Global Jaya School (GJS) is an IB World School authorized to offer the PYP, MYP and DP. We are fully accredited by WASC and a full member in good standing of EARCOS. GJS is a non-denominational community that encourages and teaches respect for others by valuing Indonesian culture while embracing international cultural awareness.

GJS is an active and engaged school community of outstanding education professionals. Our faculty delivers an excellent IB education with strong ties to our host country. The national motto of the Republic of Indonesia is Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, which translates as "Unity in Diversity". The school’s culture and sense of community show our commitment to this belief. The majority of families who make up our community live in nearby suburbs. Our expatriate teachers bring a wealth of international experience to the school, but so do our parents, many having worked or attended universities overseas.

Our strong sense of family and community provides a solid foundation for a caring, passionate and compassionate culture. Our commitment to students learning in an environment where their health, safety and well-being are assured allows each student to maximize their potential.

We currently employ approximately 142 faculty, support staff, and administrators whose main objective is to achieve excellent learning outcomes for our students. Our professional faculty consists of 107 professional educators from Indonesia and abroad, which helps provide an international perspective and reflects our school's motto: Gateway to the World.

GJS is a forward-focused community where our faculty's ongoing Professional Growth and Development (PGD) is valued, encouraged and celebrated. Our teachers are fully supported in their PGD and encouraged to embrace opportunities to improve their teaching. We recognize that PGD is a shared responsibility and strategically aid all PGD programs and initiatives.

I have been a school-level user of Schrole for recruiting for the last three hiring cycles and have found the platform they provide to be intuitive and comprehensive. The user interface stands out from others in the market as a crisp interface with the right level of features included at the right places. For me, the top two features are the ability to create school-specific application questions for applicants, and the availability of a short and long form applicant documentation PDF. If you’re looking for a recruiting platform, I highly recommend considering Schrole.
