At the median price of US$14,173, families can expect to find schools that offer a standard level of education with reasonable facilities and teaching quality. This median value also reflects the central tendency of international school fees in Jakarta, providing a benchmark for what most expatriates might expect to pay.

The third quartile (Q3) price is US$20,654, indicating that 75% of schools charge below this amount. Schools in this range are likely to offer more comprehensive programmes and better facilities, catering to families who prioritise a higher level of educational and extracurricular opportunities.
