The Secondary School is from Grade 9 to Grade 12. Starting September 2020, the Secondary School
will start offering the IB MYP as a candidate school for Students in Grades 9 and 10 who already
started the programme while at the Middle School.
Students in Grades 11 and 12 can choose between either the International Baccalaureate
Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the American High School Diploma (AHSD). The IBDP and the AHSD
are, both, tertiary education preparatory programmes, and are considered to be equivalent
to the Bahraini General Certificate of Education. Students in the AHSD can also opt to
study some subjects from the IBDP.
IKNS has been offering the IBDP since 1990. More information about the IBDP the
AHSD at IKNS can be found under the tab ACADEMICS on the main page of the website.
