EMBRACING A BETTER FUTURE
Singapore School Kelapa Gading (SIS-KG), is a private, government-registered school which offers an international style of education for both Indonesian and foreign students. All students engage the international style program, while Indonesian students also sit for Indonesian national examinations.
Inspired by the success of the Singaporean education system, which achieves some of the best results in the world in international tests, Singapore International Schools were pioneered in Indonesia to bring world class education to students who aspired to one day study or work overseas.
In addition to the Indonesian National Curriculum for Indonesian students, as a fully authorised Cambridge International School, we prepare all students for Cambridge Checkpoint and iGCSE exams in Primary 6 (SD6), Secondary 2 (SMP2) and Secondary 4 (SMA1)
We are a fully authorised IB World School and we offer the IB Diploma Program to students in our Junior College (SMA2-3).
Due to this international focus, the language of instruction is English (with the exception of Indonesian national curriculum and language subjects) and many of our teachers are expatriates. There is a strong culture of English immersion all over the school and our students frequently get very high or perfect scores in Cambridge Checkpoints tests of English in Primary 6 and Secondary 2. By Secondary 4, students are ready to take iGCSE English as a First Language exams and in Junior College, IB English Language and Literature.
A major focus and strength of SIS-KG is our solid Mandarin program. Ten expatriate teachers from China teach Mandarin from Preschool all the way to Junior College. It is our goal to maintain the best Mandarin program of any school in Indonesia. This is suitable for students who are brand new learners of Mandarin all the way to native speakers. We also offer Hindi.
Our school is well known for academic excellence, with some students achieving multiple A*s in Cambridge iGCSE exams every year. In 2013, every student who sat for the International Certificate of Education (requiring 7 iGCSE courses) achieved a Credit or Distinction. However we are also a great sporting school, with our school winning the annual SIS Olympics against the other 7 SIS schools in Indonesia for the last 5 years and with our SIS-KG and SIS United Soccer teams doing well in the Greenfields Cup (Coca Cola League). Every student should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential!
Our motto is "Towards Greater Heights" and this does not just apply to academics and sporting achievements. It also applies to the creation of a rich and well-rounded learning environment in which students are inspired to become life-long learners who aspire to make a difference in the world through community service, technology or visual and performing arts.
Our core values are INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, INTEGRITY and PERSEVERANCE. This reflects how we manage the school, how the teacher's teach and how the student's learn.
In a powerful sequence of programs which is founded on Singaporean excellence, the breadth of Cambridge International Examinations and the intellectual challenge of the IB Diploma Program, we help prepare students to meet the real challenges of the 21st Century and have a great time doing it!
