International Community School (ICS) is the only school in West Africa that is a member of Round Square. Round Square is a worldwide association of schools in five continents sharing unique goals. The Round Square approach promotes six ideals of learning: Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service. These are incorporated into the curriculum and in everyday interaction with the students to help reach their mission of a holistic integration of academic, social, physical, spiritual and moral training. ICS believes that education is a mission and not an occupation. 

Changemaking Initiatives

  • The teachers in ICS are exposed to extensive training in the school community and abroad and share their experiences not only with fellow teachers but also with schools they have partnered with in the neighboring communities.
