I am excited and honoured to welcome each and every one of you at the beginning of the new Academic Year 2018-2019! As your new high school Principal, I look forward to working with you, our parents and members of the community, to provide the high-quality education that you all deserve. This school year will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals as we work harder and smarter. Aside from that, our goal is taking our school and student achievements to the next level of “EXCELLENCE”.
Saint John’s School is a centre for development and formation of the young through quality, human, and Catholic education. We are dedicated to a student-centred program that promotes academic excellence through an enriched, rigorous inter-disciplinary curriculum from a well-rounded Indonesian National Curriculum and Pearson Edexcel that employs a unique combination that emphasises the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities.
Saint John’s School is our second home. We live, breathe and learn inside the hallowed halls of our school, a place to grow and create friendships that will last for years to come. As in any home, we are all family—the Saint John’s Family! We believe that every learner is unique and special and that they all have the ability to learn in their own unique way. We believe it is our responsibility as educators to nurture and develop every learner to prepare them for life. Learners are continually encouraged to appreciate our diverse community and to care for others by becoming global citizens with an Indonesian identity that comes from language and cultural studies; a means of preparing Indonesian citizens for their place in Indonesian society and the world.
Our Junior-Senior High School students are offered many opportunities to explore their interests and investigate new ideas. We offer various extra-curricular activities like Coding Bee, Culinary Arts, Choir, Scouting, Photography, Science Club, English Club, Sports and a large variety of musical ventures that our students can participate in. Many of our students are involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities that allow them the opportunity to grow at their own pace in a safe and nurturing environment.
We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents, and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. Teachers are a mix of expatriates and Indonesians and are recruited locally and internationally. They are well-qualified and willing to engage in on-going professional development. We look forward to serving you and your children over the coming years. Enjoy looking through our website and don’t hesitate to contact us with further inquiries. I look forward to working with all of you and pushing you to all academic heights. On behalf of the staff of Saint John’s Junior-Senior High School, I would like to welcome all of you and thank you for being a part of Saint John’s School community.
