About Sekolah Bogor Raya
Sekolah Bogor Raya is Bogor’s leading International standard school. Founded in 1995, we provide both locally and internationally accredited curricula in a green and pleasant environment in the picturesque Bogor Lakeside residential complex, near the main Bogor Toll exit.
Sekolah Bogor Raya is a multi-faith school with students from many different nationalities and backgrounds. Our school runs from Playgroup up to Senior High School and our students come mostly from the Bogor, Sentul, and Cibubur areas. A bus service is available to and from most locations.
SBR’s Philosophy of Education
We strive to provide holistic education that produces compassionate young men and women, free of prejudice, proud of their identities, their cultures and their heritage, and at the same time respectful of all faiths and appreciative of world cultures. We hope by supporting, facilitating and exposing our students to a wide range of experiences that we produce students who are equipped with the skills needed to learn independently and problem solve using both critical thinking and creativity. We believe our graduating students will be capable global citizens who are open minded and able to appreciate the opinions of others no matter what their nationality, ethnicity or religion may be.
At Sekolah Bogor Raya we encourage curiosity above all else. The spark of enthusiasm and joy you see in a student’s eyes from having some control over the direction of their learning is something which we feel is essential for students to learn effectively. We believe technological expertise in terms of I.T skills should be encouraged and supported so that our graduates can utilize both the current and future technology that they will be using to advance their careers. We believe that in a high-tech world overflowing with information, critical thinking is vital to being able to research and differentiate between useful information and data and that which is not valid and in some cases untrue.
We support students through our program to build their confidence one step at a time. These steps sometimes end in a fall but we believe strongly in the safety of our learning environment and encourage risk taking in order to allow our students to aim high and reach their potential. Our students learn from any failure and build resilience and this is a characteristic everyone must gain in order to bounce back when things don’t go our way.
We ensure our students look at issues from multiple perspectives. This allows the students to think about both sides of every given situation. It also allows them to look at issues through both local and international lenses. This helps them understand that everyone brings different opinions, skills, and knowledge to a situation and that those opinions may vary and that is fine. They learn to listen to varying opinions and understand that we can learn something from everyone we meet. This is in line with our firm belief in a constructivist approach to learning. This also enables them to enter the world with both the listening and communication skills necessary to interact with people and gain the most from each and every person they meet.
