At ACG School Jakarta we teach English, and every child receives English grammar lessons as part of our literacy programme. However, for our non-native English speakers we offer an English Language Support (ELS) programme, designed to aid language acquisition and help students fit in at school socially and academically.
We are one of the few international schools in Jakarta that has expatriate teacher-trained ELS Primary and Secondary teachers. Well qualified to evaluate students’ progress, they work closely with class teachers to boost learning outcomes.
In our ELS programmes we timetable specialised ELS teaching based on the individual needs of each student. This may include out-of-class tuition and/or specialised ELS teacher support within the classroom. Out-of-class lessons focus on technical skills, oral communication, and building effective strategies for reading and comprehension. As students progress, the emphasis shifts towards developing writing skills and operating effectively within the classroom.
Students are assessed regularly on a formal and informal basis and a detailed report is provided to parents at the end of every term.
An ELS fee is charged to participating students to fund the additional staffing and resources needed. Find out more about the fee structure or any other aspects of the programme
ACG School Jakarta has processes in place to support students with learning, behavioural or emotional difficulties, or a disability that hinders learning.
We work closely with parents to ensure special education needs are identified early, and consider best practice and the wishes of the student when developing support programmes. Our graduated response starts with the teacher and gathers further specialist input over time. Interventions are reviewed regularly to assess impact, progress and the views of the student, their parents and teachers.
For students that require the support of a dedicated Support Teaching Assistant (STA) there is an additional cost, which directly funds this provision.
