Parent Volunteer Organizations
When you choose a school for your children, you are really choosing a community. For parents and students alike, JIS is where strong friendships are built and countless memories happen.
Parent engagement takes many forms. You could run a cooking class, read a book at Story Hour, volunteer with JIS Peduli, chaperone a field trip or be a room parent in Elementary. If you’ve got older children, be present at a parent run facility, organize a luncheon, support a home game or enjoy one of our weekly student concerts or performance. You can also get involved in a more structured way through specific parent organizations at the school.
If you like being active, come enjoy sports facilities unparalleled in Indonesia. Participate in community sports for parents and faculty, from baseball to volleyball. All are available at no cost to the JIS community.
You can also just enjoy the green, open spaces of our 36-acre campus, surrounded by century-old tropical trees and blooming flowers.
Your engagement is encouraged, but it is not mandatory. With countless ways to be immersed in the JIS community, we are sure you will find your niche at JIS.
Our doors are open. You are welcome. You are wanted.

Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA is an organization of parents and teachers dedicated to serving students and families in the JIS community. The PTA consists of an umbrella called School-Wide PTA (S-W PTA) and a PTA organization for each campus (Campus PTA) – High School (HS), Middle School (MS), Pattimura Elementary School (PEL) and Pondok Indah Elementary (PIE). S-W PTA is the governing body of the four Campus PTAs.
As the parent or guardian of a JIS student or as a teacher at JIS, you’re automatically a full member of the JIS PTA. You are warmly invited to live this membership by attending any PTA meetings, events, and to participate in all that the PTA has to offer.
All are welcome to volunteer at the PTA; there are many positions that might suit your interests and availability. Contact one of the PTA officers at your Campus PTAs or at the School-Wide PTA – they’ll be happy to speak with you. Parents are suggested to volunteer at the Campus PTAs where their child(ren) attend, while School-Wide PTA welcomes and encourages parent volunteers from all grade-levels.
