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.

Year 2-4 Production of The Enormous Turnip! 

We are exceptionally proud of our Year 2, 3 and 4 students for performing so well in our production of The Enormous Turnip. They sang beautifully and acted and spoke with loud, clear voices. They have been enthusiastic in the practices and thoroughly enjoyed performing. 

All children in these classes were part of the performance. In their music classes they have been learning the songs and in the after school activity (ASA) the children learnt the acting parts. 

Well done Year 2, 3 and 4!

We're thrilled to report that Surabaya European School is back for another year at the World Scholar’s Cup Championship. This is always an exciting opportunity to connect, learn, and grow with peers from diverse backgrounds and nationalities.

All of our teams qualified with gold or silver to attend the global rounds. Many SES students were ranked in the top 20 writing and debate and one of SES students got the highest combined score of all students attending the event in the 'Scholar's challenge’.

Thank you Mr Micheal, and Mrs Wie En for guiding us and Chanelle and Tharani for being my teammates. 

See you in the next round!

Journey to the past with WSC! 

Our WSC participants visited several archeological sites in the Trowulan, Mojokerto area to gain a real world experience of looking into Indonesian history. The group also visited Majapahit Museum where they can also see several archeological digs in progress. Thank you Mr Micheal who accompanied the students and gave them debate topics to discuss and think about. Overall it was a great experience that made students feeling more connected to the World Scholars Cup curriculum in a way that reading about didn't do.

We celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite book characters! 

Guessing games were so much fun as we tried to figure out who was who. From wizards and detectives to superheroes and heroines, everyone’s creative costumes were awesome!

We hope this day helps everyone love reading even more. It was filled with laughter, imagination, and a shared excitement for books. Let’s keep enjoying reading and bring stories to life every day!

This video was inspired by the famous 11th century Persian mathematician Abu Rayhan al-Biruni. He calculated the radius of the earth using a combination of trigonometry and algebra. He only needed to measure three angles and one distance and then calculated the radius of the earth to within 1% accuracy.

The video shows how a group of Year 10 students constructed a simple clinometer and then used it to estimate the height of objects with some simple trigonometry.
