About Us

Surabaya European School was founded in 1997 as the first Montessori school in Surabaya. The school grew with the students in its first class into a British International Curriculum with both Primary and Secondary Schools that became fully accredited with Cambridge International Examinations in 2011.  SES is an independent, co-educational, non-profit international school for students aged 3 – 16 with our students’ educational journey concluding with IGCSE examinations in Year 11. Our alumni have successfully transitioned to schools in Europe, USA, Canada, Singapore and Australia.

We pride ourselves on fostering an inclusive international student body with over 15 nationalities represented. Our small size means that all teaching and management staff are familiar with each student’s ability and progress. This allows us to support and encouraged each individual student in a very personalised way. Our teachers are highly qualified, internationally experienced and enjoy open lines of communication with parents.
