The pedagogical method of ICS
ICS Milan teaches creativity, responsibility, respect, diversity, compassion and shared values. Students are invited to develop a sound knowledge base and to reflect on and reassess their surroundings from a variety of perspectives.
Our system fosters a balanced development of different personalities. It combines the importance of rules with a sense of expressive creativity, challenge and imagination, and it also provides the necessary tools for becoming "masters" of our own abilities.
Our teaching approach stimulates each developmental and learning phase of every child by placing respect for others and ourselves at its centre. It also encourages students to develop interconnection between the different areas of knowledge.
Since 2017 ICS Milan is a proud member of the Globeducate network, which operates in more than 51 international schools in Europe, Americas and Asia. It is one of the four largest private school groups in the world with international presence, and the largest of its kind on the European continent with more than 25.000 students from over 60 different countries, and growing rapidly. Globeducate mission to prepare each student to become a global citizen that can shape the world is well-aligned to the student-centered approach at ICS Milan.
