Boarding high school SMA Presiden in Cikarang, Bekasi, held a commencement ceremony on June 5 for its 59 graduating seniors of the class of 2010.
Most graduates have been accepted at universities at home or overseas, including President University, the University of Indonesia, Bandung Institute of Technology and universities in the Netherlands and Australia.
During the ceremony, some high-performing students were recognized for their achievements. Felix Hartanto excelled academically for three years running, Feri Priatna already shines on the national stage and Marcheilla Gowtawa has inked her name at the provincial level.
“Since it was established seven years ago, SMA Presiden has been able to carve its name in some respected events. For example, one student became a member of the National Flag-raising Team at the State Palace. We never pass up an opportunity to participate in student and cultural exchanges in the United States, Japan and France, and we participate in national and international science olympics,” said Syonanto Wijaya, chair of President University Foundation.
SMA Presiden has been cooperating with SMA Taruna Nusantara Magelang in coordinating curriculum and teaching standards, and in using English as the language of instruction in many classes.
