The Institute for Collaborative Education (I.C.E.) is a small, diverse community of approximately three hundred and forty students in grades six through twelve. The atmosphere is warm and personal, and the work is challenging. Teachers make use of both progressive and traditional teaching techniques in order to effectively reach and educate all children. I.C.E. graduates from middle school and high school must demonstrate proficiency in math, science, humanities, Spanish, and technology by meeting standards on particular assignments in each of these areas. Student performance is measured through careful evaluation of in-depth projects. All students may participate in the after-school program. Upper grade students may take college courses while at I.C.E. I.C.E. graduates know how to learn, ask questions, evaluate information, and be effective, ethical participants in a global society.
