The IPC can be found in over 1,800 schools in over 90 countries around the world. Using the IPC, and IMYC we aim to fulfil our mission of equipping our students with 21st-century skills to prepare them to be creative, critical thinkers, ready for the challenges of the rapidly changing world.

At Regality Academy, as a part of our philosophy of learning, we believe that each learner is unique. We seek to actively engage our learners in rigorous learning experiences that challenge them at their development levels, focusing on fundamental knowledge and skills, as well as pushing our students to adapt, collaborate, and innovate.

We believe in a holistic approach to education, meaning that as a school, we aim to develop the whole child, not simply focusing on core academic subjects. Specialist classes in primary include Music, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Art, Mandarin, and Physical Education and Bahasa Indonesia. Students also attend a variety of Enrichment Activities, after school, to ensure a range of learning opportunities for our students. With a minimum of two homeroom teachers per class, students have access to a lot of adult support.

Located in a beautifully scenic campus outside the hustle and bustle of the city center, MIS was originally founded in 1969 to provide a holistic education to the children of the US and UK Consulates. In a green, peaceful, and stimulating environment, students are challenged through our high academic standards and also learn to build strong character. The MIS student profile is central to all of our teaching and learning and students learn on a daily basis to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective individuals with the constant support and guidance of highly qualified and experienced teachers, all of whom are qualified to teach in their home countries. The majority of our teachers also hold Master’s degrees in their fields and have an average of over ten years’ experience each. Class sizes are kept small to ensure every child gets the focused attention they deserve and the school has less than one hundred students in total from Preschool to Senior High.

With our full-size football field, swimming pool, and gym, our students also have access to the best sporting and health facilities in Medan. These facilities are also freely open to parents, families, and friends on the weekends when MIS becomes a hub for the local and international community. Our library, Medan’s largest collection of English language books, is also second to none and classrooms are fully equipped with the latest resources from overseas. Transportation is available from various locations around Medan. Medan Independent School (formerly Medan International School), is Medan’s only WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited school and offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP), Middle Years Program (MYP), and the Diploma Program (DP). MIS is also the only school in Medan to be a member of the East Asian Regional Council of Overseas Schools (EARCOS).

Our wonderful little school is best experienced in person. We encourage you to contact us on 061 8361816 to schedule a visit and see Medan’s True International School for yourself.

The school caters to the needs of children of the national and international community living in and around Batam, Indonesia. SGIA offers international qualifications from International Baccalaureate (IB) offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and IB Diploma Programme, as well as Cambridge Assessment International Education offering Checkpoint, IGCSE, AS and A levels.

SGIA enroll students from Pre-School to Grade 12 of diverse nationalities (Indonesian, Singaporean, Malaysian, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Chinese, Indian, Tunisian, French, Turkish, Swedish, South African, British, American, Italian, New Zealand).

The school is equipped with up-to-date facilities to foster the love for learning. It is a caring, secure environment in which students develop the relevant skills, confidence, foster positive attitudes and creativity that will help them succeed academically.

The main language of instruction is English but Bahasa Indonesia is used to teach supplementary subjects required by the National Curriculum, specifically for Indonesian students. Mandarin is offered as an additional language for all students. While Indonesian students learn mandated Indonesian subjects, expatriate students will learn basic Bahasa Indonesia, Indonesian studies and character-building.

The school provides all teachers with regular professional development, nationally and internationally, to build capacity and develop skills in implementing modern, research-based teaching methodologies. A university counselor team provides guidance and support on subject/major selection, university procedures, scholarship, applications, interview techniques, to name a few. SGIA graduates are accepted worldwide.

More about the Indonesian Education System

In the mid-1990s, the Indonesian Department of Education and Culture began to open opportunities for the development of what were at that time termed "national plus schools". Categories have now changed and all schools must be one of the following three categories:

  1. National schools - offering the national curriculum only
  2. Embassy schools - offering the curriculum from the home country and accessible only to citizens from that country - what we formerly referred to as "international schools".
  3. SPK schools - offering overseas programmes such as the IB but using elements of the national curriculum. SPK stands for Satuan Pendidikan Kerjasama - Cooperative Education unit. They must have a direct tie with an overseas school or an overseas educational authority. Admission is open to expatriate children and some of these schools offer international curriculum and English as the medium of instruction. They are a great alternative to the more expensive embassy schools for expatriates whose companies will not cover the cost of education, as well as for the children of mixed Indonesian-expat marriages.

Enrollment in most Indonesian schools begins in April of each year for July admission.
