JUBILEE SCHOOL MODEL FOR POTENTIALLY GIFTED & MERITORIOUS STUDENTS
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
IGCSE is an international curriculum that develops students’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem
solving, and gives them excellent preparation for the next stage in their education. It is taken in over 100 countries worldwide and is internationally recognized as being equivalent to the GCSE in the United Kingdom.
The IGCSE subjects are taken over the duration of two scholastic years after which the student sits for the external examinations.
In Jordan IGCSE qualifications are used as a preparation for AS, and A levels. Cambridge International A- Levels typically take two years to complete and offer a flexible course of study that gives students the freedom to select subjects that are right for them. Universities worldwide recognize Cambridge International A/AS Level as an excellent preparation for a university education. Some universities give up to a year’s credit as a result.
In addition to the IGCSE offered at the school, JS provides additional opportunities for its students to enroll in international programs such as:
The Youth Exchange & Study (YES) Program
The Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) Program was established by the U.S. Department of State in October 2002 to provide scholarships for high school students (15-18.5 years) to spend up to one academic year (10th grade) in the U.S.
Students live with host families, attend high school, engage in activities to learn about American society and values, acquire leadership skills, and help educate Americans about their country and culture.
The YES program is a merit-based competition open to students who would not traditionally have access to American Secondary education and who exhibit academic excellence, leadership potential, and a desire to enhance relations between the United States and their home countries.
The United World Colleges Program (UWC)
UWC was founded in 1962, offering an educational experience based on shared learning, collaboration and understanding so that the students would act as champions of peace.
