Nurturing youngsters with 21st century learning skills
North Jakarta Intercultural School:
North Jakarta Intercultural School (NJIS) is a dynamic educational institution that believes all students can learn and thrive in a rich educational environment. We continually explore the latest educational theories and practices to enable students to reach their full potential. By applying best practices, we continuously reassess NJIS to ensure that we are able to provide an environment conducive to learning and growth.
NJIS is open for enrollment of students from diverse cultural backgrounds. It is our mission to prepare all students to succeed in higher education and excel in all aspects of life. In a nurturing environment, we provide a challenging curriculum, meaningful instruction, and a variety of learning experiences to meet students’ needs.
NJIS has adopted the Common Core State Standards. This provides for clear and consistent guidelines for what every student should know and be able to do, from Kindergarten through Grade 12. The standards were drafted by experts and teachers from across the United States and are designed to ensure that students are prepared for today’s entry-level careers, freshman-level college courses, as well as workforce training programs. The NJIS School Board has supported, approved, and financed the purchase of new materials as well as state- of-the-art laboratories (Chemistry, Biology and Physics) throughout the school with well-articulated goals and objectives so that all students are meeting stringent standards.
Our faculty is committed to students and their learning. They recognize individual differences in our students and, through 21st century instruction and lesson design, provide learning experiences that meet the needs and abilities of all students. Our teachers have expert understanding of their subject matter and continually try to find ways to link taught subject matter to other disciplines. In addition, our teachers work diligently to improve students’ skills in solving real-world problems so that they are better prepared for the 21st century.
We truly take pride in NJIS and in the rich and rewarding experiences that we offer our students in every classroom.
