IBDP Candidate School

We are proud to be a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) for the academic year 2024-25, subject to authorization by the IBO. This globally recognized program encourages students to develop an international perspective while honing their analytical and research skills. The IBDP is a two-year program (Grades 11-12) that emphasizes holistic education, including subjects from across six subject groups, Language courses, Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course, Extended Essay (EE), Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS), fostering well-rounded individuals ready to contribute to the global community.

GEMS Al Khaleej International School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

More details and information sessions will follow during the year. Please watch this video welcoming our school as a DP candidate school.
