I would like to welcome you to our Secondary School here at IICS and share with you what makes our school so special…


At Istanbul International Community School, we work hard to facilitate exceptional learning for our children and we are committed to growing outstanding people alongside achieving outstanding academic results that will provide our learners with the best platform for success in their future communities. In Secondary School, this is recognisable as you will see learners taking an active role in their learning. They are not passive passengers at school and to ensure that they are truly ready to contribute positively to their future communities, our professional team of educators facilitates opportunities for them to grow as learners, leaders and outstanding citizens of the world.


At IICS we pride ourselves on having a dedicated, knowledgeable and world-class team. As a non for profit organization, we are able to ensure that more of our money is utilized for the recruitment and retention of some of the very best and most experienced teachers, counsellors and learning leaders in the world. Our class sizes ensure that our teachers can truly personalize our internationally recognized IB Middle Years Programme and IB Diploma Programme in a way that most schools just can not.


Our team fully understands the challenges and opportunities for both our middle schoolers and our high school learners and provides an exceptional level of support as they navigate through the rigorous and intellectually demanding IB World School programme. In our middle school, we strive to develop outstanding learners so that in our high school they can continue to achieve truly outstanding outcomes.


Through a strong Student Life and Leadership programme our learners experience a breadth of learning opportunities that extend far beyond our academic programme. Our enrichment courses, co-curricular activities, and service programmes provide rich and authentic learning opportunities where they can apply the skills and knowledge they learn through their subjects and develop the skills and attributes they will need to be able to contribute positively to their future communities after IICS.


I am proud to be leading and serving our Secondary school here at Istanbul International Community School and would encourage you to visit and see for yourself what a true international, values-based and non for profit IB World school looks like. I look forward to seeing you soon.
