Why would you choose this school for your children? Or for yourself? Our Motto is â€œLearning for Lifeâ€ and in the 21st century when everything is changing at a faster pace than it has ever changed before, it is very important to learn how to LEARN: to learn the skills that will see you through the next few decades.
Good student-teacher ratio. With over 60 teaching staff and around 450 students, our students are engaged, motivated and cared for at all levels.
With a bi-focal curriculum that allows students to study for both international and Indonesian qualifications; the balance shifts as necessary to accommodate each one at different times throughout the 16 years of schooling.
And a tri-lingual approach. Our students learn in English throughout their time at Kingston, but they also learn how to use the English language successfully, and they learn Mandarin from Pre-Nursery, and Bahasa Indonesia from K-1. A child who stays at Kingston throughout his schooling leaves with a thorough grounding in these three important languages.
Inquiry-based learning styles. The International Primary Curriculum and the IGCSE examinations are both founded on a teaching style that requires students to think, to analyse and to ask questions, not solely to memorise.
Safe and secure campus with a beautiful green view over a golf course.
A wide range of After School Activities. After the timetabled day ends, most students stay on at school for another 45 minutes or more to participate in ECA, or Bimbingan to support the national Examinations in Years 6 and 9, or to receive special help in English, Bahasa or Math.
Opportunities to extend and develop skills in a variety of ECAâ€™s (Extra Curricula Activities) such as Traditional or Modern Dance, Art Attack, Choir, Indonesian Culture, Cooking, Chess, Movie Club, Infographics, Muay Thai, Sports, Aerobics.
Opportunities to present to groups, classes, sections and the whole school in a variety of planned events such as role play, assemblies, competitions, performances, celebrations. This builds confidence and the skill of presenting ideas successfully to others.
At an all-age school, students are always in contact with others of different ages and sizes, and develop a sense of care and consideration for others older and younger. We are all Kingstonians, members of the Kingston family.
