Our students are inheriting a rapidly changing world in which the discovery, assimilation, understanding, and management of new information will be vital to them. At North Jakarta Intercultural School our goal is to reach beyond a content-oriented curriculum and to provide students with the academic skills and intellectual confidence to apply knowledge to new problems and situations. We aim to continue our 24 years of tradition: Excellence in international education for Indonesia and Jakarta.
The standards are:
According to the best available evidence, the mastery of each standard is essential for success in college, career, and life in today’s global economy. With students, parents, and teachers all on the same page and working together toward shared goals, we can ensure that students make progress each year and graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college, career, and life. The standards focus on core concepts and procedures starting in the early grades, which gives teachers the time needed to teach them and gives students the time needed to master them.
The standards draw on the most important international models, as well as research and input from numerous sources, including educators from kindergarten through college, state departments of education, scholars, assessment developers, professional organizations, parents and students, and members of the public.
Because their design and content have been refined through successive drafts and numerous rounds of state feedback, the standards represent a synthesis of the best elements of standards-related work in all states and other countries to date.
For grades K-8, grade-by-grade standards exist in English language arts/literacy and mathematics. For grades 9-12, the standards are grouped into grade bands of 9-10 grade standards and 11-12 grade standards.
While the standards set grade-specific goals, they do not define how the standards should be taught or which materials should be used to support students. States and districts recognize that there will need to be a range of supports in place to ensure that all students, including those with special needs and English language learners, can master the standards. It is up to the states to define the full range of supports appropriate for these students.
No set of grade-specific standards can fully reflect the great variety of abilities, needs, learning rates, and achievement levels of students in any given classroom. Importantly, the standards provide clear signposts along the way to the goal of college and career readiness for all students.
The Pre-K and Kindergarten program is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Pre-K and Kindergarten classes are located on the ground floor of our state-of-the-art building. Our environment of bright and spacious classrooms, activity rooms, and play spaces allow for children to learn, inquire, and develop. We also have a library with a large collection of developmentally appropriate books and a music room for our Kindergarten students to participate and engage in music, rhythm, motor, and language programs.
In a positive learning environment, highly qualified, experienced teachers guide students in developing confidence, self-discipline, intellectual independence, initiative, and community responsibility.
The Lower School curriculum provides a solid foundation in all learning areas: language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, Bahasa Indonesia, Mandarin, fine arts, technology and physical education. The core curriculum is based on a sequential presentation of skills at each grade level, reflecting coordination with USA subject specific standards.
NJIS’s school year begins in August and ends in June. Applications may be submitted from February of the year preceding August entry. Once the application and supporting documents have been received, it will be determined whether or not NJIS will be a good match. A student's application will not be processed for admission until all supporting documents have been received.
All admission criteria must be met prior to entrance into the school. Applicants in Kindergarten through Grade 2 (age 5-7) need no knowledge of English to apply for admission. Applicants in Grades 3-12 applying from non-English speaking schools, or who are not fully fluent in English, will take the ESL (English as a Second Language) test which measures his or her knowledge of vocabulary, reading comprehension grammar, and writing ability. Applicants in Grades 9 through 12 are required to have a basic knowledge of English, minimum of one year's previous instruction in English, and a satisfactory score on the ESL test. Students will be scheduled for tests after the application is stated as complete by the Admissions Office.
GRADE LEVELS FOR STUDENT APPLYING FROM SCHOOLS WITH CALENDAR YEAR SCHOOL SCHEDULES
Students applying from schools with calendar year school years from January, February, or March until November, December, or February, as in Australia, Singapore, and Korea, will be considered for admission to the grade that extends their current school year. In other words, students applying for August enrollment should apply to begin the grade they are currently attending, and students applying for January enrollment should apply to join the grade they have just completed.
All applicants must supply the following documentation:
Submission of this application does not guarantee admission into the school. Incomplete information may delay the application process. Once all admission requirements are met, parents will be informed of admission and placement, at which time the following procedures are necessary:
