The Jakarta Post - Magazine - - Education -

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.
