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.
