We are getting ready for the school year. If you are interested in your children attending ICS, here are important dates and information. If you know someone who is, please share this with them.
We are accepting online applications from January 8 to March 2. (This is for new students only. Details about returning students and siblings will be communicated soon).
Tours of the school will be given January 26 & 31 at 9:15 am.
Open House: Saturday, February 3 at 10:00 am. Families will learn about the ICS Mission & Goals, IB Curriculum, Community Building, Parent-Teacher-Staff Organization ( IPTSO ), and can meet and greet teachers & staff.
The public lottery will take place March 9 at 1:00 pm.
Please note that ICS will be implementing a weighted lottery for the 2018-2019 school year. The ICS mission states, “The International Community School is an International Baccalaureate World School that educates refugees, immigrants and local children, and provides a rigorous and holistic education in an intentionally diverse community of mutual learners.” One of our goals is to maintain an equal balance between students who are refugees and immigrants and students who are born in the United States. Since a majority of our students who are refugees and immigrants are part of the ESOL program, we amended our charter contract, which was approved by DeKalb County and the Georgia Department of Education, to ensure that 50% of our students qualify for ESOL. Thus, students who speak another language at home, who are highly likely to qualify for ESOL services, will be given preference in our upcoming lottery in March. Please send Principal Chad Velde-Cabrera, or Inye Durham, our Registrar, an email if you have any questions.
