Middle School (Grade 6 - 8)

Middle School is about connections. It's a time to build powerful bonds between friends, between learning and real life, between interests and actual experiences. Soon enough hard choices about college and life direction will emerge, but this is a time to explore joyfully and freely -- leaving no possible strength or talent undeveloped. Wondering what Middle School at JIS is like? Here's a peek at the school we love. 

Each co-curricular activity is designed to be inclusive and to help students develop individual interests, confidence, "can-do" attitudes and social skills.

Examples of MS Co-Curricular Activities include:

School Exchanges, Bali Stage Events, Awareness Weeks, Awards Programs, Visiting Author Week, UN Day Festival, Service Learning projects, House Activities, ESP Trips, Guest Speakers, MS Picnic Days, Assemblies, Dances/Parties, MS Madness Days, and Drama Productions.



JIS belongs to the Association of Music in International Schools. Through AMIS, Choir and Strings performers travel to join with students in other international schools under the direction of world class instructors (like our own). 



Sports and competitive athletics are alive and well at the Middle School. You will have options ranging from competitive league play to recreational games. Events like the Weber Classic Track and Field Meet and Jakarta Athletic League tournaments are highlights. Sporting seasons include:

Track & Field, Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Badminton and Touch Rugby


The Clubs Program is a special part of the JIS Middle School Co-Curricular Program that provides opportunities for students to explore interests and service related activities that they may not be able to participate in during the regular school day. The following Clubs have been offered in previous years:

Agri-JIS, Habitat for Humanity, Animal Rights Club, Marine Environment Club, KDM, Green Guardians, Global Issues Network, World Cup Club, Jazz Band, Math Counts, AMIS Strings, Choir and Band, Sign Language, and Model United Nations.

A Clubs Fair is conducted at the beginning of each semester, providing students with the opportunity to find out information about each club, to meet sponsors as well as to sign up for the clubs which may interest them.


The Intramural Program consists of coeducational sport activities that are open to students of all skill levels. Members of the Middle School faculty serve as sponsors (leaders) of each activity. Some examples of Intramurals conducted in previous years include:

Archery, Indoor Soccer, Tennis, Softball, Badminton, Cross Country, Basketball and Rock Climbing
