The International School of Communications embraces a world vision, valuing the perspective and talents unique to each individual in our world and community. We welcome all students, from those who seek rigorous college-prep education to those whose goal is immediate post high school employment. We seek to produce self-directed learners who have developed the problem-solving skills and attitudes necessary to keep pace in a rapidly changing world. We believe that every student should be directly involved the the planning and execution of learning goals and outcomes. We recognize that quality education consists of many elements, including the following: academic development, a program of physical fitness, activities to foster a sense of responsibility toward community, the formation of friendships including those across cultures; and a code of conduct which instills friendships including those across cultures; and a code of conduct which instills self respect, self discipline, honesty, and appreciation of individual differences.
The International School of Communications depends on the leadership of its students. Learn to analyze problems, formulate questions, conduct research based on those questions, and develop solutions by applying what you learn. Through projects and problem-based learning across content areas in the the ISC, you will develop skills in self-direction, problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and communication-skills that we desperately need to protect our future. The teachers' goal is to be progressively less necessary. They give us the freedom to make our own decisions. Whether you're a vocal leader or lead by example, it's the end result that determines success or failure. In the ISC we make leaders-people who are prepared to step into a college class, the work force, or the military, and succeed. The International School of Communications is on the rise. Brace yourself because you'll see first-hand many success stories told, legacies left, and young adults ready to challenge the world. That's the beauty of the International School of Communications.
*** AN IMPORTANT REMINDER ABOUT ATTENDANCE ***
We wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of the Marysville School District's attendance policies.
Washington State’s Becca (attendance) law requires that school personnel verify the reasons for student absences. This is a check on truancy, student health, and most of all a safety precaution. Parents are required to notify the school within three days of an absence either by email, note, or phone call. All absences are unexcused until verified...
Excused absences can be granted for the following reasons: illness/health condition, school-approved activities, religious purposes, family emergency, school disciplinary actions.
*** On rare occasions a family may plan a vacation during the school year. These absences will be unexcused unless they receive prior approval from the school principal.
We ask that families looking to take vacations, please have your student complete the Arranged Absence Form that is located next to the office.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Our hearts are with our students, parents, and community members.
