Evaluation of International Standard Schools in Indonesia

Publication | October 2013

Overall, schools and communities are very positive about Rintisan Sekolah Bertaraf Internasional (RSBI), and feel that the presence of the school helps the whole community. The RSBI program has produced many schools with an improved environment that will enable them to produce high quality graduates. One key finding demonstrates that students in RSBI-designated schools are not performing better on average than students in similar non-RSBI schools. The program has also shifted focus to staff development coupled with on-going, results-driven monitoring which will likely result in improved skills and competency in graduates as envisioned by the program.
