Far East, Indonesia
Mountainview Christian School
I am the superintendent at Mountainview Christian School in Central Java, Indonesia. Are you interested in serving cross-culturally in Indonesia as a ministry-minded educator? I am accepting applications and resumes for the 2021-22 school year for the Secondary English Teacher position.
At Mountainview, we use an American curriculum taught from a biblical worldview, and all instruction is in English. We are fully accredited with ACSI and WASC. The majority of our students are native or near-native English speaking students, but they come from a wide variety of nations. About 25% are from the United States and 38% are from South Korea and about 26% from Indonesia. The majority of our students are children of Christian Service workers as they are our primary ministry population. Currently, we have 208 students kindergarten to 12 th grade with one class per grade level. Our elementary and secondary buildings are on the same campus along with 2 gymnasiums, fitness room, locker rooms, 8-lane swimming pool, 2 playgrounds, soccer field with sports track and 2 dormitories.
Mountainview is located in a “small town” in Central Java which provides lovely mountain scenery, moderate tropical climate, and amazing local culture. Most of our staff live within a 10-minute walk of campus and enjoy close friendships with colleagues and community members.
As you consider these possibilities, I should explain that the teachers at our school do not receive a full salary package. Because we are a Christian-service oriented school, we strongly recommend that our teachers search for support from a church or agency to supplement or substitute for what the school can provide. Our school does provide some basic benefits, including housing, health insurance, and a stipend, but it is not a typical teacher salary. You should be aware of this need to raise support so you can determine if this kind of setting fits your needs.
We encourage teachers to plan to come for a minimum of two years, but we develop annual agreements with each teacher and are willing to discuss other lengths of service. If you would like more information about our school and the purpose of our work here in Indonesia, I would love to hear from you. I would answer any questions you may have.
