In Indonesia, where the majority of society is bilingual, the introduction of foreign languages such as English has become an important focus in the education system. Bilingual programs, which integrate Indonesian and English in school curricula, have been the subject of significant attention. This research analyzes the phenomenon of bilingualism in Indonesian education. Through literature study methods, this research explores the benefits, challenges and strategies in implementing bilingual programs in educational environments. By considering the results of ten journals evaluating the quality of bilingual schools in Indonesia, this research found that the majority of bilingual schools show good quality in their systems and implementation. Although the debate about the benefits and challenges of bilingualism continues, many studies show that bilingual children have cognitive and academic advantages. However, challenges such as choosing the right approach, time management, and consistency of second language teaching remain major concerns. To support children in a bilingual educational environment, strategies such as commitment to both languages, use of the mother tongue as a foundation, consistency of teaching, active practice, and community support are essential. This research concludes that a deeper understanding of the benefits, challenges, and strategies in supporting bilingual children can help parents and educators make better decisions in their children’s education.
