STB – ACS (International) Jakarta (ACS (International) Jakarta) is a Methodist school in Jakarta, Indonesia and is currently[when?] the newest of the Anglo-Chinese Schools (ACS). It was started in 1996 as Sekolah Tiara Bangsa (STB) and entered into a partnership with ACS in 2002 and was formally invited to become an overseas unit of ACS. Like its counterpart, ACS (International) Singapore, ACS (International) Jakarta also offers the International Baccalaureate programme. The decision to unite with ACS coincided with the school's move from its old campus in Cibubur to Cilangkap.

The school is co-educational and currently[when?] has over 800 students in 4 sections:

  • Lower Primary (nursery, kindergarten A and B and grades 1 to 3)
  • Upper Primary (grades 4 - 6)
  • Secondary (grades 7 - 10)
  • High School/Pre-University (grades 11 - 12)

The current executive principal is Mr Ng Eng Chin (from Jan 2008).
