The quality of teaching and learning at ACG School Jakarta and our teachers’ ability to know our students sets us apart from other schools. As Sir John Graham and Dawn Jones, co-founders of ACG, wrote “Excellent teaching is at the heart of high quality learning. Students should be motivated by teachers who love their subject, are highly skilled in communicating their knowledge, enjoy what they are doing, and gain immense pleasure from working with young people.” Learning and a foundation of excellence are central to ACG School Jakarta.

Jakarta is the capital city of the Republic of Indonesia. Jakarta is a huge, sprawling metropolis, home to over 10 million people with diverse ethnic group background from all over Indonesia. During the day, the number increases with commuters making their way to work in the city and flock out again in the evenings. Located on the northwest of Java Island, the province of DKI Jakarta has rapidly expanded through the years, absorbing many villages in the process. In fact, Jakarta is a conglomeration of villages known as kampung, now crossed by main roads and superhighways. It is of the local experience in the city, that you may drive down one wide avenue one minute, then suddenly find yourself squeezed into a small street together with scores of cars and motorbikes. With its many suburbs, Jakarta has become a megapolitan city. Therefore, when you visit Jakarta it is best to invest in a good map or rely on GPS to navigate around.Jakarta is not only the seat of the national government and the provincial government, but it is also Indonesia’s political center. Moreover, Jakarta is the hub of Indonesia’s national finance and trade. It is no wonder, that you will find Jakarta as a dynamic city, with around the clock activities throughout its populated area.This city is divided into 5 districts, namely Jakarta Pusat, Jakarta Utara, Jakarta Barat, Jakarta Timur and Jakarta Selatan. The term Jabodetabek refers to Jakarta-Bogor-Depok-Tangerang-Bekasi, the Greater Jakarta area consist of megacities surrounding the capital. Find our more at
