Throughout its history, International College Spain (ICS) has championed a holistic education for international students and has been very successful at developing caring, informed global citizens and leaders of the future. ICS is a very happy school with a warm atmosphere that is palpable as soon as you enter the school grounds.
We are a very vibrant international community of more than 70 nationalities. International College Spain's school mission of ‘Learning Together for a Better World’, taken together with a strong emphasis on our group’s philosophy of ‘Be Ambitious’, places us in a unique position to positively impact the lives of our students and the local community. Central to our philosophy is the understanding that the next generation of global citizens needs a principled international vision which is truly encompassed by our thinking.
Being the only school in Madrid to offer the three IB programmes PYP, MYP and IBDP in English, International College Spain provides an educational programme where our classes are active and we learn together in a collaborative learning atmosphere. Academics at our school are a priority for us, as are personality development, communication skills, team-working abilities and critical thinking skills. This emphasis on whole-child learning in an international context is a cornerstone of our approach.
Our outstanding IBDP results and placements in premier universities worldwide, including Oxford, Cambridge and the Ivy League Universities, are a testament to our excellent delivery of the IB Programme and our dedicated students and staff.
While the parts of the campus might not be as modern as people might want, ICS is an incredible school in terms of both education and community. As a past graduate I can actually speak about the learning experience and quality of education, and I assure you it is a very good one. I was at ICS for 5 years and have no regrets.
