School With IB Accreditation

Since I've been accepted in Tunas Muda International School (TMIS) and my Dad finally payed for it last week, I think I want to discuss about International Baccalaureate (IB) program. It's important for me to find a school with good quality, not just in curriculum but for all aspects. I'll enter senior high school next year, my parents let me choose wherever I want to enroll, I made my last decision that I wanted international school with IB accreditation, there are only 33 schools authorized by IB in Indonesia. Why I chose IB instead other program? Once I thought, I should make a right decision for my life, what and who I want to be. I noticed that schools nowadays only concern with academic intelligent. Even thou I'm dong fine with my academic, I'm not a type of child who want to be sculpting inside the class for 8 hours just to listen the teacher and ordered to do lot of things. IB offers a holistic education with purpose to make a child become true human-being, not just academically but also in heart and characteristic. In IB school, student with good intelligent can't graduate without enough CAS (Creativity, Action, and Service) credits. I often think about my goals for my adult life, I want to be a person who know how to make her intelligent useful for others, so IB program suits me.

IB headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. There are 3,083 IB World Schools in 139 countries

Last October my Ma bought 2 enrollment forms from 2 IB schools in Jakarta. Sekolah Pelita Harapan and Tunas Muda International School.

SPH enrollment form

This one was from TMIS

With all considerations that I thought, I chose TMIS. TMIS is near from my home whereas SPH quite far away. Even both schools are in the same IB oragnization but SPH is lot expensive than TMIS. Annual tuition fee in SPH is 12.200$ while TMIS charges 6.500$ per year. Enrollment fee in SPH is 8.250$ and TMIS is $4.500. IB schools rather expensive than others thou, but my Dad said it's better for me to enter IB school since all of my cousins are IB students so he knew IB program well. 

TMIS article in Indonesian Newspaper (Kompas) that I found today

Another IB schools in Jakarta are Jakarta International School, British International School, Bina Nusantara International School, Sinarmas World Academy, Gandhi Memorial International School, Global Jaya International School, Stella Maris School, etc. They are far away from my home :)

Hi Angie,
I was bumped into your blog accidentally (I was looking for TM tuition fee, ha3x)
Love your writings. Your blog might only about day to day routine but it's really honest.

Btw, could you please tell me where were you going for your pre-school, Kindergarten and Primary School? My house is pretty close to SDH Daan Mogot, so I assumed that you're living nearby.
I'm looking a school for my daughter and I'm humbly accepting all inputs and suggestions. TIA.
