Principal’s Welcome Welcome to ACG School Jakarta Welcome to ACG School Jakarta. Our school community is inclusive, warm and friendly and offers the highest of academic standards and pastoral care. We are a dynamic school offering a global education to students from around the world. The International Baccalaureate Programmes and University of Cambridge qualifications we offer provide the basis for smooth progression and easy transition between Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary. Our passionate, experienced teachers are professionals who are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that all students are offered the opportunity to fulfill their potential both in and beyond the classroom. The quality of teaching and learning at ACG School Jakarta and our teachers’ ability to know our students sets us apart from other schools. As Sir John Graham and Dawn Jones, co-founders of ACG, wrote, “Excellent teaching is at the heart of high-quality learning. Students should be motivated by teachers who love their subject, are highly skilled in communicating their knowledge, enjoy what they are doing, and gain immense pleasure from working with young people.” Learning is central to ACG School Jakarta. The result is that, whether our students are local or expatriate, returning to Indonesia from overseas, transitioning from another school in Indonesia or seeking places at top universities around the world, ACG School Jakarta students are invariably well-equipped to take the next step in their education. We are a proud community where our core values of Excellence, Partnerships, Integrity, and Compassion underpin all that we do. Education here means so much more than the pursuit of academic results. Sports, the arts, and community service are all central to the balanced learning programmes we offer. We are acutely aware of our obligation to prepare young people to make their way in the world as confident, caring and responsible citizens. Great schools are built on the efforts of good people, and we believe that our teachers and students are among the very best. – Shawn Hutchinson | Principal

We have a strong reputation for excellence with an emphasis on outstanding teaching, academic achievement, service to others, innovation, and integrity.

Vice-Principal’s Welcome At ACG School Jakarta, we believe in educating the whole child. In addition to the core subject areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies, we provide education in visual arts, music, physical education, and Bahasa Indonesia and Mandarin with a focus on developing communication, social, thinking, self-management, and research skills. This is accomplished through a transdisciplinary approach, whereby concepts are taught together, rather than in isolation. Our Kindergarten programme, for students aged two to five, lays the foundation for our Primary school. Students in Kindergarten are provided with a wide range of experiences to help them learn about the world around them. The experiences students engage in allow them to explore concepts and ideas through play, inquiry, and cooperation with others. Our Kindergarten programme focuses on supporting children to achieve their full potential by developing social skills, self-awareness and respect, emotional skills, independence, and early language, literacy, and numeracy skills. It also focuses on developing self-esteem and confidence that will help your child prepare for Primary school. We believe that children learn English best through immersion, therefore, students are taught in English and encouraged to speak in English with their teachers and peers. Research shows that immersion is the single most effective method for learning a new language, particularly with younger children. The physical environment of our Primary school supports learning in a variety of ways. The size and arrangement of classroom furniture is ageappropriate and designed with safety in mind. We offer specific areas in and outside of the classroom, such as dramatic play and art areas, that are established to guide children in their exploration. We believe that using openended materials supports individual and social play; stimulates imagination and inquiry; and encourages natural exploration of a child’s environment. In order to provide a comfortable environment that promotes responsible use of classroom resources, we introduce learning materials gradually and in a progressive sequence. Students transition into Primary school beginning in Year 1, where they continue to participate in investigative learning, along with an introduction to formal reading, writing, and mathematics instruction. As students progress through the year levels, we maintain our inquiry-based and concept-based philosophy. Learning mostly happens within the context of the Programme of Inquiry, with many subject areas integrated into the Units of Inquiry. Our aim is to create critical thinkers who are open-minded, reflective, and curious about learning. – Jennifer Kesler | Vice Principal – Primary 8

Kindergarten It is during our earliest years that a large part of the pattern for our future adult life is set; therefore, we acknowledge that positive early years experiences give children the best start in life. Our Kindergarten Programme focuses on supporting children to achieve their full potential by developing social skills; selfawareness and respect; emotional skills; language; literacy; numeracy skills; and group work through work and play. It focuses on self-esteem and confidence that will make your child primary-school ready. ACG School Jakarta offers a Kindergarten Programme to students aged 2-5 years old. We believe that laying a solid educational foundation and instilling a love of learning in our students will help them become successful for years to come.

