time spent here.”
