The New Zealand School Jakarta is a progressive, growing international school situated in the heart of Kemang in South Jakarta. The school empowers students to grow themselves as strong, independent individuals by asking insightful questions, exploring disciplinary boundaries, and confronting conventional ways of thinking.
The school was founded in 2002 with the aim of bringing the well-rounded and progressive New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) to young learners of all nationalities living in Jakarta, Indonesia. As of October 2018, the school is under new ownership and management and benefiting from a new Board of Governors. With the passion and support of the new ownership, we are excited now to take our School to new heights.
The school offers education from early years up to Grade 8. Early years of student learn from actively investigating their world as they play. In play, there is no right way, no wrong way, no better or best way. There are many ways of being, thinking, creating, imagining, exploring, discovering and learning.
The New Zealand School Jakarta focuses on the individual child’s development, as that is the starting point of the learning and the knowledge, the skills, and the attitudes that the child brings to their experiences. While their primary school programme focuses on creating dynamic classrooms with engaging and fun activities, that encourages natural curiosity, ownership of their learning directions, and active learning for life while also catering for the whole person, teaching what children really need practically, and not merely curriculum expectations.
The school also opened Grade 7 and 8 for secondary students. The school applies the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC), which offers an inquiry-based holistic approach to education, promoted through different learning areas. The holistic nature of this curriculum offers a great foundation for our children and will set them up for success as they prepare for high school and university and seek to contribute to this world.
