ICS emphasizes multi-culturalism for even the youngest of students.It incorporates modern communications and computer technology to facilitate dialogues with, and learning from, children around the world. In sum, ICS imbues all students with a greater appreciation for, and understanding of, a diverse array of cultures and ways of thinking and living through an active, hands-on, multidimensional approach to learning and development.
