Sekolah KHALIFA IMS was established by Yayasan Insan Madani Sejahtera in 2008 to provide alternative education for Muslim Children to develop each child to his/her fullest, give sound academic preparation to be a long life learner with international benchmarks and to be Knowledgeable, interdependent, Muttaqiin and Smart.
On February 28th, 2008, Indonesia Mandiri School (IMS) Kindergarten, located in Ruko Emerald Boulevard AA1 No 18-19 Bintaro Jaya Sektor 9, started to open registration for the 2008 – 2009 academic year.
On July 14th, 2008, Indonesia Mandiri School (IMS) Kindergarten started its first academic year opening two classes with a total of 9 students: Nursery A with 4 students and Nursery B with 5 students. It has grown fast since then.

- Indonesia Mandiri School (IMS) Kindergarten was changed into KHALIFA Indonesia Mandiri School or KHALIFA IMS
- KHALIFA IMS Primary started its first academic year with 13 students.

- The adoption of curricula that feature Islam as the school ideology, Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP), 21st Century Skill Acquisitions, Specialist Subjects to balance the left and right brain, Leadership and Entrepreneurship Trainings and Multiple Intelligence Observation for Primary. We started out with first grade and from then on, a new grade would be added every year.
On November 5th, 2012, KHALIFA IMS Primary Grade 1 and 2 moved in to the new building.
With this prayer in our hearts from The Holy Qur’an Surah Al Furqan (25:74):
And those who say, “Our Lord, grant us from among our wives and offspring
comfort to our eyes and make us an example for the righteous.”
May KHALIFA IMS continue writing golden historical achievements in the future to contribute in Shaping the Future of Indonesia.
