An International School

With a Bruneian heart

Founded in 1997, Jerudong International School (JIS) is a large, well-established and well-resourced co-educational school. JIS offers the British and International curriculum to over 1600 students, from 55 countries, aged 2-18 years, of whom approximately 200 are boarders. As the premier independent school in Brunei, JIS serves both Bruneian and expatriate families.

We pride ourselves on providing an education that is not only academically challenging but also seeks to develop the whole student. We are broadly selective but look at each individual child to see what they can bring to our community.

The spacious campus is surrounded by rainforest and is within a stone's throw of a beach that borders the South China Sea. Brunei is a green, clean, safe haven in which children and wildlife flourish. The peaceful and respectful culture has gone a long way in shaping the school and its values.
