Admissions

Dear Prospective Parents,

 

We are pleased you are considering The Amman Baccalaureate School for your family.  As you visit our website, we hope you will discover the warmth, friendliness and excitement that is at the heart of our bilingual and international learning community which makes ABS the leading and pioneer International Baccalaureate (IB) School in Jordan and the region.

 

One of the things that makes an ABS education distinctive is the nature of our community.  Although the majority of our families represent the Jordanian nationality, the vast majority of our students are fully bilingual (English / Arabic) who have been exposed to a bilingual education with an international perspective. We welcome applications from non-Arabic speaking students starting Grade 6 where students will have the opportunity to learn the Arabic language at their level.  Our challenging and global curriculum prepares students to graduate with a choice of either the International Baccalaureate Diploma, International Baccalaureate Courses or International Baccalaureate Career-related Certificate at the end of Grade 12.

 

Admission to the school is selective and is based, as appropriate, on previous school records, academic testing, a personal interview with the applicant and his/her family, and availability of places.

 

Admission tests and interviews for all grades are designed to ascertain that the applicant has the skills in Mathematics and in both languages of instruction (except for International Students starting Grade 6) to allow him/her to cope with the demands of following the ABS curriculum and participating fully in the life of the school.

 

The school reserves the right to contact an applicant’s previous school(s) and request confidential references. Assessment and interviews are the governing factors for admission from Grade KG1.

 

In cases where the number of applications exceeds the places available at a given grade level, applicants are placed on a waiting list in order of date of application, with priority set as per the Admissions Department’s policies.

 

The admission team is ready to answer your questions about our school and to help guide you through the application process.  We look forward to meeting you.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Ghada Saifi
