High School transcripts will be kept indefinitely and securely as both digital and hardcopy documents.
Child Wellness Covenant and Child Safeguarding Policy
JIS has an institutional responsibility to protect children. In this role, we need to ensure that all children in our care are afforded a safe and secure environment in which to grow and develop, no matter what cultural background they come from. JIS endorses the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child, of which our host country, Indonesia, is a signatory.
Upon enrolment, parents and students will be provided with the complete Child Safeguarding Policy. Below is the Child Wellness Covenant by which all JIS parents/guardians are expected to abide as members of our community.
JIS Child Wellness Covenant
We acknowledge that by enrolling our children at JIS, we understand the values embedded in the school’s mission and learning dispositions. We also recognize the importance of these values in the education of our children, and agree to reinforce these values at home.
I / We undertake to:
- Support the school’s Child Safeguarding Policy and guidelines on behavior and equal opportunities.
- Be present in Jakarta, and if we must leave, arrange a temporary guardian for our child/children, and inform the school of those arrangements, including emergency contact information, through a signed Parent Absence Notification form.

As part of JIS’ preventative Drug Policy, parents/guardians are required to sign this form at the time of enrollment.

If a student is found positive on a drug test the consequences are as follows:

- Minimum four-day suspension.
- Six sessions of counseling by an approved non-school counselor. Return to school contingent upon receiving documentation of student having attended the first session.

This also applies to JIS students, JIS parents and volunteers, non-JIS students, and non-JIS parents who participate in any JIS event on or off campus.
