About Us

The ICS Primary School starts from year 1 and ends at year 6. Students in year 1 are typically aged 5/6 years of age. Students in year 6 are typically aged 10/11years. At the Primary School we believe that activity-based and fun lessons, combined with a good blend of action-packed, creative, service-based and varied extra-curricular activities form the basis of a great education.

In the Primary School, the subjects offered are Mathematics, English, Science, Social Studies (Global Perspective), ICT, French, Art, and Physical Education.

For Mathematics, English, and Science, the Cambridge Primary Programme provides the curriculum framework. It develops skills, knowledge and understanding in young learners. This curriculum provides all the necessary guidance, material, and training for classroom teaching and learning.

Art, ICT, French, Religious Education, and Physical Education are based on the British National Curriculum. This curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students at the school.

Social Studies is based on the International Primary Curriculum. This curriculum promotes great learning, great teaching and great fun in a framework of different themes that children easily identify with.

At the Primary School we believe that children learn best when they have fun. Based on this simple idea, teachers are trained to deliver lessons that invite children to participate actively, express their opinions and facts eloquently, and develop skills and understanding effectively

History

Since its inception in 2000, the International Community School Ghana has committed itself to educating and developing the young people entrusted to our care by our diverse community of families. Our values of hard work, respect for one another, our child-friendly environment, and teamwork guides our daily processes. Our goal is to be a model International School where teachers, staff, students, and parents work together to create and foster an educational center of excellence. We welcome all who share our ethos and IDEALS (Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership, and Service). This is a commitment beyond academic excellence to personal development, responsibility, service to God and mankind, a challenge of self, and international mindedness and understanding. AKWAABA!

The International Community School, Ghana was founded by Dr. & Mrs. Yeboah upon their return from the USA. The Yeboahs had come back to Ghana after having spent seven years studying and living in the USA. Having difficulties finding a school that in their view was a good fit for their children transitioning from a good suburban school in the USA, they decided to start one themselves.

International Community School (ICS-G), formally opened its doors to the public with seven students in January 2000. ICS-K now has over 1000 students from Preschool through High School. We pride ourselves in our rich cultural diversity, with our student body consisting of learners from more than 30 different nationalities. A student’s learning environment is important, and ICS provides the perfect environment with our beautiful 20-acre campus outfitted with sizeable classrooms, well-stocked libraries, art rooms, computer labs, and comfortable boarding houses, amongst many other facilities.

Excellence in education is our essence. ICS-G is an independent, co-educational institution that follows the British System of Education, which we believe provides the resources necessary for academic rigor, as well as the necessary skills of inquiry, creativity, and initiative to produce a well-rounded learner. Our school is a University of Cambridge International School and is therefore accredited to run both the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programme and A-Level programme at the High School level. Both of these programs are externally moderated by the University of Cambridge, UK. Our graduates attend top universities around the world, such as Brown University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA, The University of Stirling in the UK, amongst many illustrious others.

ICS-G is also a regional member of Round Square, a worldwide association of top schools on five continents. Round Square promotes a commitment, beyond academic merit, to personal growth and responsibility through service to others, and through practical, experiential learning. Round Square is governed by a Board under the Presidency of His Majesty King Constantine of Greece. Patrons of the organisation include Canadian human rights activist Craig Kielburger and the late Nelson Mandela. For more information please visit www.roundsquare.org
