History of the International Children’s School Inc.

ICS was established in 1989. Founder, Ms. Sadie Khouri-Roitman with a Master’s Degree in Education along with a Master’s Certificate in Education Administration began this undertaking with the firm belief that some existing day care centers, pre-schools, were inadequately preparing children for the rigors of school and the challenges of adulthood.

Ms.Khouri-Roitman discovered that many schools had little to no organization. Children readily accept knowledge and information when it is presented in an exciting dramatic manner. Teachers get excited to teach during every minute of their day regardless of the topically method is stimulating even for parents, or other teachers watching. By making learning exciting and fun, performance-related stress can be greatly reduced. Additionally, the child who learns to associate achievement, self confidence with pleasure, can be expected to function more successfully as an adult.

A second and equally problematic factor which most centers or schools agree on and is exhibited by some daycares, pre-schools and nurseries schools is a general lack of quality supervision. The unfortunate fact is that some centers or schools provide little more than mass baby-sitting services. In such settings, precious little care or attention is given to the individual child. Emotional and intellectual development suffers greatly in environments of this type.

We are proud to say that our curriculum has been validated due to the research done by the highly renowned New York based “Carnegie Corporation” and it’s Task Force on Learning in the Primary Grades. They conducted studies on the state of the American Educational System back in 1996 and we suggest that all parents read their findings. The principle discoveries from the highly educated groups ranging from Scientists, Educators to Child Psychologists , is that the educational system in the United States needs to improve dramatically in order to cope with the changes of the fast paced world we live in and to help meet the demands of a culturally diverse society of the Twenty first Century. There has been evidence that a person’s propensity to learn all subjects whether it be Academics, Foreign Languages, Music, Sports is especially significant during the child’s formative years…

At the International Children’s School, Young students are nurtured and cared for. In the years since its inception, ICS has consistently provided child care and development services which are recognized and lauded by parents and educators alike. Our students scored high on nationally recognized tests .Past parents and grandparents have come back to share with us how proud they are of their children and they conclude it was due to their early years spent at ICS and the school’s exceptional programs. We have former students now entering Ivy League Colleges throughout the United States and may go on to become great leaders in our global world.

*News* We are happy to announce Mounir Khouri as a recent addition to our team in the field of business consulting. He has more than 25 years of experience and is highly regarded in the field of business.

Parent's Testimonials

"This school has been the best experience for my son and for us as parents. My husband and I are from high level academics. We were looking for an educational environment for our son and he is so happy here. The Principal is very organized and a strong leader. She has a difficult task in carefully choosing the best person to teach in this type of learning school. Teachers today are not trained to teach spelling, Reading, writing, Math etc. to young children as young as age 3. You can see her devotion to the children at school. They have rules but as a parent I am so pleased to have my child in a safe, kind, and organized atmosphere. When we come to pick him up after a long day, We find ourselves running around the classroom in attempts to get him to come with us, and watched several other parents doing the same. "
