Madania is an Indonesian school with an international and inclusive profile accepting all pupils. Students with and students without disabilities learn together in our classes. This works well at our school. We believe that every student is unique and has the right to receive sound and qualified schooling.
These values are the foundation for the individual learning processes of the students we support. We also take the varying intelligence within the class into account. We strive to harmonise the potential of our students with the four pillars of human development; the physical, emotional, social and academic development.
The Madania Foundation was founded in 1995 by the visionary Professor Dr. Nurcholish Madjid. The secondary school Madania – Boarding School was then established by the Foundation in 1996. This school combined Islamic practice with a modern perspective. In 1998, the inclusive primary school was founded. Many beliefs were now accepted and children with disabilities could join. The secondary school Madania - Boarding School also opened its doors in that year. Since then, Madania has developed and now comprises primary, middle and secondary school.
Location of school
Madania is located 45 km from the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta. At our school, you can find calm and green surroundings, as the school is located well away from the main road. Four main buildings define the scene: the primary school, the middle school and the secondary school building as well as our large assembly hall. There is also a swimming pool, a soccer field, a canteen with wi-fi and laboratories at our disposal.
Our curriculum combines theory and practice. It consists of an international syllabus (GAC = Global Assessment Certificate of Australia) and a national syllabus (DIKNAS). With this curriculum, our students are well prepared for tertiary education, and the GAC certificate offers our students entrance to English-language universities without an extra period of language studies beforehand.
Our school offers its students many types of sports (swimming, basketball, soccer, volleyball and badminton), art (music, theatre, painting, crafting and traditional instruments), a second foreign language (Japanese, German, Arabic and Chinese) and other subjects (biology, physics, economics, humanities and art). Students choose from this selection of subjects according to their personal interests and skills. Apart from the A-level exams which students have to pass, they are also required to succeed in the following four subjects: community service, internship, reading log and final paper.
We speak English at school except during religion, sports, art and foreign language classes. From grade 7 on, the students are offered the option to learn a second foreign language. They may choose Japanese, German, Arabic or Chinese. This elective subject is chosen for 6 years (grade 7 to 12). The students may not change the language during this time.
In language classes, our teachers include numerous activities, such as going to music events, films, singing, playing games, visiting native speakers, presentations, discussions and cooking courses, in order to gain a better understanding of the culture behind a language. The students make use of this offer to improve their language skills.
What I like about German
“German plays an important role for my further education. I would like to study in Germany. My German classes here help me to prepare my studies.” (Manyan, 12th grade)
“I think German is interesting and I had fun learning German in class. The class has broadened my horizon by the size of another country (Germany).” (Juda, graduate)
“I have studied German for six years. And I liked it very much. I hope that my German skills will help me receive a good mark in the subject and I can continue my studies in Germany. Currently, I am studying German at a public university in Jakarta.” (Yuyun, graduate student)
