ICS Paris is a place where the IB Programme meets French immersion, with one goal: to create an ideal international environment for our students. Welcome to a diverse and inclusive community dedicated to your academic success
Our ICS teaching teams are leaders in delivering the International Baccalaureate Diploma, a comprehensive education programme taught in more than 150 countries across the globe. ICS students are taught to thrive in a world that is rapidly changing, and they excel in their International Baccalaureate (IB) studies, allowing them to accept offers from many universities worldwide, including some of the world's top universities.
At ICS Paris, our students are at the centre of everything that we do and our International Baccalaureate curriculum provides the framework for developing their learning skills and empowering them to take ownership in their learning.
Our goal is to cultivate learners who will be capable of devising simple solutions for complex problems, global citizens who are capable of reading, interpreting and building the future. Our group-wide approach to teaching and learning will create learners who are true pioneers and change-makers. Our wider curricula will be constructed around the individual differences, and specific talents of our student body cultivating healthy competitiveness amongst ourselves and giving each student the opportunity to access their first-choice university.
Importantly, it is not necessary for students wishing to study for the IB Diploma to have completed the Primary Years Programme (PYP) or Middle Years Programme (MYP) at our international school ICS Paris. Indeed, we welcome students from a variety of school systems and curricula and, because of our truly international nature, our experienced teachers are experts at integrating students into the ICS Paris community.
From a child's first steps into the world of education, all the way through to higher education, ICS London delivers a best-in-class learning experience, with results to match. Universities in the UK, USA and more than 100 other countries accept the IB, many requiring a pass mark of 24 or 26 – comfortably below ICS London's average student score of 34.

A Connected School
ICS is focused on equipping students with the skills they will need for the world of tomorrow. To this end, The whole school works through digital platforms, including ManageBac and Toddle. These platforms are designed for student, teacher and parent access which helps keep everyone in our community informed. Asides from improving efficiency and organisation, it gives them the important experience of working in a digital environment which is more akin to what they will face at university and in the workplace once they leave ICS.
As part of this approach students from Grade 4 to Grade 9 will be given a 1:1 Apple iPad tablet to use in school. The tablets are set up for academic purposes which include all study material, textbooks, tests, practice booklets, worksheets, etc.
