English schools in Asia
The mission of the North Jakarta International School is to provide its students with the opportunities, resources, instruction, and environment to pursue academic and personal excellence through an international school curriculum with a U.S. orientation, and to help them form the basis from which to become life-long learners and productive, involved citizens in a changing, global society.
North Jakarta International School is located on a 5-acre site in Kelapa Gading, a modern secure residential community in the northeastern part of Jakarta. Currently, there are 338 students enrolled, representing 25 different nationalities and an age span from 4 to 15 years. NJIS reflects and is responsive to its international community. In fact, we like to think of ourselves as a mini United Nations. Our headmaster and our teachers put in a lot of effort into creating the special atmosphere that exists at NJIS. The student-teacher relationships are very close. We have two sections for each grade level, except for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten.
NJIS was established in January 1990, and later licensed by the Indonesian Ministry of education to provide schooling for the children of expatriates residing in Jakarta. It is recognized by the Ministry of Education as a Yayasan (not-for-profit social foundation) and operates as an independent, not for profit, co-educational day school for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 10. A six-person Board of Governors oversees it. NJIS is a member of both the East Asia Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS), based in the Philippines, and the European Council of International Schools (ECIS), based in the United Kingdom. NJIS is fully accredited by ECIS.
