The International Community School cultivates curiosity, complex reasoning, problem solving, and global awareness in every student.
International Community School (ICS) is a choice school, serving students in grades 6-12 from the Lake Washington School District. ICS has a comprehensive academic program with an emphasis on visual and performing arts, humanities, and international studies. The complex curriculum emphasizes interconnected learning and depth of understanding. Focus Week and Camp Phoenix provide opportunities for experiential learning. Our small size and seven-year programs allow for strong long-term relationships between students and teachers. ICS was founded by parents and continues to have a strong foundation of community partnership and support.
