Sending the children to study at GMIS Jakarta is a life-shaping decision. At GMIS Jakarta, students have the freedom to discover and advance their intellectual capacity in a nurturing and caring environment. A premier international school of Indonesia, located in the heart of the capital, inspired by the Gandhian philosophy of ‘drawing out of the best in body, mind and character’. GMIS Jakarta is the place where students compete with themselves and develop their individual creativity and uniqueness.

Students (from Preschool to Grade 12) of different nationalities, ethnicities, colour and backgrounds enjoy the global academic IBPYP, MYP, DP, IGCSE and Cambridge Primary and Secondary Checkpoint programmes. Recognising that each pupil has a different capacity and pace of learning, the teaching methodology is designed to suit each potential. As a parent rightly pointed out, “the best thing about GMIS is the blend of traditional moral values-based approach and modern learning methods such as e-Learning”.

Bringing the ‘World-on-Stage’ and the ‘Page-to-Stage’ activities are the fundamental strength of the school. Each child gets fair, equal and multiple opportunities to develop and showcase their talent in art, craft, music, elocution, MUN, sports, dance and drama. Without a special mention of the thirteen plays that are produced each year, the school’s narrative will not be complete. This is an unparalleled inimitable feature of the school, which provides every student an opportunity to discover and nurture his/her talent.

GMIS Jakarta is known for its sports training programs where starting from primary school, each class has its teams competing, overcoming challenges and developing qualities that will serve them life-long. Each year more than 90% of the alumni secure enrolment in universities and courses of their choice in USA, UK, Singapore, Korea, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, go on to create a name in their respective fields.

Perhaps, the best endorsement of the school comes from an alumnus who wrote that she ‘thoroughly enjoyed her fifteen years of schooling as it had shaped her future in a competitive world.’ This statement underlines and defines the school’s philosophy of ‘Joy-in-Effort’ and the motto ‘Virtu-et-Labore.’

Level of Education

  • IB Primary Years Programme

​​​​​The IB PYP is an international framework which is relevant, challenging and engaging for children in the 3-12 age range. The program focuses on the total growth of the developing child, affecting hearts as well as mind and addressing social, physical, emotional and cultural need in addition to academic welfare.

At the heart of the PYP philosophy is a commitment to enquiry as the ideal vehicle for learning. Inquiry engages students actively in their own learning and it is believed that learning takes place best when it is connected to what is genuinely a component of the world around the student. Keeping with this philosophy, children at GMIS are encouraged to explore ways of investigating environment and discovering through material and concepts to find answers to questions generated by them and their teachers. An explicit expectation  of the PYP is that successful inquiry will lead to action, initiated by students as a result of the learning process. Students at GMIS are encouraged to identify appropriate action and reflect upon the action they undertake. This action may extend the students own learning, or it may have a wider social impact and will clearly look different within each range. 

  • IB Middle Years Programme

​​​​​​The MYP principles are deeply rooted in intercultural awareness, holistic education and communication. GMIS believes in the same and hence the students in grade 6-10 are exposed to and immersed into curriculum that ensures that the students do not see knowledge as compartments but view  it as a whole, where each part is significant. Students study eight subject group and there is equal importance given to each subject group as shown in the IB MYP curriculum model. The minds of adolescents is constantly questioning and inquiring, this inherent ability of the students is explored by the areas of Interaction, which are the context through which the students are guided to view the world around theme, and they provide the students with the initiative to inquire and explore, rather than just accept knowledge. The MYP provides a rigorous and challenging course work, where there is constant feedback regarding the progress that the students is making, the ways the student can improve and the areas where they should focus. The feedback given to the students take into account individual learning style and learning rates.
