Beyond Measure

I.C.E. is excited to announce the screening of Beyond Measure.The film is generating a lot of buzz and features both I.C.E. students and our principal Pete!

In Beyond Measure, we find a revolution brewing in public schools across the country.

These are schools that see critical thinking, communication, exploration, experimentation, collaboration, and creativity as the key to good education.
