Welcome to the Dhahran High School International Baccalaureate Program.

IBDP Overview 2020

IB Diploma Information 2021 

The IB program is under the auspices of American School Dhahran  within International Schools Group in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and offers the IB Diploma Program for students in their last two years of high school (grades 11 and 12 in the American curriculum).

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) is a comprehensive and rigorous two-year curriculum leading to examinations and qualifications for students in their final year of high school. Successful completion of the program will lead to the highly regarded IB Diploma, recognized by universities worldwide, as well as the Dhahran High School Diploma.

Developed in the 1960s, incorporating the best practice of several national curricula, the IB DP is the result of a deliberate compromise between the specialization required by some national systems and the breadth preferred by others.

American School Dhahran began to offer this challenging and comprehensive IB programme on the ISG Dhahran campus in September 2011
