Welcome to the Junior High School Department of Saint John’s Catholic School. Considering the importance of the quality of relationships between students and teachers, the maximum number of students in every class is only 26. Now we are having around 400 students in the Junior High School Unit with 40 teachers and 2 counselors. So the ratio is 1:10, which enable students to get more attention from each teacher.
The teaching and learning process starts from 07:30 – 14:45 from Monday to Friday.
Our syllabus is covered by a values framework that we called as R3IGHT. The values namely Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Integrity, Generosity, Harmony, and Truth. We focus on developing the moral, social and emotional well-being of our students and nurturing them into good citizens. It aims to help them acquire and live by the values that guide them to make good choices and to develop positive behavior and attitudes towards themselves, their family, the community, the nation and the world.
We realized that in providing a good cooperation we need to build a synergy, not only with parents and students but also with the third party. To increase our education quality, we cooperate with Goethe Institut Jakarta through PASCH. The cooperation programs give us many benefits for teachers, students and for the improvement and development of the entire school.
We emphasize on student activities which bring students to the development of their character and knowledge. We have our daily morning reflection (brain gym, meditation, etc.), weekly chapel activities (holy mass, Taize, career orientation, bible study, students seminar & training), the Outreach program – one day of social work in the orphanage/elderly house/special needs schools, recollection, leadership training, and disciplinary training. As a Catholic school, we are basically providing the Catholic atmosphere in our activities, yet encouraging our students to develop the understanding of religious tolerance.
In short, we would like to say that we provide a holistic education. We put our focus not only in academics, but we are facilitating our students to have life skills, critical thinking, independence, self-confidence, and to live in values which are in line with our motto; Scientia (science), Virtus (virtue), and Vita (Life).
Thank you very much and God Bless You.
