You will find below a list of the most popular international and bilingual schools for expats in Indonesia with fee information.

Some schools may follow the American or British curriculums with English speaking programs while others are regulated under the French or German education system (also Dutch, Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean...).

Education in Indonesia

The Ministry of Education and Culture (Kementerian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan or Kemdikbud) administers the education system in Indonesia, with the Ministry of Religious Affairs (Kementerian Agama or Kemenag) dictating the education system for Islamic schools.

There are nine years of compulsory education which consists of six years at elementary level and three in secondary level. Some parents elect to send their children to pre-school play groups, PAUD (Pendidikan Anak Usia Dini) from the age of 2. From the age of 4, students are eligible for kindergarten (Taman Kanak-Kanak). Children aged 6–11 attend primary school, Sekolah Dasar (SD); followed by three years of middle school, Sekolah Menengah Pertama (SMP); followed by three years of junior secondary school, Sekolah Menengah Pertama (SMP); followed by three years of senior secondary school, Sekolah Menengah Atas (SMA); or students can choose among a variety of vocational and pre-professional junior and senior secondary schools (Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan or SMK) which require three years of study.

International Schools

International schools may be the perfect solution for an expat student (multinational corporation executives, children of diplomats, NGO staff) in Indonesia. Private sector schools are called swasta, with "national plus schools" offering additional services over the minimum government requirements such as English instruction or having an international-based curriculum. There may be some local population, but the schools are usually geared for an international student body. Schools follow a curriculum model from the US, UK, or France. Primary instruction may be any language (and multiple languages are usually taught), but it is usually in English or French. Schools provide similar standards of schooling around the globe, providing for an easy transition between schools whether they are in France or Vietnam. Schools also provide internationally accepted accreditation such as the international baccalaureate.

Admission and enrollment procedures vary from school to school. Space is often limited and preference may be given to students based on nationality. Tuition tends to be expensive based on local standards, but offers high standards of learning, boast smaller class sizes, first-rate facilities, and extracurricular. Boarding facilities are available at some schools, but most only provide day classes.
