Upper School (Grades 6-12)
The Upper School at the International Community School of Abidjan (ICSA) consists of students in grades 6 - 12. Students in the middle school (grades 6-8) are acquiring important transitional skills in preparation for high school. Our middle school teachers take advantage of the natural curiosity, energy, and enthusiasm of the students while providing a supportive and nurturing learning environment. The curriculum focuses on basic skills, inquiry, individual creativity, and the development of good study skills and work habits. Students are encouraged to cooperate rather than to compete, and to share their special gifts and talents.
The high school (grades 9-12) program is university/college preparatory, and it encourages students to strive toward excellence and to acquire sensitivity toward the local and wider community. Offering a full range of courses that lead to the attainment of an American high school diploma, ICSA's high school program provides a solid educational foundation, which encourages students to become critical thinkers, problem-solvers, intellectually curious, and good communicators. In order to qualify for the ICSA high school diploma, students must complete a minimum of 24 credits. Our graduates gain admission to universities and colleges worldwide.
