What the parents say

“You feel you are a part of the family.”

“Extremely comfortable international attitudes. Great positive atmosphere.”

“My daughter has gone from being nervous about school to loving it. The relationship she has which her teachers is unrivalled. She is desperate for me to get another contract in Madrid and not return to the UK. It has exceeded our wildest expectations.”

“We are very excited about ICS's collaboration with Juilliard and MIT and the opportunities that these partnerships provide to our children. We are very happy with the exceptional teachers that ICS is attracting.”
