The Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) is a private, fee-paying day school, licensed by the Jordanian Ministry of Education. It is coeducational and prepares its students for the International Baccalaureate Diploma and Career-related Programme and courses as school leaving qualifications. In addition to providing an academic education of high quality, the school attaches considerable importance to creative, physical and community service activities, and offers a wide and developing range of facilities and opportunities in these areas.

ABS was founded in 1981 with the aim of providing a bilingual education that would meet, in quality and breadth, the highest international standards, whilst remaining firmly rooted in the Arab heritage. At the same time, the school has increasingly attracted students from the international community who wish to take advantage of the opportunity offered in the Middle Years School (MYP) and the IB College (Diploma Programme/Career-related Programme) to pursue an education in English that, nonetheless, sustains close contact with the culture of the host country.

The Amman Baccalaureate School is a school where modern educational theory and practice are implemented and enthusiastically embraced. In its officially recognised role as a 'pioneer school', ABS pilots new material, methods and approaches, and so paves the way for other schools to follow. Emphasis on bilingualism at every stage promotes knowledge of different cultures, traditions and values, and this fosters openness, understanding and tolerance.

The ABS has a unique curriculum model for a bilingual (Arabic/English) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is amongst a select few schools worldwide to offer all four IB Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, CP).

Involvement with each and every student as an individual is a guiding principle at ABS. The high proportion of teachers to students (1:6) allows this principle to be a reality. This compares very favourably with institutions of similar academic standing, nationally and internationally. ABS teachers are qualified and trained educators, coming from open-minded and global backgrounds.

From its modest beginnings in rented premises with 100 pupils, ABS now has approximately 1180 students and its own purpose-built campus, with a strong staff, a wide and varied curriculum and impressive educational, technical, sporting and arts resources and facilities.

Amman Baccalaureate School also offers an international section for Grades 6-12. This section is for those students that do not have the level of Arabic to cope with an ABS bilingual education, but wish to benefit from our outstanding holistic educational experience.

International section students benefit from:

  • Prestigious and internationally recognised International Baccalaureate Programmes (MYP, DP, CP)
  • 36 years of experience providing quality education
  • First school in the region to offer the IB Programme
  • ABS graduates gain acceptance to the best universities around the world
  • Quality international education in both English and Arabic languages
  • First class facilities
