We are getting ready for the 2019-2010 school year. If you are interested in your children attending ICS, here are important dates and information.
The application for NEW STUDENTS/FAMILIES is closed.
*Note that the application requires a parent email. If you want to apply for your child, and do not have an email, contact our registrar, Ms. Inye.
*Please note that ICS will be implementing a weighted lottery for the 2019-2020 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.
ICS is a tuition-free, public charter school. ICS openly enrolls students who reside within the DeKalb County School Districts, except incorporated Decatur and Atlanta school districts. Applicants will be admitted through a public lottery process to determine admission. ICS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability in admission to its programs, services, or activities, in access to them, in treatment of individuals, or in any aspect of their operations. ICS does not discriminate in its hiring or employment practices.
