Sekolah Ciputra: A Top International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum School in Indonesia

Sekolah Ciputra is the largest single campus International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum School and the only IB school in Surabaya and East Java to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes.

These programmes span the years from Play Group to Grade 12. The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) provides the educational framework for our students in Play Group, Kindergarten and the Elementary School, the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) for Grades 7-10 and the IB Diploma Programme (DP) for Grades 11-12. Currently, students going into Grade 11 are also able to choose a Science or Humanities strand in a two-year School Based Programme which leads to local matriculation.

The IB distinguishes itself as a programme with unique academic rigour and an emphasis on students’ personal development. This challenging educational programme is offered by a worldwide community of schools striving to create a better, more peaceful world. An IB education is recognised and highly regarded by universities around the world. In the High School at Sekolah Ciputra, we offer the MYP and DP. Each of these programmes provides a detailed and developmentally appropriate curriculum framework that is broad, balanced, conceptual and connected. IB programmes offer students access to a broad and balanced range of academic studies and learning experiences. The experience and skills they gain from this exposure distinguishes them as potential leaders and significant contributors in a global context.

Our 2019 cohort of DP students performed incredibly in their IB exams, with seven students scoring 40 points or better. Our top performing student scored 44 points, one less than the maximum score of 45. While we will always celebrate student success, Sekolah Ciputra’s over-arching mission aims to develop students who are proud of their national identity, who embrace the spirit of entrepreneurship, celebrate cultural diversity and possess the skills, integrity and resilience to participate in a changing global society. None of this is tested solely in an examination room.

For us at Sekolah Ciputra it is much more than this. It is the variety of skills developed, whether through music, drama, the arts, sport, Model United Nations (MUN), international travel, leadership and much more, that makes a school a success. Moreover, it is the encouragement of the individual, the support and the engagement of teachers and parents that is most likely to create a culture in which real success can be nurtured.

Contact us or, better still, arrange with us to come and visit. There is nothing better than seeing it all in the flesh!
