Our Governance

SIS is unique in that it is not owned or managed by an individual owner or company. It is truly a non-profit school owned by the parent community. This means that all tuition collected is reinvested into your child’s education. Any profits are used for development and improvements to our facilities and programs. The Foundation Yayasan Surabaya International School is registered with the Indonesian government and follows the Indonesian three-tiered system of governance.

The school has three tiers of management:

  • Board of Patrons (BOP)
  • Board of Supervisors (BOS)
  • Board of Management (BOM)
