Student Life

READ Tutors

Through the Reading Excellence and Discovery Foundation, ICS 6th, 7th and 8th graders volunteer their time after school to help Pre-K and Kindergarten students learn to read. Following a standardized program, the older students help the fledgling readers work through a series of texts and lessons throughout the school year. All of the reading materials sequence through the ICS reading curriculum. Thanks to the READ program, the younger students have someone to look up to while the older students profit from the character-building experience of serving as a mentor.
