VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Along with partnering with parents in stewarding their children's educational development, the ICS encourages parents to work with us as volunteers.

Curriculum & Assessment

IPA offers a rigorous academic program with a focus on individual results and achievement.

CLUBS & PROGRAMS

Our goal with the clubs is for children to engage one another with shared interests in subjects outside of the curriculum they experience throughout the school day.

DRESS CODE & OTHER POLICIES

To ensure a successful educational experience for our students, ICS has established these dress codes and policies.

IPA teachers and administrators are excited to be participating this school year in the TAP System for Teacher and Student Advancement, joining ICMS faculty in this national program to improve teacher effectiveness.

Research indicates that the most important school-related influence regarding student success is having talented teachers in the classroom. As stated on the TAP System website, TAP was designed as a "comprehensive, systemic school reform model to address the challenges facing K-12 education." This approach is intended to "attract, retain, develop and motivate" teachers.

TAP training gives teachers:

  • Opportunities for professional development facilitated by expert master and mentor teachers, which focuses on students' learning needs and identifies strategies for optimum learning
  • Valuable time to collaborate with colleagues during the school day
  • Rigorous classroom evaluations to improve teaching skills
  • Opportunities for career advancement for talented teachers to develop as master or mentor teachers, allowing them to earn higher salaries while keeping them where they are needed most -- in the classroom
