DISCOVER OUR SCHOOL
Every student comes to ICB School on the first steps of a journey uniquely their own—already steered by individual strengths and personal passions, already shaped by innate talents and distinctive graces. At ICB, we honor all of each child, fostering inquisitive minds as well as joyful spirits, strong bodies, good characters, and empathetic hearts. Our approach is guided by the values of our GM, Dr. Yasser Dawa, education through doing, and joyful learning. Almost 100 years later, our continuing mission is to provide experiences that inspire an enduring enthusiasm for learning and to graduate young people of honor, faith, and wisdom. At ICB, our students learn to ask good questions and navigate abundant information, to develop imaginative ideas and innovative alternatives, and to forge consensus and connection within diverse groups. ICB students feel known, seen, and safe to take considered risks, learn from challenges, and carefully think through important questions of faith and citizenship. As a result, they develop the cheerful resilience to thrive—in their time with us, in college and career, and in life itself.
ICB ‘s purpose is learning through fun in a creative environment for young students, also embracing a safe and secure atmosphere to discover life through first-hand experience. We aim to promote a culture of learning and continuous growth for students and staff alike. We focus on the highest quality of instruction. When you step inside our classrooms you will find active, curious and creative learners who are able to solve problems individually and collaboratively.
Deep and personalized learning is at the heart of ICB. Our students learn to think critically, collaborate with peers from diverse cultural backgrounds, and use creativity to solve unique challenges as they discover their passion and purpose in school.
While English is our language of instruction, ICB is a truly international school. Together, we are building a caring, internationally minded community who truly have the potential to leave a positive mark on their world. In all of our programs, we encourage students to be courageous and explore new possibilities and opportunities.
Our students spend their days developing invaluable, life-long skills like critical thinking, languages and intercultural competencies across our early education, elementary and Middle & High school areas
Our all-encompassing goal at ICB is to help students become happy, experienced humans. Our classes are small – usually with fewer than 23 students – so that everyone receives individual attention and support. Beyond the classroom, collaboration and cooperation between staff, students, parents and the wider community is very important to us.
