History of the School

Between 1993 and 1994, the school moved to its new purpose-designed campus in Bintaro, West Jakarta.  Being just south-west of the city centre, the British International School campus provides a healthy environment where fresh air and open space abound.   history_retouch

  The new premises and facilities enable the school to excel further in the range of opportunities and experiences that can be offered to its students.  Designed by international consultants, the architecture is outstanding. It is modern with an Indonesian influence: spacious, well-planned and attractive in its country setting.
The inside of the school is as impressive as the architecture outside and provides a bright and airy atmosphere conducive to learning.  Consequently, working and studying at BSJ is a pleasure.

The site comprises three sections: Infant (including Pre-School), for three to seven year olds; Junior, for seven to eleven year olds; and Senior, for eleven to eighteen year olds.

The Primary and Secondary sections each house a sports hall and library.  Other facilities include a well-equipped music department; a state-of-the-art theatre; a new modern foreign languages centre; an Olympic-size swimming pool with touch-pad time recording equipment; ample playing fields and tennis courts.  All classrooms are air-conditioned and equipped with an LCD projector, interactive whiteboard and computers.

All this serves to provide the type of environment which allows the school to deliver its aim, which is the highest possible standard of education to enable each child to realise his or her academic, social and physical potential and to develop aesthetic awareness, both as an individual and as a member of a society.
