Students in the Secondary section are being prepared for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. At different points in the upper grades; students will start their journey into the IB with activities in internal assessments, CAS and TOK.
The IB Programme is known and recognized worldwide as the finest pre-university education available. As a result, students who graduate with IB credentials have the choice to enter Jordanian universities or most universities aboard.
Admission into the IBDP starts with an application where subject choices and course of study are selected. All students are encouraged to try the diploma option. Teachers give feedback concerning the ability of students who selected a subject. Each individual student will be interviewed by the IBDP coordinator and/or head of school to check the compatibility of student with chosen programme, MOE requirements and future vocational requirements.
