    Diploma Program (DP)

    The IB Diploma Programme is recognized and respected by colleges and universities worldwide. It is a natural extension for students that have taken IB coursework in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) or have participated in a GATE program. The Diploma Programme offers university bound students in grades 11 and 12 the opportunity to participate in an internationally recognized honors program. It prepares students for the rigors of university level coursework by challenging students in advanced level University of California A-G approved subjects. IB is a program that incorporates college level Math, Science, History, English, World Language and the Arts with Global Awareness. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit in all subjects by passing IB and AP exams.

    Middle Years Program (MYP)

    The Middle Years Programme is for highly motivated college bound students in grades 9 and 10 . The programme includes accelerated classes and challenges students in eight academic areas. Colleges and Universities throughout the United States recognized IB as one of the premiere college preparatory curricula for gifted students. Upon completion of the Middle Years Programme, students may choose to continue in IB as a Diploma Programme student or transfer to one of Jordan’s Small Learning Communities or Specialized Programs.
