We can not supervise children who are dropped off before school start as our teachers are using this time to plan and often have meetings. It is unsafe for the children to be unsupervised. If your children are coming early please be sure you, or a caretaker, stay with them until drop off time.
We can not supervise children who are picked up after the pick up time as our teachers are using this time to plan and often have meetings. It is unsafe for the children to be unsupervised. If your children are leaving late please be sure you, or a caretaker, stay with them.
It is your responsibility. We just need to know in advance who will be responsible for picking them up.For that reason we need an Identification card submitted to us.
We might not see it as we might no longer be at school at this point, so we prefer you call another parent with whom you can make an arrangement for alternate pick up.
No, they are strictly prohibited from being at school during school hours.
We are not able to accept children who have documented behavioral problems.
No. We do not have the staff and resources, as a Non-Profit, to provide any additional educational support outside of our established program.
Our school is based on moral conduct. If the child inflicts harm to others, intentionally in any way be it physically or psychologically, there is no room for continued enrollment. Also, if a child is unable to progress academically within reasonable and standard age appropriate guidelines we will not be able to carry on enrollment as we do not have the resources required to support these children. Lastly, we cannot continue enrollment for students whose parents exhibit behavior which is not in alignment with our philosophy.This is also to protect students from being the victims of any kind of harmful behavior.
Every child, grades 4 and above, needs a minimum of one term for a trial. The early years might need less, to be able to accurately determine where they most appropriately fit in terms of academic and emotional maturity. In many cases we have found that what a parent wants in terms of this, is not in alignment with what is truly in the best interest of the child.
Our program is run in English. For children who are not able to speak and understand English, they must enroll in after school tutoring lessons for a minimum of one term.
All students must be prepared for their classes. They need pencils, erasers, pencil sharpener, colored pencils and notebooks. They should pack a water bottle, a set of spare clothes as well as rain gear, during rainy season. Children should also pack any needed medications and have a medical kit, of their parent's choosing available.
It is very common for children to lose their things, not only at school but at home as well. We usually try to help a child locate their lost item to the extent that time allows. We are not responsible for lost or misplaced personal items. Please talk to your children about the importance of responsibility.
Our school is active, so children should wear clothes that are allowed to get dirty. Girls should wear shorts or leggings under dresses and skirts. Families are responsible for providing clothing for all extracurricular needs.
We have a vegetarian snack and lunch program, 90% organically grown. It is optional.
Yes. We have a very strict food policy. You can only bring vegan/vegetarian, healthy foods to the school. Please request our food philosophy and guidelines if needed.
Our kitchen staff is extremely busy already, and we do not have extra staff to help with this. It is best if you prepare and send any special foods yourself.
We don't prepare extra food for parents and visitors. But, if we have extra we will be happy to share.
No, this is part of the food program that must be paid for.
Children may bring homemade, healthy snacks and fruits, any thing other than this is prohibited. Sugar based snacks and chewing gum and candies are especially forbidden.
We treat children with homeopathics. If you would like to use something else for your children please send it, along with instructions. In the case of accidents we encourage you to have health insurance in place for your child.
Usually we personally inform parents if we discover a case. We request the child be kept home until it's treated completely and we request that parents take seriously into consideration the importance of not bringing them back until it is, for the sake of our small communnity.
No, all of our teachers are able to deliver and facilitate the curriculum however with ease. This is a racist mentality. To find a school in a non-English speaking country and to demand native English speaking teachers is imperialistic.
We group together children who are working academically and socially at the same level. We adjust these groups from time to time as needed due to the variation of development amongst children. We cannot hold back a child who has outgrown their group, in short we are against the dullness of staticity.
All of our teachers have graduated from different fields of study, the children should experience and learn from these varied strengths and areas of expertise. You will find that the size of our student body is what normally makes a class in other schools. We divide this into small learning groups.
No. This is Neo Humanist School. Based on our moral and spiritual teachings you may find we are somewhere in between the two in our presentation.
We do not follow the national curriculum, but do have Bahasa Indonesia lessons. We have a Singaporean Science and Math curriculum and a sister school with whom we work for our English curriculum.
It is rare that we have found a child has such extreme behavioral problems that we must end enrollment.Our first step is always to meet with parents to try to come up with a plan, a unified front, in dealing with these situations. If this fails to work or if the parents reject working together, we have no choice but to end the child's enrollment.
We expect all enrolled children to participate completely in our program. We do not have the ability to supervise children who do not want to participate.
We provide transcripts for children enrolled for a minimum of a semester. We have accredited international certification under the British National Standards, who require this. Please contact us for more information.
