Welcome to the ICS Website


In my meet so many parents across Brooklyn over the last few months, I've been struck by the incredible diversity of cultures and experiences you represent: You hail from Morocco, Israel and Ireland. Persia, Columbia, The Netherlands, The Caribbean, Japan, China, and Korea. Massapequa, California and Canarsie. You work as lawyers and doctors, architects, radio producers, jewelry designers, film makers, teachers, academic researchers, foundation directors and building contractors.

Wherever you land, your schools will clearly be lucky to have you and your kids as part of their community.  

Many of you already signed up on the prior version of our website and asked us to let you know how ICS is doing.

This new site offers us a lot more communications flexibility, and we hope allows us to keep you informed without cluttering up your email inbox.  (Of course if you like our emails, you can subscribe using the button to the right)

As we progress though the application process with the Charter School Institute at SUNY we will post news here.

For those who want yet more, you can learn more about my thoughts from some essays I've written about teacher quality,assessing studentsparent involvement the common core and algebra.

Stay tuned.
