High School

Please allow me to welcome you to the High School at the International Community School Addis Ababa. Whether you are a current member of our community, a prospective student, parent, alumnus, or a visitor, I look forward to your visit, either online or on campus.

ICS is a global community of learners dedicated to serving students from early childhood to Grade 12. The High School is characterized by our “High Challenge – High Support” ethos, where we attempt to ensure that all students are offered an appropriate level of challenge in order to enable them to reach their potential. We strive to provide a learning environment where students can experience joy and vigor each and every day at school.

All members of our community follow the “ICS Way”, taking care of themselves, of others, and of this place. We foster the development of the attributes the ICS Learner Profile, modeled on the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile, encouraging parents, teachers, and students alike to be:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-Minded
  • Caring
  • Courageous
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

ICS High School students participate in a demanding and internationally recognized curriculum, culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in grades 11 and 12 and/or an ICS High School Diploma. Students partake in a vast array of extra-curricular activities, from sports, drama, and music to Model United Nations and community service programs. Students travel internationally to participate in school events such as choir, sports, Mathematics, drama, Art, and World Languages trips. Within Ethiopia, we take students beyond the walls of the classroom to engage them in service and learning opportunities in our Week Without Walls program.

Our High School students are engaged, energetic, and enthusiastic, and I am thrilled to work alongside them as they thrive at our school. Please feel free to peruse our website for more information about our program, or even better, to stop by for a visit. You are more than welcome at ICS.

Yours in education,

David Redmond
High School Principal
