 Al Bateen Secondary School

Aldar Academies has become the first Abu Dhabi educational group to offer both A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme to its senior years students.   On Wednesday the 20th November at 5:30pm, Al Bateen Secondary School will host an IB Diploma Programme information evening and subjects fair. This event is open to all Abu-Dhabi families of current and perspective Year 11 students, and of course to students themselves. The evening will formally open the IB DP subject choices process for Year 11 students. Subject choices will be finalised between November and January through individual meetings between families, students and the IB DP Coordinator.

The evening will be structured in two parts:
5.30 to 6.00 PM: Plenary session in the Hall. This is meant to remind families and students of the rationale and structure of the IB Diploma Programme, and answer any questions they may have. The Careers Counsellor and representatives of NYU will also discuss University options for IB DP students

6.00 to 7.00 PM: IB DP Subjects fair. Our Heads of department will run subject stands displaying information and material about the IB DP curriculum in their subject. This will also be an opportunity for participating families and students to ask specific questions about each subject's programme of study, academic requirements, assessment, etc. The stands will include a University & Careers stand as well as a general 'IB DP Questions & Answers' stand ran by the IB DP Coordinator.

For more information or any clarification about this event, please contact the school directly or email the IB DP Coordinator, Dr Chiara Tabet at
