2023 Graduation

At American School Dhahran, we are very excited to share the wonderful results our graduates attained in the 2023 exams.

89% of our IB students exceeded the requirements of the IB Diploma and attained an average of 5.51 across all subjects.

Out of 338 students that undertook the Advanced Placement (AP) exams, 90% attained a score of 3 or higher.  Mean scores in all AP Math and Science subjects were over 4. 

“We are very proud of our students.  IB and AP exams are very rigorous, and our students continue to rise to the challenge every year.  ASD's IB and AP results were once again well above the global average,” said Principal Ronnie Caldwell.
