The strength of our school lies in our qualified staff and our commitment to students. The majority of our teachers are recruited from the United States and Canada. Students, families and faculty find ICS to be a caring community where community participation is encouraged. At our school, students are equipped within the classroom to function beyond the classroom.

ICS's academic program is college preparatory and emphasizes community service and AP class enrollment. We presently require 40 hours of personal community service (PCS) as well as additional hours in our Serving-and-Learning-Together (SALT) trips each year. In addition, we offer twelve AP courses and continue to add to our offerings. Class rank for each student is based on a grade point average (GPA) that is weighted and cumulative for grades 9 through 12. The average GPA includes all courses taken at ICS.
