“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6(ESV)
Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his school career: Junior High School. AtIPEKA INTEGRATED CHRISTIAN SCHOOL (IICS), we believe that building a life foundation in truth based onGod’s Word will always remain the priority. We pray that every single soul that God has entrusted us with willgrow not only in knowledge but also in his relationship with God.
Junior High School is known as a crucial time for children, in which they transition to adulthood. While thistime could be an exciting experience of growth and independence, it could also be a pretty challenging timefor teens as they face problems, like self-esteem, peer pressure, hormonal changes, academic pressures,and others.
Being fully aware of what your child might experience or encounter during these years, we come up with aunique design of education for our Junior High School. We understand that at this stage of life, teens need abalance between academics and social life. With their excessive amount of energy, they start to enjoy exploring new things in between their studytime. With this in mind, we offer a combination of rigorous and robust academic curriculum with a dynamic extra-curricular activities wrappedin our “House Program”. That way, we hope that we can accommodate your children’s needs of knowledge and experience.
