MIS provides an enriched international curriculum using the International Baccalaureate (IB) as a framework taught in the English language for eligible students of all nationalities, both Indonesian and expatriate students.


The school year begins from August to June annually. Students are welcome to apply anytime of the year depending on available capacity.


All students are encouraged to arrange a FREE trial lesson prior to registration. Students entering the school in Grade 2 or above are required to complete the MAP test in Reading Comprehension, Language & Literature, and Math. Students who are three or more grade levels behind the grade they are applying for may be denied admission.

MIS does not employ a teacher specialized in children with special educational needs (SEN). However, our teachers have broad experience working with children with many different learning needs. We will evaluate each student on a case by case basis. If you have recommendations from a learning specialist, please bring in the paperwork so we can determine how to best work with your child.

Students applying for grades 9-10 should have academic English ability in order to complete more challenging coursework.

MIS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation and national or ethnic origin.

Age Criteria

Students should be at least 3 years old and potty-trained at the time of enrollment. Entrance ages for other grades are based on a student's age as of Oct. 1st as well as academic records.

MIS strongly recommends that students coming from southern hemisphere schools (Jan - Dec Calendars) repeat a semester of their current grade rather than skip a semester of the next grade. Each case will be decided individually.

Starting the 2017-2018 school year, we have changed the preschool level name from Early Childhood to Kindergarten.

Exam Fees

Please note that the examination fees for the Diploma will need to be paid to the IB in full in the August of the DP 2 (Grade 12) year for all students that are planning to take the DP or IB Courses. The costs for the 16-17 school year can be estimated as follows (but are likely to change before August 2018):
DP Candidate Fee IDR 2,244K
DP Subject Fee (total for six subjects) IDR 9,297K
DP Core Fees IDR 1,924K
Total (for a full DP Student) including postage and shipping fees for examinations. IDR 14,133K

*Please note that this is the total for the 2017-2018 school year. You will not need to pay this fee until the 2018-2019 school year. The IB DP fees for that year have not been announced yet, but are predicted to have a slight increase (typically less than 5%). You will only have to pay this fee once for an IB DP student, not yearly.

Pamoja Fees (for a maximum 1 subject)

For students who are taking the Maths HL course using Pamoja (the online DP instruction provider), there is a yearly fee payable to Pamoja, please see the Pamoja website for the latest fees (pamojaeducation.com).

*Please note that MIS is currently an IB DP Candidate school, pending a successful authorization visit from the lB.


While arrangements can be made to submit Tuition Fee Accounts, for one or more children, to sponsoring corporate entities, the ultimate responsibility for payment of Tuition Fees remains that of individual families.

In the event of late, short or non-payment, MIS will ultimately refer any outstanding accounts for the attention of the family of the student concerned.


  • All tuition payments are to be paid in advance or within 15 days of the beginning (from the first student day) of each school term.
  • In the event of non-payment on these terms access will be denied to the students concerned, and academic references and certificates will be withheld until account balances are cleared.
  • Late payments, irrespective of any other remedial action, are subjected to a monthly penalty of 2% (two) percent. In the event that the rupiah tuition fee is revised downwards in July 2017, late payers will be charged at the previous, higher rate. In the event that the rupiah tuition rate is revised upwards in July 2017, late payers will be charged at the new, higher rate.
  • These payment terms are included with every Tuition Fees Account issued.
  • For new enrolments - the registration fee, capital fee and tuition fee for the first term need to be paid in advance before the student enters the class.

All fees are nonrefundable.
