*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.
