The school enrolls expatriate students whose parents (or at least one parent) have a foreign passport and a valid work permit and residence permit. (The Ministerial Decree of May 2, 2000 authorizes NJlS to enroll Indonesian students who meet the criteria established by the National Ministry of Education.) For a student to be eligible, the school administration must agree that the student has a reasonable expectation of academic and personal success within the NJlS program. Students must reside with their parents or legal guardians in greater Jakarta. NJIS may deny students based on disciplinary grounds.
NJIS is North Jakarta’s only International Baccalaureate Continuum school. This means that NJIS offer the Primary, Middle, and Diploma Programs of the International Baccalaureate – the gold standard of international school education. NJIS is also the only school in the area to be accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) based in the United States. This accreditation will help to give your child access to some of the best universities in North America and around the world. It also lets you know that your child is enrolled in a school that meets exactly the same standards as the most prestigious private schools in the US and around the world.
Academic standards are high at NJIS, and we believe that students learn best when they have :
– Mastery: Students learn best when teachers help them visualize their growth and improvement from week to week and year to year.
– Autonomy: Students learn best when they are given opportunities to develop independence and when they feel that they have some control over their learning process.
– Purpose: Students learn best when they can see the purpose of their learning and when the projects they engage in have real-life impact, making the world a better place.
As our school vision states, “We develop future leaders with the wisdom and passion to enact change.”
NJIS believes in discovering excellence in every child, and we do this through a process of individualised learning. Our core strength is our teachers who are all fully qualified and passionate professionals in their field. All of our teachers are certified from their home country and more than half of our expatriate faculty hold a Masters or Doctorate degree.
No other school in Jakarta can match the quality of our teachers and no other school offers the same level of attention to your child’s needs. Part of our educational philosophy is that class sizes are kept small, which allows your child to get the kind of focused and direct attention from teachers that will allow them to bloom.
