All ACG School Jakarta students have come through a system which uses international curriculums – Cambridge International and International Baccalaureate – as the platform to satisfy the entry criteria for universities worldwide and compete on the world stage.
ACG School Jakarta principal Shawn Hutchinson said the school’s outstanding academic programme and international mindset set students up for success wherever in the world they choose to go.
“Our students are exposed to a global society in their own environment,” he said. “It gives them an appetite for learning more about the world and opens their minds to global opportunities, which we’re delighted to see them embracing wholeheartedly.”
