“Simply The Best”K – 12
21st Century Global Education

Great Location
Permata Bangsa School – Global Education is nestled on the tranquil hillside of Gombel Lama on the Gombel Golf Course Road, Semarang. Our students especially enjoy the Junior Golf programme and school competitions we promote with our local and international golf partners. 
Founded in 2000, PBS has been providing world-class professional learning and development and thoughtful leadership for over twenty years. At PBS we have a strong desire to transform education, and we believe that embracing research, exploring new pedagogies and technologies in our classrooms to engage English second language learners across all grades, is what 21st Century Education is all about.

Building Character
Permata Bangsa School seeks to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through development-appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. 
Each student’s self-esteem is fostered by positive relationships with students and staff. We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved on our students’ learning. 

Setting Standards
The PBS programme meets both the Indonesian National Kurikulum 2013 (K-13) Competencies as well as the Cambridge Curriculum Learning Objectives, using Cambridge Pathway Frameworks through English medium instruction (EMI). This specialised approach emphasizing language development across all content areas of the curriculum which serves to create a bilingual discourse-rich instructional setting aimed at: 
✓ Academic achievement;   ✓ Additive bilingualism and bi-literacy;   ✓ Cultural pluralism;   ✓ Dual Diploma – Indonesian, Indonesian National and Cambridge International Qualifications (CAIE), as well as tertiary education options at either an Indonesian or foreign university.
