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.
English Fluency and International Curriculums
Sekolah Bogor Raya makes use of qualified and experienced local and expatriate teachers at every level of the school. Our students are also encouraged to use English outside the classroom so that they develop fluency in both Formal and Informal English. We also implement international curriculums from the International Baccalaureate Organization (Primary Years Programme & Diploma Programme) and Checkpoint & IGCSE from Cambridge.
Inquiry-Based Teaching and Learning
Sekolah Bogor Raya’s programmes are designed to stimulate students to pose their own questions and use real-life resources to investigate their world. The teacher acts as a facilitator, helping the students to develop their skills as they move towards mastery of a subject.
Green & Caring Environment
There are facilities that support students to show that they care about themselves and their surroundings. A hydroponics farm has been established which enables students to learn about taking care of plants and how to grow plants using different media.
Our school is fully Wi-Fi enabled and technology is seen as a tool for learning in every subject. Developing computer and internet skills are a part of our mission as a school, because we believe that to prepare our students for an unpredictable future, we must provide them with the skills of Digital Citizenship, Information Literacy and Technological Expertise.
Safe and Secure School
Sekolah Bogor Raya has a large and professionally managed security team. All classrooms and our corridors are also equipped with CCTV and the building is regularly patrolled to ensure that your child is safe and protected within our school environment.
Sekolah Bogor Raya accepts students with different backgrounds in terms of nationalities, religions and cultures. The teachers, staff and students are exposed to the global issues and recognize values from around the world.
Sekolah Bogor Raya graduates are accepted in reputable universities in Indonesia and around the world. They are equipped with the skills and knowledge that will help them to maximize their potential which in turn will support them to thrive in different places and situations.
