The Amman Baccalaureate School is a bilingual (Arabic/English), coeducational, K – 12, Jordanian day-school located on the outskirts of Amman, the capital of Jordan.
The School is an all through International Baccalaureate (IB) World Continuum School, which offers the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) from KG1 to Grade 5, the IB Middle Years Programme from Grade 6 to Grade 10 and a choice of the IB Diploma Programme (DP) or the IB Career-related Programme (CP) to students in Grades 11 and 12. The School is one of less than 30 schools world–wide to offer all 4 IB Programmes and the first school in Jordan to do so.
Students in Grades 6 – 10 follow the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). In 2002, ABS was the first school in Jordan and the Middle East to be authorised to implement the MYP; a programme that provides an in-depth study of conventional subject areas within a challenging framework that emphasises the teaching of life skills for its students and prepares them for the challenges of the 21st Century.
The Primary school is authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) and its curricular framework. A strong academic foundation is established through an inquiry-based approach to discovery and learning. At the heart of the programme is the IB learner profile, students develop their skills, knowledge and attitudes based around these key attributes.
