International Community School, Abu Dhabi
International Community School, Abu Dhabi is a private K-12 school located in Abu Dhabi. The school was first established in 1990 and caters to a large number of both international and local students.
The curriculum provided by International Community School Abu Dhabi is based on the standards of the “International Council of Schools”. This organisation does not seem to exist (as far as we could find), so we assume the school means the Council of International Schools, which has a number of UAE schools as members, although not ICS – at least the school is not yet on its member directory.
Students between Grades 1-6 follow an international curriculum designed for a broad range of students. From Grades 7-8 students follow a British National Curriculum which prepares them to make a choice, at the end of Grade 8, between the (British) IGCSE programme through Cambridge University (externally examined at the end of Grade 10); or the American High School Diploma (externally accredited by AdvancEd at the end of Grade 12).
Subjects offered through the school include Science, Mathematics, English, English Social Studies, Arabic, Arabic Social Studies, Islamic, French, Computing, Business Studies, Sociology, Art, Music, and Physical Education.
Facilities include a library equipped with English and Arabic material, two computer labs, a gymnasium (equipped for sports such as basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and badminton), science labs, a music room, art room, cafeteria and medical clinic.
Extra curricular activities at ICS include; art, drama, science club, basketball, soccer, volleyball, swimming, cooking, folk dancing, computer, internet, music, Quran recitation, needlework, board games, flower arrangement, handwriting, journalism, aerobics, French club, first aid course and karate.
The school does not publicly disclose its fees. However for the year 2010/11 fees ranged from 10,525 AED for KG1 to 23,025 AED for Year 12 according to the Abu Dhabi Education Council.
