Expat families in Jakarta will have access to some of the best international schools in Indonesia. There are a number of international schools offering highly respected curricula like that of the US (including SATs and AP subjects), the UK (including IGCSEs and A-levels) and the International Baccalaureate. These schools offer an excellent standard of education backed by dedicated teachers, modern facilities and small class sizes.

International schools in Jakarta give expat children the opportunity to continue with a familiar, globally transferable curriculum. Being around other expat children who understand the difficulties of moving abroad also goes a long way to ease the process of settling in. What's more, parents can count on their children being exposed to various cultures, as international schools in Jakarta will often have students of a dozen or more different nationalities.

Below is a list of some of the most reputable international schools in Jakarta.
