Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The German School Jakarta is a “School of Encounter” and one of Indonesia’s oldest and finest international schools — open for students of all ages, nationalities and cultures — which provides holistic world-class education from preschool to highschool diploma.

Teaching approach of the school

The aim of the German curriculum (Deutsches Internationales Abitur, DIA) is for students to become capable of studying in all disciplines and to develop into strong, self-confident, independent personalities. That is why the German curriculum is more comprehensive up to the graduation compared to other curricula (e.g. IB, Cambridge). There is no too-early-specialisation, which is negative from an educational science perspective.
