Who We Are
International Community School (ICS) was founded in 1993 and offers an affordable, quality, character-based education. We provide our students with a dynamic, challenging, and holistic American-based college preparatory curriculum.
The ICS mission is “educating minds and transforming lives to impact the world for the glory of God”. We drive this mission through our core values: personal excellence, holistic education, caring community, and Biblical worldview.
We view every student as a gift from God entrusted to us by their parents. We are committed to educating students holistically in a nurturing environment that includes comprehensive and challenging opportunities in academics, creative arts, spirituality, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and service.
Eighty-five percent of our teaching faculty are North American. All our teachers hold current teacher credentials. The average length of stay is five years. Forty-eight percent of our faculty hold a Masters degree or higher.
Living in Singapore
Singapore is a country with a unique blend of Asian and Western influences. The downtown and local neighborhoods offer a variety of cultural and social opportunities for both families and singles. There are countless shopping centers, parks, gardens, museums, and art galleries throughout the city.
English is the language of business and education. From signboards, to services, to ordering food, everyone can communicate in English here on this sunny island.
The Public Transport System in Singapore is extremely well developed and reliable. There are trains, buses, and taxis that will take you wherever you need to go. Singapore is a relatively small country (with an area of 721.5 km²). You can go from one end of the country to the other in less than two hours!
Singapore's Changi Airport has been voted by air travellers as the World's Best Airport for the seventh consecutive year. As an international destination hub; it’s easy to explore surrounding countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Cambodia. The flights are relatively reasonable and due to the strong Singapore Dollar, you will get your money’s worth when you vacation in these neighboring countries!
We believe that the quality of our faculty is one of the most significant factors affecting student achievement. Therefore, we foster our teachers’ talents and encourage their professional growth. Our supportive leadership team empowers teachers, and empowered teachers communicate a passion for learning.
