Curriculum Standards

The International Community School of Addis Ababa uses an international, standards-based curriculum designed to support our students and teachers with the best educational practices in the world.  The educational program culminates with the rigorous, internationally recognized International Baccalaureate Diploma.  

ICS continually seeks to improve its curricula by reflecting on its strengths and weaknesses and implementing the strongest developments in education.  

Curricular units are planned using the Understanding by Design framework, a backwards design model in which the curriculum is mapped to ensure an engaging and cohesive curriculum, with a steady progression from EC-Grade 12.
