The Independence Charter School (ICS) is a community-oriented educational institution for elementary school-age children located in historic Philadelphia-a city that from its very beginning has served as a magnet for peoples from around the globe.To meet its goals, the school draws heavily on the resources available in Philadelphia- the museums, historic landmarks, businesses, schools, parks, communities, and families. 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. And, it does so while reaffirming our commitment to the importance of the existence of vital, strong public education to the city and the nation.
