ICHS GRADING POLICIES
At International Community High School, we believe in a transformative approach to education known as mastery-based learning. Unlike traditional grading systems that focus solely on test scores and letter grades, mastery-based learning emphasizes a deeper understanding of the subject matter. It is a student-centered approach where the focus shifts from completing assignments to truly mastering the material. Through continuous assessment, feedback, and targeted instruction, students progress at their own pace, ensuring a solid foundation before moving on to more advanced concepts. Mastery-based learning empowers students to take ownership of their education, fostering a love for learning that extends beyond the classroom. Our goal is to nurture lifelong learners who are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to succeed in an ever-evolving world.

ICHS uses a program called Jumprope for keeping track of student's grades, attendance, student biographical information, and posting updates on student's behavior and progress.
