IBDP at MMS

The Modern Montessori School has been certified as an IB school offering the DP since 1998, making it one of the first schools in Jordan to do so.

What is the IB Diploma Programme?

“The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. It has been designed to address the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students.

The programme has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities. The Diploma Programme prepares students for effective participation in a rapidly evolving and increasingly global society. 1

The Modern Montessori School is committed to offering a wide variety of subjects so as to enable students to tailor the programme to their needs while benefitting fully from the DP experience.

To that end we offer:

Group 1: English A: Literature (SL/HL), Arabic A: Literature (HL)

Group 2: English B (SL/HL), Arabic B (SL/HL), Arabic ab initio SL (for non-Jordanians only)

Group 3: Business and Management (SL/HL), Economics (SL/HL), History Routes 1&2 (SL/HL), ITGS (SL/HL)

Group 4: Chemistry (SL/HL), Physics (SL/HL), Biology (SL/HL), Design Technology (SL/HL)

Group 5: Mathematics (SL/HL), Mathematical Studies SL

Group 6: Visual Arts (SL/HL), Theatre Arts (SL/HL)

Core subjects: TOK, Extended Essay, CAS Requirement

In addition to the above, all Grade 11 and 12 students take Religion, General Knowledge, and PE lessons.

Students sit for the May exam session and can either opt for the full Diploma or be a DP Courses candidate.

Tawjihi Equivalence:


Students who complete the DP programme can obtain Tawjihi equivalence by meeting the requirements of the Ministry of Education which are outlined in the school’s DP Handbook.

The DP Office works in tandem with the University Advising Office to ensure students are guided through the programme and led to make choices that will benefit them in the future.

All forms, guides, and PPP on DP at MMS are available for students and parents on the e-school system.
