The JIS Story
The Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS) was established in 1951 to cater to the children of a growing expatriate community in Indonesia’s capital.
Over the decades, our own diverse community of students, staff and faculty members from across the globe – the mighty Komodo Dragons – grew to take up three expansive campuses equipped with innovative learning facilities.
And while JIS is now known across the region for our comprehensive inquiry-based curriculum, we also value our students individual skills, talents and interests, nurturing them to be Best for the World.
The JIS iBook
In 2018, JIS created this interactive glimpse into our culture of learning and leading as part of our application to renew our Apple Distinguished School designation. If you have an Apple device, please download this iBook to engage virtually with our vibrant school and to see why we were awarded this honor in 2015 and again in 2018.
