There is so much in which Immaculate Conception School can take pride. Dedicated teachers provide lessons that are innovative, challenging, and yes fun. The STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Math) initiative encourages independent learning and "learning by doing". Students find out that they can use math and science skills in everyday problem solving and exciting engineering challenges. From Pre-K through Grade 8, curious students engage in various types of engineering challenges throughout the year. Four well-equipped science classrooms and labs are in use daily for extensive hands-on learning by students in Pre-K through Grade 8. ICS is proud to be recognized by MAEOE (Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education) as a Maryland Green School, due to the school's emphasis on the importance of environmental literacy among all children. Students are excited when learning happens outdoors. What better way to observe the sky, weather, shadows, plants, insects and worms? Throughout the school, there is an atmosphere of community, whether students are doing service projects, worshiping at Mass, or friendly competition in the gym or on the soccer field.
