Sending the children to study at GMIS Jakarta is a life-shaping decision. At GMIS Jakarta, students have the freedom to discover and advance their intellectual capacity in a nurturing and caring environment. A premier international school of Indonesia, located in the heart of the capital, inspired by the Gandhian philosophy of ‘drawing out of the best in body, mind and character’. GMIS Jakarta is the place where students compete with themselves and develop their individual creativity and uniqueness.
Students (from Preschool to Grade 12) of different nationalities, ethnicities, colour and backgrounds enjoy the global academic IBPYP, MYP, DP, IGCSE and Cambridge Primary and Secondary Checkpoint programmes. Recognising that each pupil has a different capacity and pace of learning, the teaching methodology is designed to suit each potential. As a parent rightly pointed out, “the best thing about GMIS is the blend of traditional moral values-based approach and modern learning methods such as e-Learning”.
Bringing the ‘World-on-Stage’ and the ‘Page-to-Stage’ activities are the fundamental strength of the school. Each child gets fair, equal and multiple opportunities to develop and showcase their talent in art, craft, music, elocution, MUN, sports, dance and drama. Without a special mention of the thirteen plays that are produced each year, the school’s narrative will not be complete. This is an unparalleled inimitable feature of the school, which provides every student an opportunity to discover and nurture his/her talent.
GMIS Jakarta is known for its sports training programs where starting from primary school, each class has its teams competing, overcoming challenges and developing qualities that will serve them life-long. Each year more than 90% of the alumni secure enrolment in universities and courses of their choice in USA, UK, Singapore, Korea, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, go on to create a name in their respective fields.
Perhaps, the best endorsement of the school comes from an alumnus who wrote that she ‘thoroughly enjoyed her fifteen years of schooling as it had shaped her future in a competitive world.’ This statement underlines and defines the school’s philosophy of ‘Joy-in-Effort’ and the motto ‘Virtu-et-Labore.’
