Rina was looking for a school for her then 1.5 year old son, when she heard a poem titled “Flowers Are Red” read by an American-based preschool consultant on the radio in Jakarta. That preschool used HighScope approach. It was the same poem that a professor at her postgraduate school read to the mathematics class she attended. The poem tells the story of how schools can kill children’s creativity by applying the wrong learning approach. It was in that class when she realized that Indonesia's educational system needs to change in order to produce high-quality human resources.
Rina decided to enroll her son to a preschool which used the HighScope approach located in Menteng, Jakarta. Years later, a friend told her that the owner of that preschool didn’t continue with HighScope. Thus, Rina and her friends decided to take over and in 1996 they built the HighScope preschool in Pondok Indah. As HighScope’s founder, Rina is at the forefront of the institution’s developments. She is responsible for setting HighScope Indonesia’s vision and mission, while connecting and identifying the essential elements and necessities to be effectively implemented into HighScope’s commitment, i.e. to be the barometer of education. Her philosophy in making decisions is always based on what is best for the children, not for the parents, nor for the school itself. Based on this, she guides her team to think critically and analyze data before coming to a conclusion. She wants everybody on her team to see every problem from multiple perspectives and get the big picture. Rina is an avid reader, in her free time she enjoys reading and learning something new.
