Schools Fees and Related Expenditures


Expatriates with children tend to incur more costs during their stay in Indonesia on account of school and their related expenditures. The cheapest alternative is always to integrate the child in a public or national "plus" school.

However, expatriates who prefer to have their children in an international school in an effort to maintain their cultural or language ties will need to consider the schools fees and miscellaneous expenses that come with it, all of which depends on the school they ultimately choose.

The average cost of a good International school can range anywhere between US$9,000 to US$20,000 a year, not inclusive of miscellaneous costs like uniforms and tuition fees. For instance, the Jakarta International School costs about US$20,000 annually and the tuition fees range anywhere between US$6,900 to US$20,500 in addition, per year.

The British International School costs anywhere from US$8,000 to US$20,000 a year excluding fee such as administration and transportation.

Cheaper international schools would be schools like Sekolah Pelita Harapan, Global Jaya and ACS-STB whose primary grade of 1 to 5 is about US$9,000 per annum.

Related expenditures come in numerous forms, be they application fees, tuition fees, uniforms, examination fees, transportation and others depending on the school. Most of these additional costs are easily circumvented such as transport and tuition but the others are often times mandatory additional costs such as registration fees.
