ICS 5 Latest News

Dear Parents:

I have great news to report!  Icahn 5 did it again!  Our students achieved the highest percentages of 3’s and 4’s when compared to the neighboring schools.   Icahn 5 3rd and 4th grade students outscored their District 11 peers by an average of 44.3%.  Icahn 5 3rd grade students posted a difference of 47%, while 4th grade students bested their District 11 peers by 41.6%.  I am sure you would agree in saying that these are outstanding results.

These results would not be possible without your partnering with us.  Please continue to closely monitor your child’s education by ensuring that homework is done daily, exams are checked and signed, and that your child attends school on a daily basis.

Icahn 5 Test Results:

Grade 3:

ELA: 69.6%

Grade 4:

Grade 3:

Again, thank for believing in us and enrolling your child in Icahn Charter School 5.  We look forward to a successful 2014-2015 school year.