Curriculum Overview The Kindergarten curriculum is concept-based and taught using an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary approach. Students are introduced to units of inquiry that are focused on a particular transdisciplinary theme. Kindergarten students complete four units of inquiry per year, while Primary students complete six units per year. Subjects such as English Language, Bahasa Indonesia, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Music, Visual Arts, Physical Education, and Swimming are integrated as much as possible into the content of the units. The Kindergarten curriculum is play-based and does not rely on worksheets or textbooks. In addition to the content taught, students are taught transdisciplinary skills, such as social skills, self-management skills, communication skills, thinking skills, and research skills. To this end, we aim to foster the students’ independence by encouraging them to communicate, collaborate, and take ownership of their own behaviour.

Years 1–6

Primary School Our curriculum is developed through the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). It nurtures children’s natural curiosity through Units of Inquiry and provides ongoing opportunities to explore, acquire essential knowledge and skills, and develop positive attitudes. Our inquirybased programme develops communication and socialisation skills and prepares students well for future learning opportunities.

Units of Inquiry The transdisciplinary themes of the PYP are: Who we are Where we are in place and time How we express ourselves How the world works How we organise ourselves Sharing the planet

In Primary School, we focus on the building blocks of education – literacy and numeracy – but also offer single-subject classes to give our students every advantage as they progress through their education.

Educate | Create | Innovate

In Years 1–6, our students engage in six Units of Inquiry throughout the year, exploring, researching and investigating the central ideas of each unit. We extend their learning beyond the classroom with regular excursions.


Middle School

The Middle School years are also a time when children are exploring who they are and where they belong. They want to increase the level of independence in their own decision-making. Our task as educators, in partnership with parents, is to guide them along this road with both patience and understanding. The broad-based curriculum we offer in Years 7–9 provides an excellent foundation for study at a Senior Secondary level.

Years 7–9

The Middle School years (Years 7–9) are a time for increased independence in learning. Our challenging and creative programme helps students develop skills and understandings needed to meet the demands of high school while continuing to inspire a thirst for learning. Our middle school programme provides an academic framework that encourages students to embrace and understand the connections between traditional subjects and the real world, and to become critical and reflective thinkers.

Cambridge Lower Secondary is a world-class education programme for learners in Years 7–9.

Years 10–11

Senior School–IGCSE Our academic programmes in high school provide rigor and challenge, as well as depth, breadth and variety across all disciplines. Choices in the arts, sciences and languages are available, and our sports, arts and other co-curricular activities provide students with a variety of enriching experiences and opportunities. In Years 10 and 11, our students study a range of courses that lead to IGCSE (International General Certificate in Secondary Education) examinations at the end of Year 11. Specifically designed to meet the needs of students at international schools, courses lead to globally- respected qualifications equal to the GCSE examinations taken by students in the United Kingdom at the same age. Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14–16 year-olds and is taught in over 10,000 schools in more than 160 countries. Students normally study between seven and nine IGCSE examinations, choosing from a range of subject options:

Compulsory Subjects English – Second Language OR English – Language & English – Literature (two subjects) Mathematics – International Mathematics – Additional (as an extension, if appropriate) Global Perspectives Personal Development and Leadership (Non IGCSE)

Visit our school To get a feel for life at ACG School Jakarta, we encourage families to visit the campus, meet with the Principal and view our facilities.

Guided Tour We run a guided tour of the school every Saturday during term time. Our Principal, Shawn Hutchinson, will join you on the tour and answer any questions. Please allow an hour for a thorough visit. To join our Saturday tour, ring or email our office and reserve a place. If Saturday doesn’t suit you, please contact us and we’ll organise another time that works for you.

Student for a Day Becoming a Student for a Day is the best way to get a feel for life at our school. Your child can experience first-hand our welcoming and supportive environment. Student for a Day runs at any time of the school year – book your child’s place and let us know their details so we can provide them with a memorable experience.
