FIS curriculum & programs provide comprehensive & structured understanding to students. The student’s diverse learning needs & characters are well-accommodated during the learning process. Therefore, every individual can show their best potential in FIS.


The National Curriculum

The national curriculum implementation in FIS is determined in accordance with the national curriculum policy. This academic year, FIS applies both Kurikulum 2013 and Kurikulum Merdeka. Kurikulum Merdeka is applied in some classes such as EY2; Primary-1; Primary-4; and Secondary-1; while other classes are still implementing Kurikulum 2013. The implementation of Kurikulum Merdeka enables FIS teachers with the flexibility “to teach at the right level” following the students’ needs and characteristics. The essence of the national curriculum implementation is not just content-based but what students can achieve through learning. 

The national curriculum also exposes the foundational skills in literacy and numeracy that become the framework of FIS learning. In FIS, the national curriculum subjects are delivered in bahasa. Several subjects that embed the national curricula are Bahasa Indonesia; Civics; Social Studies; Religion; and Physical Education. 


The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC)

FIS Early Year Programs is using International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), which is brain-based research from Fieldwork Education. IEYC believes in the holistic development of each child through enjoyable and playful personal, international and academic learning experiences that prepare the children for the future. 

The learning process in EYP embraces the IEYC unit of learning as the core of the activities. The Explore and Express activities in the IEYC provide opportunities for children to engage and construct their understanding holistically. Fun and meaningful exploration happen not only at school but also at home through learning-link activities. The various expressive performance such as play pretend, singing, dancing, and drawing have been students’ favorite activities.    


The International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is currently used in Primary FIS. The IPC considers the learner (students) as the center of the learning and it facilitates the students to enjoy the learning. The learning process in the IPC—entry point; knowledge harvest; explaining the theme; research, reflect, record ; exit point—provides students with opportunities to see the wider context of their learning and improve their understanding. 

The IPC offers not only the Learning goals, but also Personal goals and International goals. The Learning goals cover the knowledge, skills and understanding that students must learn across different subjects. Personal goals promote individual qualities with good characters and attitudes. International goals help the students to respect their local and national perspectives as well as to move towards global and international perspectives. 

In the IPC, students learn through unit of learning with specific themes. The various activities designed in the IPC unit of learning allow students to be engaged and active during the learning process which eventually improves the learning.     


Cambridge International Curriculum

The Cambridge international curriculum is a prestigious curriculum that provides a global standard for education. FIS Primary and Secondary are affiliated to Cambridge Primary and Cambridge Lower Secondary. The subjects of English, Maths and Science in Primary and Secondary use the Cambridge scheme of work that allow students to acquire the knowledge and skills of worldwide context. 

Implementing the Cambridge International Curriculum promotes students with higher-order thinking skills—problem-solving, critical thinking, independent research, and collaborations. The learning concept in Cambridge allows students to be confident, responsible, reflective, innovative, and powerful in learning. The Cambridge curriculum in FIS is delivered by professional teachers that meet the Cambridge teaching standard.
