Welcome to SMP Jubilee. Our long, rich experience as educators has shown us the uniqueness of students in junior high school level. During their junior high school years (grade 7 – 9), students experience transitional phase from young children to adolescence. They will experience plenty of changes physically, emotionally, personally, as well as socially; many of the changes may cause a lot of discomfort and will have an impact on their academic performance. Such changes will be challenging for the students as well as the parents.
At SMP Jubilee, we accompany our students going through the challenges of life development by providing plenty of support in the form of individual guidance as well as counseling. We focus on both the academic performance as well as the character development of each student. We thrive to provide a well-balanced learning experience complemented by concern for the physical and psychological development of the students. We also provide rigorous high school preparation that promotes the student’s confidence, sense of identity, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying academic performance.
Our status as SPK (Satuan Pendidikan Kerjasama) allows us to implement Cambridge curriculum as well as the national curriculum. Our students will be ready to appear in Cambridge Checkpoint Examination at the end of grade 8 and in Ujian Nasional at the end of grade 9.
In our effort to achieve a well-balanced learning environment, we recognize the unique learning styles and intellectual abilities of each student. The teachers at SMP Jubilee are trained to understand the learning style of each student and to employ different teaching methodologies accordingly. Our teachers administer periodic assessment to keep track of the students’ progress and to make modification to their teaching methods whenever necessary.
Our curriculum is designed to:
- Promote group discussions that encourage students to communicate their ideas confidently
- Develop in students an appreciation for each subject through exposure to real-life examples
- Stimulate and challenge the intellectual curiosity of our students
- Familiarize our students with new technology
- Teach students independent learning techniques
Students will be assessed periodically and continuously to monitor their progress. Common forms of assessment in SMP Jubilee are a combination of:
- Actual attendance
- Tests taken during mid-semester and end of semester
- Projects / research work
- Oral / written examination
Aside from academic assessment, we also value excellence of character shown by the students. Good and discipline behavior, integrity, honesty and respect will be recorded and awarded accordingly to encourage the students to always be at their best.

EDUCATION TRIANGLE: STUDENT-TEACHER-PARENT RELATIONSHIP
In our effort to achieve a well-balanced learning environment for the students, we implement Education Triangle in SMP Jubilee. Education Triangle is the relationship that exists between parents, teachers, and students. We deeply believe that this partnership must be strong, focused and positive to support student learning, growth, and development. We understand that the key to successful Education Triangle is communication. We keep the parents involved in the students’ education.
We also expect the parents to be willingly active and supportive in making the Education Triangle a success for the sake of the students. By having more contact with parents, our teachers will learn more about the students’ need and home environment, which is necessary information for the teachers to better meet those needs.
Education Triangle in SMP Jubilee is implemented through programs including:
- Parent-teacher conferences
- Workshop and seminar for parents
- Parent Communication Group with class teacher
- Communication with School Counselor
