New Charter School Will Open Its Doors to Local Officials, International Leaders, Parents, and Community-At- Large

After nearly three years of planning and development, the International Charter School of Atlanta (ICSAtlanta), the first and only dual-language immersion K-4th grade charter school in the state of Georgia, will hold its Inauguration and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on Monday, August 10 at 3:30pm in Roswell as local officials, dignitaries, and community members look on.

This unique school, which will welcome over 500 students on its first day of classes on Wednesday, August 12, will feature Spanish, French, German, and Mandarin language tracks. ICSAtlanta’s mission is to prepare students for a successful future by promoting academic excellence through rigorous instruction, bilingualism, the integration of cultural competency and respect throughout all aspects of the curriculum, which will enable students to make the most of their individual talents. “ICSAtlanta is filling a need for the education of tomorrow's leaders,” explains Pamela Spalla, ICSAtlanta Principal. “As the world grows smaller, it is imperative that we prepare our children for their role as international citizens.”

The internationally-focused charter public school is open to all students regardless of district/county. The school’s dual-language-immersion approach to education focuses on using the second language as a medium of instruction from an academic and cultural perspective. Spalla adds, “I am so excited to be a part of this groundbreaking undertaking and look forward to watching the growth of the school as well as the growth of the young people we are helping to shape."

Unlike other district charter schools, ICSAtlanta (located between exits 8 and 9 of off GA400) is open to all students regardless of what city or county they live in. Please see below for August 10th event details.

Location: 1335 Northmeadow Parkway, Ste. 100, Roswell, GA 30076
