The Amman Baccalaureate School celebrated its 31st Graduation Ceremony on Friday, May 29th 2015 under the Patronage of HRH Princess Sarvath El Hassan.

HRH Princess Sarvath El Hassan, Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees delivered the key note address.

Members of the Royal Family, Trustees of the School, dignitaries and families of the 88 graduates attended the event. As always, many graduates have been accepted to prestigious universities, and many of whom have been awarded scholarships based on academic merit.

The Amman Baccalaureate School was founded in 1981.

The school has been committed from the start to implementing the vision of His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal and Her Royal Highness Princess Sarvath El Hassan, Chairwoman of the Board of Trustees, in providing a challenging bilingual education in Arabic and English, which, whilst meeting the highest international standards, remains firmly rooted in the Arab heritage.

The Amman Baccalaureate School was the first in Jordan to adopt the IB Diploma Programme, and was instrumental in spreading the programme locally and regionally. The ABS is the only school in Jordan and one of only 24 worldwide to offer all four IB programmes (IBPYP, IBMYP, IBDP and IBCP). The School is also a Global Member of the Round Square Organisation and is accredited to the Council of International Schools and New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

The ABS has also pioneered various other initiatives such as the El Hassan Youth Award and the Model United Nations, which are now integral to the Jordanian educational scene. These initiatives play a significant role in developing and preparing young people as responsible and articulate leaders in their community.
