About ICS Branch 1 and 4: English Curriculum Schools

International Community School Branch 1 and 4 are English National Curriculum schools centrally  located in the heart of Abu Dhabi Island. Branch 1 is entering into its 7th year, whilst Branch 4 is preparing for its first year. Both campuses strive to provide a student-centric, values-driven education to our students in a nurturing environment where they can develop the necessary skills to thrive in the modern global community.

The ICS community is especially enriched by its eclectic mix of staff and students hailing from over 30 different countries. Many of our students bring a rich Arabic heritage with them to the school. As an inclusive school ICS prides itself on its inviting and supportive environment promoting the values of tolerance, care, honesty, respect, resilience and integrity at the heart of our student-centred curriculum.

Branch 1 had been graded as ‘Good’ by Irtiqaa in its last 2 local authority inspections.
