State Elementary School Menteng 01 ( ), also known as SDN Besuki or the Besuki school, is an Indonesianmarker public school in Menteng, Jakartamarker.


The school was founded in 1934 as Carpentier Alting Stichting Nassau School (CAS) by the Dutch colonial administrationmarker and was reserved for the children of the Dutch and Indonesian nobility. The Indonesian government took over administration of the school in 1962, and it was then run by the Raden Saleh Foundation.

Among its students have been children of Bambang Trihatmodjo, the son of former president Soeharto, as well as the grandchildren of former vice presidents Hamzah Haz and Try Sutrisno. U.S.marker President Barack Obama spent his fourth year of schooling there.

Obama's announcement of his candidacy for United States president in January, 2007 drew world-wide media attention to the school, with many media outlets sending reporters to the school, including The Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, and the BBC.
