Q: What is the HighScope Curriculum?

A: HighScope Indonesia is a Sekolah Perjanjian Kerjasama (SPK), because HighScope Indonesia applies the National Curriculum integrated with HighScope Curriculum. HighScope's educational approach emphasizes "active participatory learning." Active learning means students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children's interests and choices are at the heart of HighScope programs.

HighScope Indonesia focuses on the process of learning, not only on output where students follow, memorize, and pass tests and exams. We treat students as human beings who are able to think, comprehend, understand, manage and lead in the challenging times of the 21st century.

To achieve this long-term objective, the students are taught and then practice necessary skills such as:

ES_long-term objective-01

Students apply these skills in the subject taught, as well as in the Plan-Do-Review, during which students undertake projects that are initiated, planned, carried out, presented and reviewed by students.

 

Q: How is learning is conducted in HighScope High School?

A: To get university exposure from the early years, HighScope high school implements the Credit System.  Credits are computed in terms of units. The number of credits taken influences the daily schedule of the student, thus enriching the student through planning, carrying out the planning, and, during the advisory, reviewing and gaining support for a successful continuation of the student’s academic career. We offer this credit system within the curriculum. One unit represents approximately 200 minutes per week for one school year. In other words, when a student takes one course for 200 minutes per week for one academic year, it is equivalent to one credit. Each subject offers credit for the students who take that subject. The three types of credits are:

  • 5 credit for 1 semester

  • 5 credit for 1 academic year

  • 1 credit for 1 academic year

 

Q: What language is used in the HighScope High School program?

A: HighScope Indonesia implements a Dual Language program. This program provides opportunities for students to use both English and Indonesian, in academic and social situations. As we use an “additive bilingual approach”, we respect and continue the development of the first language.  A high level of proficiency in two languages is the goal of dual language education. 

Students are given opportunity to develop Indonesian and English simultaneously. Our students continue to develop their language skills, including social language, in an academic environment.  “Language of the Day” serves this purpose; each language, either Indonesian or English, is used on alternate days, so the students will alternate between using English and Indonesian throughout the week.  All school staffs and other adults (including parents when at school) must follow and use the language schedule on that day.

 

Q: How many majors are offered in HighScope High School?

A: We classify majors into three courses of study:

  • Math and Science

  • Technical and Performing Arts

  • Business and Information Technology

 

Q: Are there any ex-school activities in HighScope High School?

A: A student club is an organization that is formed and managed by students for a common purpose. One of the purposes is to let students further explore and improve their potential talents according to their interests and specialties. It is important that by joining a club the student also has the opportunity to develop his or her leadership and organization skills.

Students organize club activities on Wednesdays or after school hours. At the end of each semester students organize a performance to demonstrate their talents in front of an audience.

Students should participate in a minimum of two kinds of club activities, with a minimum duration of 2 semesters during their time at SHI high school. A formal presentation detailing the projected club activities must be conducted in front of the School Leadership Team at the beginning of the academic year.

 

Q: Are students required to take the National Exam? And, how does HighScope prepare students for the National Exam?

A: Government Regulations state that the UN is Compulsory for Indonesian student Citizens, therefore HighScope Indonesia School provides "Support Guidance" for 6th, 9th & 12th grade students to prepare for the National Exam. This tutoring continues for 9 months twice a week after school hours

 

Q: What school events support students in real life learning?

A: At HighScope we believe students should learn something that is connected to real life experiences. We conduct events & subjects such as: Model United Nations & Virtual Enterprises.

Model United Nations, or MUN is an academic simulation of the United Nations Conferences where participants represent delegates from various countries, in order to tackle current world issues.

HighScope Model United Nations (HSMUN) is an annual high school level Model United Nations conference event held by Sekolah HighScope Indonesia TB Simatupang. First held in 2009, HSMUN is the very first High School level MUN in Indonesia.

The next one, Virtual Enterprises, is a simulated business course where students learn business by running their own business in a virtual network. This subject is a core subject in Business and Information Technology and an elective for Math and Science & Technical and Performing Arts.

From this students learn more deeply about current issues and nurture soft skills, such as collaboration, communication, writing and leadership. They learn to compete with other high school students from national & international schools.
