Jakarta Indonesia Korean School (JIKS, Korean: 자카르타한국국제학교), formerly Jakarta International Korean School, is a South Korean international school in East Jakarta, Indonesia.[1] As of 2005 it is the largest overseas South Korean school, with 1,450 students.[2] As of 2009 the school's student body is twice as large as that of the Korean International School, HCMC in Ho Chi Minh City, the next-largest South Korean international school.[3]

History[edit]

It was first established on February 1, 1975.[3] Korean companies in Jakarta established JIKS. It initially had 26 students but the student population grew. In 1990 the Indonesian government gave the school a license to be an international school.[2]
