JAKARTA, Indonesia, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — There is an increasing interest among parents to personalise their child’s education, with a customised learning experience focusing on academic strengths and subject interests, styles of learning, and the pace with which they work.
To highlight this personalised learning approach, ACG School Jakarta will be hosting an Open Day for parents and children who are looking for this tailor-made curriculum. The event will be held in the school’s safe, purpose-built grounds on Saturday, 23 November, from 9am to 12pm.
Parents and families who attend the Open Day will enjoy a tour of the campus led by student ambassadors. They will then meet with the Principal, Shawn Hutchinson, faculty leaders, teachers and current students to learn about day-to-day activities and the opportunities available to enrich school life.
ACG School Jakarta offers an inclusive, friendly and dynamic educational programme for students from preschool to Year 13, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Cambridge curriculum.
"We welcome the chance to showcase our IB learning experience. This curriculum provides a personalised learning experience for each student, to help them become a motivated, curious, entrepreneurial and internationally-minded individual," says ACG School Jakarta Principal, Mr Hutchinson.
ACG offers a mix of local and internationally acclaimed educational programmes
ACG School Jakarta understands that in our increasingly globalised world, students not only need to learn about their own culture but also must develop and expand their knowledge on an international stage. In order to equip their students with a wide range of skills and abilities, the school provides a variety of customised options, including:
- The globally recognised International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) and Diploma Programme (IBDP)
- Cambridge International Lower Secondary and IGCSE courses
- English Language Support programmes
- A Bahasa Indonesia programme for native and non-native learners in all year levels
- A Kindergarten programme for students from 2 to 5 years old
ACG provides an all-round learning experience
During ACG’s Open Day, the school will showcase its state-of-the-art facilities which ensure students have access to equipment that aligns with their aptitudes and interests. Sports, the arts, and community service are all central to a balanced learning syllabus and will be on full display as families visit specialist classrooms, laboratories, the library and gymnasium, and an exploration area.
"Our facilities provide activities to empower students’ creativity, innovative thinking, and problem-solving skills through the process of art and performances, engineering, robotic mechanism, and Internet of Things (IoT)," says Mr Hutchinson. "By combining academic courses with real-life activities, we help students build their confidence to tackle any challenges they face."
ACG encourages parental participation in daily school life
Mr Hutchinson believes that parental participation is a core component of the school’s culture to improve every child’s learning outcomes.
"We encourage parents to continuously work in tandem with teachers and the school community in order to increase connectivity between the school and families. Therefore, we incorporate parental involvement activities into our tailored programme. These include Parent / Teacher conferences and recently launched programmes, ‘Primary – A Day in Life‘ and ‘Secondary Learning Celebration‘, in which parents are invited to become students for a day."
