I am humbled to be given the opportunity to lead NHJS (National High Jakarta School). NHJS’ foundation for academic excellence has been built over the years by numerous passionate school leaders and teachers who had focused on working towards realisation of our vision as an institution that offers an education of distinction.
Since its inception, NHJS has focused on Character Development, Academic Excellence and Life-skills as her three pillars of education. To date, NHJS has excelled in international benchmark examinations such as the iPSLE and CIE examinations as well as competitions such as ICAS. These accolades are testament for our excellent programmes for the academics.
Moving forward, we will be re-balancing our focus to ensure better programmes for Character Development and Life-skills. The holistic development of all our children are our priority. We want to nurture them to be confident Piagetians who can articulate our values and put them into action. We want to equip them to deal with real life situations and open their eyes to diversity of thoughts and realities. We want to enable all our children to be able to feel compassion for others and have a heightened sense of empathy.
We will continue to tap on the strong support of our parents and partners to create more opportunities to expose our students to authentic learning situations. We believe in generative conversations and constructive feedback from partners to improve our school and learning for all our charges.
We welcome you to join the National High Jakarta School family. Together, we will help your children discover themselves and realise their aspirations.
This is an exciting year for parents and students who would start
the process of selecting the subjects that they wish to continue
through to IGCSE or A levels. To help in the process, giving a wellbalanced
and substantial curriculum, NHJS has selected core
subjects such as English as First Language, Chinese, Extended
Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics at
IGCSE and General Paper and Mathematics at A-levels.
“The one Positive Discipline Tool”
I wish I had used more consistently is this: Connection before
Correction. Of course, I didn’t know what this meant as a young
mother, and didn’t create it as a Positive Discipline tool until about
five years ago. Now we know it is just brain science: children learn
(grow, feel safe, thrive) best when they feel connection—or as
Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs taught us, “a sense of belonging
First Message for Academic Year 2017/18 The school extends a warm welcome to all our new students, parents and staff.

As we break for the holidays, we like to take a moment to thank all
parents and guardians for your strong support in growing your
child/ward. Growing each child is like planting a tree, it needs to
be tendered to, nourished and cared for all the time. Their growth
cannot be measured merely in the improvements they make in
school but also their growth as a whole person inside and outside
