Sekolah Pelita Harapan is a group of 5 schools in Jakarta, Indonesia which offer Indonesian citizens and expatriates a quality, international standard of education in which English is the language of instruction. Our schools are variously accredited with bodies such as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the International Baccalaureate Organisation and some are Cambridge Examination Centres. Most are also members of the Council of International Schools (CIS). Schools use either the IBO or Cambridge curricular which are employ the world’s best practice pedagogy and curriculum design. SPH schools emphasize internationalism, an Indonesian identity through language and cultural studies as a means of preparing Indonesian citizens for their place in Indonesian society and the world.
As a group of Christian schools we base our approach on a Biblical perspective of the world and Biblical Studies is a compulsory subject in the curriculum. Our aim is to equip our students to have a view of the world as created by God and sustained by him. As those made in his image they are taught to develop the gifts and talents they have been born with and to attain high academic, cultural, sporting and social skills so as to become people of influence in the world.
