From the Secondary Principal

Welcome to IICS!


Istanbul International Community School is an exceptional, forward thinking school ready to meet the needs of all students in partnership with the students themselves and their families.


We are proud to offer the IB Middle Years Program and the IB Diploma Program along with a High School Diploma program. Graduating from IICS offers endless possibilities.


IICS is nimble enough to offer a sound educational experience to our students whether it be via Distance Learning or our in class experience.  We believe our students learn better together while working face-to-face with each other, hence, we do all that is possible to keep students working together in class in a safe environment.


IICS focuses on the wellness of each child which builds their character in addition to the robust educational program offered here.  Part of a well-rounded education students receive here at IICS includes our extensive athletics and activities program in conjunction with our regional school group, CEESA.  Participating and enjoying after school activities is a sure fire way to find success in all aspects of the student experience.


Our Core Values of Inquisitiveness, Integrity, Caring and International Mindedness say a great deal about where our focus is at IICS. We value inquiry based learning and the building of character.  We also focus on caring for each other in our small community to make each other the best for the world. We view our school diversity as a strength where we learn to work together and build a stronger community with each other.  


Whether you come to IICS for the High School Diploma or the IB, you will enjoy the community and the experience.


You are most welcome to contact me with any questions. Welcome once again!
