Bringing French to ICS

We are happy to announce that we are expanding our language offer. The reasons for learning a new language are varied, but the importance of learning foreign languages is universal.  Language learning helps to develop a respect and understanding of other languages and cultures. The ability to communicate in more than one language is essential to the concept of an international education.

From September 2017, there will be a choice of 3 languages for children aged 3 – 18.  In addition to Spanish and Mandarin we will offer French to all children as an Additional Language.  Students who already speak Spanish, Mandarin or French will need to choose another language to study at ICS.  

If you are interested in having your child take French next academic year, please contact your child's classroom teacher.  We will give you several reminders and opportunities before the end of the school year to notify us if you would like your child to change to French.
