About IICS

Our children’s education is something none of us is willing to compromise in order to work overseas. We all want the best academic opportunity.

IICS was one of the first schools in the world and the first in Turkey to be authorized by the International Baccalaureate to provide all three IB programs. In addition to being one of the oldest international schools in the world, Istanbul International Community School (IICS) is among Europe’s most noteworthy.

Founded in 1911 to educate the children of the Robert College faculty, the school has maintained a century-long tradition of academic excellence. IICS is an independent, co-educational day school, offering a full IB program from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 for international students (holders of non-Turkish passports).
