CURRICULUM

As an SPK-Accredited School (Satuan Pendidikan Kerjasama) MISB is authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the Cambridge International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) side by side with the Indonesian National Curriculum, providing all our students with a globally-recognised, reassuringly independent, and seamless route to success - both in and out of the classroom, at university and beyond.

PRESCHOOL

We are not rigid about one particular curriculum - we have combined the positive points of different methods & defined it as Developmenta Curriculum. The Curriculum of all aour classes is correlated, that gradually becomes wider & more informatives as children progess from one class to another. Children of one class are of similar age and the work they do is similar too. When they go to Montessori Class, they mingle with the kids of other classes, observe what they are doing and carry out any work that interest them the most, suitable for their age and ability. 

 

Method of teaching - Montessori Method

We use the Motnessori Method of teaching to ensure tha a child's skills are developed in a wide range of area and they are learned and developed at the appropriate time. We have chosen Montessori as a method of teaching because it gives our children ‘freedom to choose‘. The material is displayed in the classroom in an orderly way and children are free to work with any material they like under the guidance of their teachers. It's a great method to establish firm foundation in children. 

 

Assessment Method

We use the Brigance Screen, an American developmental assessment system twice a year - during 2nd (Oct-Dec) and 4th (April-June) term. This helps us in our program planning and in determining appropriate placement for Your child. the Brigance Assessment provides a reliable measure of your child‘s skill level and progress in different areas. Through this method, we are able to test your child‘s emotional, physical, social & mental growth and also the development of his/her fine & gross motor skills.

Primary School (Grade 1-6)

MISB-E offers both the Cambridge International Primary Programme and the Indonesian National Curriculum.

Cambridge Primary, typically for 6-11 year olds, gives the school a curriculum framework to develop English, Mathematics, and Science skills, knowledge, and understanding. The school is adopting the National Indonesian Curriculum which is thematic in nature and integrates the following subjects – Bahasa Indonesia, PKN, IPA, IPS and Matematika.Specialty subjects which are offered on a bi-weekly basis include Art, Music, Computer, and Physical Education; these may be taught both in English and Bahasa Indonesia. Mandarin is taught as a foreign language in all levels.

Classroom learning is enriched by semestral fieldtrips, the Grade 6 students’ annual Community Study Week, curricular and co-curricular activities.

Junior Highschool (GRADE 7-10)

MISB Junior High utilizes the Cambridge Junior Secondary Curriculum enriched with the revised National Curriculum of Indonesia and the best practices from international schools worldwide. It is a competency-based program where learning is focused on developing and providing skills and knowledge that will enable the individual to survive in a changing, challenging, unpredictable, and complicated world.

In Junior High School, English is the mainstream language of instruction and is used for the following subjects: Mathematics, Social Studies, Combined Sciences, Music and Arts and ICT. The subjects Civics (PKn), Bahasa Indonesia, P.E. and Religion are taught in Bahasa Indonesia.

As the students reach Grade 9, the Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum is introduced. It is a two-year program in preparation for the international curriculum of the Senior High School. Students choose their subjects with reference to their career options, the results of Career Assessment Tests and recommendations from subject teachers.
