ACS Jakarta is a Methodist school in Jakarta, Indonesia. In 2006 it joined the Anglo-Chinese Schools (ACS) family. 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 as Sekolah Tiara Bangsa - ACS (International) Jakarta. The name was changed officially to ACS Jakarta in 2015. Like its counterpart, ACS (International) Singapore, ACS 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 in academic year 2014-2015, has 850 students in four 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 executive principal is Mr Ng Eng Chin (from Jan 2008).

Programmes[edit]

In 2014 the school took in boys and girls from nursery to grade 12 (3 – 18 years old). Students sit for the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Test at the end of Grade 6, the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education at the end of grade 10 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma at the end of grade 12.

In 2014 the school is undergoing expansion on its campus to cater to the growing enrolment. The tennis courts and the full-sized football field are affected temporarily by this and should be ready for use again in 2015. A new classroom block with multi-purpose courts is scheduled for use by 2016.
