Use of technology in the classroom

Throughout the JIS community, the school believes learning with technology should be dynamic and borderless, thriving in real and virtual spaces; expansive, empowering us with the skills and opportunities to creatively express our understanding in new dimensions; personal and compelling, occurring naturally as it does in other aspects of our lives; and purposeful, enriching our understanding of how and what we learn.

In the Elementary Schools, the school's philosophy is supported through 1:1 classroom access to 1:1 iPads in Grade 2-4 and 1:1 MacBooks in Grade 5. In the Middle and High Schools, students are issued a Macbook for learning at school and at home, enabling them to further develop the skills to confidently and competently create, collaborate and communicate in the digital realm.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

With five original students, Jakarta Intercultural School was founded by UN workers in 1951. These pioneers introduced relevant schooling in English for children of expats in the newfound Republic of Indonesia. From early days the school's international identity was clear. It was originally named the Joint Embassy School (J.E.S.) after its British, American, Australian and (then) Yugoslavian embassy partners. Just over a decade later, in 1978, J.E.S. became Jakarta International School and in 2014, Jakarta Intercultural School.

Teaching approach of the school

Instruction at JIS is in English. Curricula from EC I to Grade 10 are drawn from best international practices and standards. Students may elect to pursue a full International Baccalaureate diploma during their junior and senior years (Grades 11 and 12), or enroll in individual IB and/or Advanced Placement courses to ensure a program that enhances personal excellence.
