Jogjakarta Community School
This international school in Indonesia was founded in 2012 to deliver a quality education programme for children aged two upwards. The school is a very special school with its own unique family oriented atmosphere. They align their teaching with the internationally recognised British National Curriculum and follow the Cambridge programme of study which lead to IGCSE and AS/A2 examinations. The school demands high standards of behaviour and academic success from all its children and they achieve this by providing a learning environment that is enjoyable, experiential and something children want to be part of.
Set in beautiful grounds in the city of Jogjakarta, the school prides itself on following an ethical and sustainable approach to how they operate. The school embeds good practice into all lessons, encourages families through initiatives such as Waste Free Wednesday, follows the '3R' system of reduce, recycle and reuse, and conducts community clean-up days. As a school they want to reduce their carbon footprint as well as support the local community. They strive to use environmentally compatible materials and resources that are sourced locally. The school is set in its own grounds with spacious green land for further development.
The school operates as a ‘not for profit’ organisation. The school is supported and governed by a parent and community elected Board of Governors. The school and Board are further supported by their Trustees, the original founders who operate through Yayasan Suluh Semesta.
