Teaching in the languages of our community: English, español, and Português

We instill in our students the spirit of generosity and a commitment to care for others, think globally, and act locally.

Did you know that the Greek word “philanthropy” means “love of humankind”? At ICS, we envision this to mean the voluntary act of giving for the common good. Or in other words, giving = love. 

By extension, the voluntary act of giving becomes an act of empowerment. It is something to feel good about.

“My son just graduated from ICS - it was a glorious moment. I can't imagine a better education anywhere. From the fantastic teacher-parent connection to the dual language learning experience, it was great and my son loved it.”

— ICS parent

Creating a Culture of Giving

At ICS, we instill in our students the spirit of generosity and a commitment to care for others, think globally, and act locally. We embrace the concepts of caring, sharing, and giving through our Primary Years Programme (PYP) curriculum and the International Baccalaureate® (IB) learner profile.

We are proud to be the only school in Rhode Island to offer the IB Primary Years Programme. In the spring, our 5th-grade students participate in the PYP Exhibition, a community event that showcases their civic-mindedness and commitment to addressing real problems in our community and the world.
