Our History
Batam, with its proximity to Singapore, has an increasing challenge and demand in all sectors such as in business economy, investments and education. Due to its distance to Singapore, people have been encouraged to stay competitive in terms of its qualifications specifically on its educational attainment.

The survey results of the Department of Education in Batam showed that the increasing number of children entering the school is high. Hence, the department is encouraging Indonesians to expand and open more schools in order to cater to this market. The importance of education in every person has been realized with this modern technology and fast growing world. Knowledge and expertise taught inside in any learning institution is a must in order that a country or place could develop and progress continuously.

It is in this tone that Yayasan Monte Sienna Ryujaya, headed by Prof. Dr. Suhandi Cahaya, SH, MH, MBA, along with three (3) low-profile investors, has taken up the challenge. Their group has decided to establish another National Plus school, headed by Mr. Eddy Soesanto, with the objective that this new school should offer something different from existing schools. They named it Sekolah Monte Sienna with the motto “Creating Learners to Become Leaders.” The registration officially commenced in November 2014 and the school calendar started in July 2015.
It is the first school in Batam to have a national plus program, complete with a fully integrated computerized system. This system covers everything from registration and admission to payment, student attendance, discipline, and even interactive communication between parents and teachers. In addition, the school will be the first in Batam to introduce international subjects like Mathematics, English, Science, and Social Studies. Mandarin is also included in the curriculum.

Under new leadership headed by Ms. Dede Yuliana Tandri, the school has transformed into a forerunner of International Education in Batam. Sekolah Monte Sienna has a new look. It is with glad tidings that the school is now a vibrant IB PYP Authorized school. The early years and the primary years administer the pedagogy and ideals of the International Baccalaureate Organization.

Sekolah Monte Sienna is led by a team of qualified and experienced educators who are dedicated to fulfilling its mission and vision. Our goal is to provide students with an education that empowers them to understand the complexities of the world and prepares them to take responsible action in the future. Our approaches transcend disciplinary, cultural, national, and geographical boundaries while promoting the development of 21st-century skills, encouraging creative ideas, and cultivating meaningful relationships with local and global communities. Our core values emphasize lifelong learners becoming leaders who make a positive impact on our complex and interconnected world.
