It is a pleasure to introduce our school to you. Much has been achieved since Yayasan Ciputra Pendidikan founded the school in 1996. Today Sekolah Ciputra is an international school and one of the most highly regarded IB World Schools in Indonesia. We believe that our International IB students are truly global citizens. Sekolah Ciputra is going from strength to strength with its highest student roll accompanied by our best ever academic results!
At Sekolah Ciputra our Motto is Non-Scholae Sed Vitae Discimus : We learn not for school but for life. This affirms our commitment to life-long learning in a real life context. We place our emphasis on holistic education. The curriculum is broad and balanced with programmes that support the growth of the developing child, encompassing academic, ethical, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs. Students are guided to become independent learners and well-rounded individuals who have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to prepare them for life in the 21st century. The school’s programmes support students to be compassionate citizens who are respectful and accepting of cultural diversity while retaining and valuing their own culture and language.
We take pride in the many activities and learning opportunities our children are exposed to. Additionally our facilities are internationally first class. Every classroom at Sekolah Ciputra has a Smartboard or large screen TV and every teacher at the school has completed training to ensure effective use of technology. Ciputra Hall, our Performing Arts Centre has a seating capacity of 710 and uses state of the art technology to serve the students of Sekolah Ciputra as well as the wider community. Our new Pre Elementary School will open January 2018 and will accommodate the increasing enrolment of our younger students.
In the last few years, teams of our students have competed in the World Scholar’s Cup (WSC) Regional Rounds in Surabaya, Bangkok, Dubai and Singapore, and then on to Yale in the US for the Tournament of Champions. Sekolah Ciputra hosts a Regional Round of WSC which attracts over 240 students from 13 schools. The school also competes nationally and internationally in the Model United Nations (MUN).
Students have many opportunities to explore the world around them. Some engage in video conferencing for the Model United Nations, some support and attend environmental workshops around the world, whilst some go overseas on cultural exchange programmes. Students can learn a musical instrument from our qualified tutors, enjoy a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and, of course, play many different sports both internally and as representatives of the school. We maintain a very active website which highlights student participation in a wide range of activities. Academically, last year was the best year in the school’s history. In the IB Diploma Programme examinations, 91% of our IB Cohort achieved the full Diploma. We had three students achieve over 40, including a school best score to date of 42. The average grade in the DP has been increasing steadily over the last five years and sits above 5 (from a maximum of 7): a wonderful achievement for students the majority of whom complete the examinations in their second language. This truly fits with our mission. Students of Sekolah Ciputra are proud of their national identity, embrace the spirit of entrepreneurship, celebrate cultural diversity and possess the skills, integrity and resilience to participate in a changing global society.
Please come and see us at the school. You will be assured of a warm welcome and more information on our programmes and activities.
