STAMP

Student Taught Academic Mentoring Program

Each ICS middle school student gets a high school student as their mentor for the school year. They meet regularly during STAMP homerooms and do activities/lessons together. High school mentors (STAMPers) are encouraged to reach out to their middle school mentee (STAMPee) to check in. The goal is to help connect the middle and high school students and create a cohesive school environment. 

Camp 

We have a camp experience in the beginning of every school year.
