Amman Baccalaureate School Jordan
The Amman Baccalaureate School (ABS) is situated on the west side of Amman in Jordan; it was established in 1981 by the Hashemite Society for Education, a charitable society registered with the Ministry of Social Development. ABS is a non-profit organisation, whose educational and administrative policies are set by the school's Board of Trustees, chaired by Her Royal Highness Princess Sarvath El Hassan. The school was founded with the aim of providing a bilingual education which would meet, in quality and breadth, the highest international standards, whilst remaining firmly rooted in the Arab heritage and culture. 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 and IB Diploma College to pursue an education in English which, nonetheless, sustains close contact with the culture of the host country. Student enrolment is currently around 1160 students, with over 180 teaching and ancillary staff. 14 nationalities are represented amongst our student population, 10 in our staff.
