ICS Guiding Statements
The International Community School in Amman, Jordan (ICS) believes that any highly successful organisation, including world-class schools, must have at their heart a clear set of Guiding Statements, rooted in strong core values and in pursuit of a powerful Mission and Vision.
The International Community School provides a personalised, high quality education, drawing on the best of British and international practice. We will continue to nurture and invest in an inclusive and diverse learning community of happy, confident and creative global citizens.
Where every child can thrive
We are honest and trustworthy and take responsibility for our actions
We strive for excellence through hard work, resilience, perseverance and a positive attitude.
We are open minded, global citizens who appreciate, celebrate and honour other cultures, beliefs and worldviews.
We are kind, caring and supportive of one-another and generous towards those less fortunate in our community and society.
We are fair-minded and treat everyone as we would like to be treated.
We work collaboratively and do our very best to ensure everyone at our school feels included, safe and valued.
We are adventurous and creative about our learning and believe in the importance of taking risks and stepping outside of our comfort zone.
In alignment with the social media age, we have also distilled the school’s strategic goals into three #hashtags, in order to focus every member of the ICS community on what makes us special, and what we are trying to achieve.
We are proud pioneers - fierce advocates of a discovery-based, inquiry-led, child-centred education - and we are determined to do things differently.
