Sekolah Pelita Harapan -Bukit Sentul Campus
Sekolah Pelita Harapan began in 1993 as a national Christian private
school system. The vision was to have an international-style curriculum
that would offer a good education to national students who could
no longer attend local international schools. According to the mission
and vision these students are to be educated as future leaders of
Indonesia. Sentul began in 1994. It is 36 km south of Jakarta in
a mountainous housing area called Bukit Sentul. It is a boarding
facility providing quality education to those outside the city and
from other islands of Indonesia. The current enrollment is 459.
The students Sentul first seeks to serve are local Indonesians.
A second group of students the school has begun to serve are international
students, expatriate students who are children of our teachers or
from the community. They make up approximately 10% of the student
body. The school operates a Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 12
program of study. The IBO curriculum was introduced into the program
in 1999 with the DP being first. Sentul is the first national or
international school in Indonesia to be a fully authorized IBO school.
The PYP curriculum in Kindergarten through Grade 6 is taught in
English except for Bahasa Indonesia language studies. Each elementary
classroom has a national and an expat teacher to share the teaching
and assist students in both languages.
Grades 7-10, MYP, is taught in English with non-Indonesian speakers
having second language instruction as Language B. For Grades 11
& 12 the program splits into IBO/DP and National Studies. English
and Bahasa Indonesian are used in instruction as courses mandate.
Examinations for graduation are IB Diploma and the National examination.
All three divisions of the school are also accredited with the
Indonesian Ministry of Education. This re-accreditation took place
2004 and is good for four years.
At this time, there is no Special Needs Program within the school.
Students are screened at the time of admission.
