Academic Framework

Our Educators

Alongside their qualifications and experiences, Surabaya European School’s teachers have the qualities needed to support and inspire students in a high performing international school. These include enthusiasm, independence, resilience, adaptability and a sense of humour. From Montessori school, Primary School and Secondary school these characteristics all contribute to the caring, supportive environment and community that encourages each students to explore and develop their potential in their own way.

Educating Global Citizens

Our consistent focus for students is on high academic standards, essential life skills and a sense of responsibility to the community all within the framework of a ‘family like’ atmosphere. We also ensure that each student receives the educational support they need while being challenged to extend themselves according to their individual potential.

News and Events

As an international school we pride ourselves on the family atmosphere and culturally diverse community we have created here in Surabaya. We make a conscious effort to hold events that offer our community the opportunity to come together in wide range of sporting, artistic, intellectual and cultural activities. In addition to cultivating a sense of belonging, this allows our students to explore their creativity and imagination and gain confidence in expressing themselves.

Visiting the Al Akbar Mosque, the largest mosque in Surabaya, was truly impressive, especially during the sacred month of Ramadan. 

Immersing ourselves in the teachings of the tausiyah about Ramadan deepened our spiritual connection, complemented by the serene ambiance of the mosque.

Sharing iftar at both the Al Akbar Mosque and Roudlatul Jannah was a meaningful experience as well, allowing us to connect with the community during this holy month.

This year’s International Day was an absolute blast!

Each class chose a country as their theme, and witnessing everyone dressed up and performing in ways that reflected those nations was truly a sight to behold. And of course, we can’t overlook the delicious national foods that were prepared for everyone to enjoy!

We’re thrilled that the students had such a fantastic time while also gaining valuable insights into diversity and nurturing cross-cultural understanding. Our hope is that events like these will equip our students to become outstanding global citizens who embrace differences without prejudice.”

From blindfolded challenges to innovative communication exercises, students explored diverse methods of conveying ideas and collaborating effectively. Through this experiential learning experience, they not only strengthened their bonds but also discovered the power of adaptation and cooperation in overcoming obstacles. A testament to the transformative potential of hands-on learning, these activities empowered students to navigate challenges with confidence and creativity.

Footprints from the past! 

We started our new IPC unit, Footprints From the Past, with a really fun Entry Point. We became palaeontologists and went on a dinosaur dig in our playground. We learned that palaeontologists are scientists that study fossils and past life on Earth. They use fossils to learn about dinosaurs from the past. We’re so excited to learn more about dinosaurs!
