Since Barack Obama first became a US presidential candidate in 2008, this humble elementary school building has become something of a tourist destination. Barack Obama attended SDN Menteng 01 from 1969 until 1971, where he was affectionately known as Barry. Since Mr. Obama ascended to the most powerful office in the world, the U-shaped school has become known as Obama School. Obama studied here under the Indonesian name of Barry Soetoro and if you head down to Menteng, it’s possible to take a sneak peek at the two class rooms in which the current American president once sat and did his sums.
On the school’s gate a plaque has been installed bearing the Inscription “Barack Hussein Obama II, the 44th President of United States of America attended this school from 1976-1971”. At the bottom we learn that, :Plaque donated by friends of Obama, Ron Mullers, Dalton-Tanonaka, January 20th,2009 Jakarta, Indonesia”.
The school was built in 1934 as a CAS (Carpenter Alting Stichting Nassau School). It has subsequently become one of Jakarta elite houses of learning. There is no official Obama tour program, but if you are keen to visit, you will find the school to be accommodating and a look around can easily be arranged. (Jl.
