ACS Jakarta is an International Baccalaureate World School and an authorized Cambridge Centre offering a world standard education to children from 3 - 18. Set in a safe, semi-rural environment located off the Jorr Tol at Kelurahan Setu, approximately 15 kilometers south-east of central Jakarta, it is within easy reach of Jakarta 's main residential areas in South and North Jakarta. We believe in bringing our students to their full potential and by preparing them for their next stage in education by offering a well-rounded and challenging curriculum.
Our children also learn the importance of having good character and values via our devotions and our pupil development and religion lessons. Our Kindergarten students focus on personal, social and emotional development, giving them more self-confidence and independence preparing them for Primary School. They also get the basics of language (English, Indonesian and Mandarin), and mathematics.
I've been a student here for 11 years. i can share my positives and negatives:
-The school has really good and complete facilities. There are art rooms, science labs, tennis courts, swimming pools, football fields, libraries,a special IB library.
- Qualified and experienced teachers
- fun house events and fun special event days
- Graduates consistently get into top universities
- Fees are slightly cheaper than other private schools
- Bullying is nonexistent here
-Its only fun in primary school, secondary school is not fun at all here, literally everyone in my grade hates it here.
-everyone has to bring their own stationery from home, the school doesn't supply it.
-The discipline in secondary school is authoritarian
- Subject and curriculum is very difficult
- So many teachers leave this school each year, including those who have been here for only 1 year.
-If you are a struggling student, do not choose this school.
The education is great for STEM but for any creative activities like Music, Arts or Performing Arts, this school handles awfully. Above that, its rules are very old-fashioned and its price is insane compared to other private, but less well-known, schools. As a student, this school is not easy. Some of my friends left the school (and one student was ever hospitalised) due to how tough it was. Please try your best to find a different school for the well-being of your child. Overall, not recommended
