Inner-City School equip children in the inner-city with values, academic skills, and self esteem necessary for success throughout their educational careers.
Changing the odds for children. Several program strategies are employed to bring about academic success and personal character development in our students through early literacy, parent involvement, positive role models, cultural relevance, student stability and safety, community involvement, and positive character development.
ICS helps disadvantaged students reach their potential both academically and personally.
The school began with phonics and math based preschool program and grew by one grade level each year until it reached the fifth grade.
ICS outgrew its space at 2609 Lawrence Street and relocated to 3560 Josephine Street.
The integration of faith-based principles into the curriculum mirrors the culture in which ICS students live.
Historically, people of inner-city have looked to church leaders for guidance and leadership in solving their social ills.
The urban pastors who helped found the school and who are still active as board members reflect this relationship with people in the city.
While Bible teaching and chapels are part of our curriculum, students may be removed from these activities at the parent's request.
