    International Charter School is the only charter school in Rhode Island offering a dual language immersion program. This is a school that offers a unique opportunity for children to learn in two languages. The school is well run has great teachers and small class sizes. It is truly a warm and nurturing school where the teacher and administrators know all the children and care about them.

    The school provides such a calm and nurturing environment for our children that it is always jarring to walk into a non-responsive classroom school and hear all the yelling and disrepect going on and not just from students!

    My children attend the International Charter School. I feel that this is an excellent school and that it provides a great educational experience to all the children that attend. The staff is great and very caring. I believe that it is the parents reponsibility to communicate any issues and dislikes to the school directly to ensure that their personal concerns are heard. I can truly say that the staff go above and beyond their job duties and have helped my son and daugter immensely! Thank-you very Much ICS staff!

    The school is ok you notice that the score is a 2 out of 10. Some teachers are friendly to some of the students and parents. I feel that they need to improve the social interaction between the staff and parents. I feel very uncomfortable around many of the staff as if my african american children do not belong in their bilingual school. Again this is most not all staff. There are other parents who have expresed this as well their social skills need to improve- starting with the principal all the way down to the assitants.

    My son just graduated from ICS it was a glorious moment. He has attended ICS since kindergarden I can't imagine a better education anywhere. From the fantastic teacher parent connection to the dual language learning experience it was great and my son loved it. He was so much into this school we never wanted it to end. He was loved by everyone and he loved everyone there it was great. We only wished we could find another school for his 6 - 12 grade.

    I have graduated from this school and personally I think better than I did before because they were good enough to get me into Moses Brown School on a scholership. If this school is good enough to do that I feel that the Internation Charter School of Pawtucket can do anything it wants to do.

    This multi-langual school has been a wonderful experience for my daughter & myself & the teachers really try hard to keep the kids at the same level academically with the other schools. At no time once the school is better settled they will reach there goal at creating many other activities & this will keep parents & children happier. We all love the smaller class rooms & the individual attention our children are provided with. The only unfortunate problem is that we the parents would love to see the school grow to reach the 12th grade as Times Square Academy in Providence. We know the schools budget is tight but this would really make us all very happy.
