Surabaya International School



The Surabaya International School is a private, coeducational day school which offers an educational program from preschool (age 3 by first of November) through grade 12. The School, founded in 1971, is established under Indonesian law with the status of a foundation (Yayasan). The school year comprises 4 quarters extending approximately from early August to mid-October, mid-October to mid-December, mid-January to mid-March, and mid-March to early June.

Organization: According to Indonesian law, the governance of the School has recently been revised. The Yayasan operates with a seven-member Board of Patrons, nominated by the parents or guardians of children enrolled in the School, a four-member Board of Managers, and a two-person Board of Supervisors.

Curriculum: The secondary curriculum and materials, including AP courses, are U.S. with modifications so that all students may return to their own countries or join other international schools with a minimum of academic displacement. The elementary program is IBPYP. The School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

Faculty: In the 2011-2012 school year, there are 42 staff members.
