So that, whoever comes will have a transformed life.
We believe that all students grow and develop in their individual ways; that as educators it is our privilege to impart knowledge, BIBLICAL values and an ability to discern right from wrong in leadership, in action and in communication, to prepare students to live a Christian life in a global society.
Our Core Values
- Servant leadership
Ichthus Schools consist of Sekolah Ichthus Jakarta (West) and Ichthus International School (South) are Christian School. Ichthus Schools, under the aegis of PT Bina Putera Raya, opened its branch in West Jakarta in 2001. The second branch in the South opened its doors in 2002. The school caters to children of 6 years and above.
The educators in the school endeavour to educate children who will become adults in the world of tomorrow. It is our belief that a well-educated adult:
- Is Christ centered
- Is academically acute
- Possesses leadership abilities
- Achieve victorious a life
- Thinks analytically and critically
- Shares abilities through mentoring and community building
- Is able to identify, define and solve problems
- Shows the fruits of the spirit in his/her daily life
We believe above all that as facilitators of learning we should be loving, caring supportive, and respecful of the various ways in which children absorb knowledge and develop. To respect the individuality in each child is to encourage their self-confidence and self-esteem.
