In 2001 the Bina Bangsa School (BBS) Foundation had a vision for a school that could meet the aspiration of Indonesians for world-class education not only to prepare students academically but also to produce outstanding citizens imbued with Christian values, equipped with 21st Century skills and effectively bilingual in English and Mandarin.
BBS, serves as International School in Jakarta, thus pioneered a school embedded in an international curriculum based on the rigorous standards of the Singapore education system to prepare students for the University of Cambridge IGCSE and "A" levels examinations. Students were prepared from K to 12 predominantly in English but with a strong emphasis on the teaching of the Chinese language and culture.
In 2016, BBS proudly celebrated its 15th Anniversary with much to boast about. It had flourished from just one campus with about 50 students to six campuses located in several cities in Indonesia with a total enrolment of approximately 4000 students from Pre-nursery to Junior college. Its multinational teaching faculty are recruited from more than ten countries.
Most importantly, BBS had succeeded in its over-riding objective to produce effectively-bilingual students whose academic achievements feature prominently every year in top academic excellence awards including "Best in the World" and "Best in the Country" awards for IGCSE and A-Levels achievements.
The ever-expanding BBS alumni continue to make their alma mater and their country proud as they join the ranks of graduates from top universities in the world and in Indonesia, ready to lead the nation into the 21st century.
