Average school

3.6/ 5

There are not many options for international schools in Madrid. We decided for ICS but not 100% satisfied with the experience. There wasn’t a big offer of sports of activities and we missed a bit of rigour.

School with good potential, overpriced for the gaps we experienced (2009)

3/ 5

Our experience was from 2009. Though a great school for International short-stay students, due to its openness, flexibility, welcoming….for longer-staying students we found that it lacked a solid base. We were disappointed with foreign languages other than Spanish and English, the handling of high-capacity students, and the lack of academic rigor (leading to a class graduating with a missing subject). As a general rule, teachers’ level was fairly high but we did have cases of serious underperformance.
