    YCIS Prepares Students for University and Beyond

    Naomi, Year 13, Century Park Campus

    YCIS, home to students and teachers of varying cultures and backgrounds with many different perspectives, has been my educational platform for nearly 13 years. Exposing to traditions and religions from all across the world from a very young age through close integration within the school community, I have been able to grow up with the mindset that I should accept others and their differences, that I should not fall for stereotypes of various cultures presented in the media, and that I should keep an open mind.

    Fun for Charity at the Zombie Run

    Spencer, Year 12, Century Park Campus

    Charity is tightly wound into both our school motto and our history as a school community. Creative fundraising activities including water balloon tosses with teachers, “student helper” auctions, and homework coupon sales have become highlights of my YCIS school years so far. This year, two of our IB classmates, Floyd and Dongho, continued the charity spirit by pioneering a memorable but frighteningly original charity event called the “Zombie Run”.
