Jakarta Montessori School is recognised as the centre of excellence for Montessori schools and follows the best practices of an authentic and pure Montessori school. JMS is the only fully accredited Montessori school in Jakarta with the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board London and affiliated to the International Montessori Council, USA. All of the lead teachers are experienced Montessori educators and have International Montessori Diplomas.

The Montessori Programme is centred on the child and encourages building a foundation of interest in learning. By giving the opportunities in the school’s prepared environment and with guidance from the well-qualified teachers, your children will develop a love for learning and achieve independence, self-confidence and high self-esteem. They will be in a unique environment where children from all parts of the world come together and learn from each other through their daily interaction and appreciation of the different cultures. They will be encouraged to learn to work to the best of their ability, care for and respect others through a deeper understanding of the meaning of sharing and expand a natural curiosity for the world around him/her. JMS students develop their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, fostering a lifelong love of learning.
