International Community School Singapore
“Rylee and Ayla have attended ICS for two years and are in Grade 4 and 1 respectively. From day one, our school experience has been a dream for us as a family. Both girls’ teachers were sensitive to the fact that they were homesick and feeling vulnerable. Their teachers Miss Richards and Miss Clark truly love our girls. The close-knit community makes it possible for families and teachers to share the life-changing experience of moving to a new country. The teachers are more invested in the students and the community than any others I have known. Once we found our footing, the girls started getting involved in extra-curricular activities such as Lego club, percussion club and treble choir, as well as sports like basketball, tee- ball and volleyball. The opportunity to learn Mandarin has also been a gift. Due to small class sizes, they get one-on-one instruction. The two things that stand out to us about ICS are its welcoming community culture – demonstrated by the entire staff and embraced by all ICS families – and the staff’s care for our children and their academic, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. When we learned that we would be moving to Singapore, finding the right school was a top priority. After researching a handful of schools, we were contacted by an ICS family who shared their personal experience at the school. We would highly recommend ICS to new families in Singapore who are searching for a school to call home. It’s a place where we can entrust our children’s holistic wellbeing to teachers and staff who truly care for them for who they are.”
