The High School Diploma Programme

Two thirds of IKNS students every year opt for the High School diploma programme.

High school students in grades 11 and 12 study six major subjects each year.
It is a requirement that all students in grades 11 and 12 study Arabic, English, and Mathematics over the two years. As for the rest of the major subjects, students can choose from the list below as long as the choices made by the students meet the school‚s graduation requirements. All the High School courses , except Arabic, English, and Mathematics, are one year courses that could be studied in either grade 11 or grade 12.

In addition to the six major subjects, students study four minor subjects divided over the two years: Physical Education, Critical Thinking, Islamic Philosophy, and Islamic Studies (which is taught for Muslim students over the two years).
