We value beauty not just in its literal sense but for its wider meaning, as a sense of aesthetics that encompasses numerous areas. From the beauty of a space designed to welcome young students and inspire in them the same approach to things, to a continuous regeneration of beauty and to the aesthetic sense of knowledge. Because the learning and development process of knowledge runs hand in hand with the desire to produce something that other people enjoy and that can therefore be shared. It is a case of educating the eye to recognise beauty and the mind to imagine new forms of beauty.
ICS International School's value par excellence, borrowed from the design world and which is the basis of our whole education system. Each learning activity is underpinned by the phases that mark out the project: understanding the problem, asking the right questions, analysis of the external objective context and the emotional and subjective personal context, up to identifying possible answers and solutions.
CROSS-CULTURAL INTERACTION AND TRANSVERSALITY
A fundamental part of ICS International School philosophy is the role of context: from the classroom at school, from the family, from the local area, to the whole city: the entire area where the student lives can be a place for exchange, sharing and enrichment. In the analysis and interpretation of data, transversal information gathered from other contexts is essential. Knowledge is not schematically boxed into rigid categories. Learning moves from one subject to another in a holistic exploratory process.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND HIS OR HER DIFFERENCES
At ICS International School we strongly believe in individuals and their resources. We believe in the strength of cultural differences as well emotional and personality differences. A person's style is born from their own diversity, which is permeated by context and with which they can give an answer. Giving students the right amount of time needed to dedicate to their research, to allow experiences and knowledge to settle, means cultivating individuals' talents, giving them the opportunity to grow away from homogenisation and towards individuality.
THE ITALIAN WAY OF LIFE
Internationality with its roots in Italian culture, excellence that is evident in a unique way of being, of thinking and of doing, that comes from the synergy between tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and creative genius. Experiencing Made in Italy products, whether these are tangible like food, clothes, objects, or intangible like cinema, music or art, completes the international experience. ICS International School students will be the future ambassadors of Italian culture in the world, free from language barriers and open to discussion.
