We are a diverse and inclusive environment of globally minded leaders and learners committed to shaping a better world.

Founded in 1987, ABA educates the next generation of leaders and innovators, inspiring them to make a positive impact on their world. The only International Baccalaureate World Continuum School in Oman, and a non-profit, ABA enrols over 920 students from Kindergarten through Grade 12, representing over 75 countries. Located in central Muscat, ABA is grounded in its mission to deliver an international education of the highest quality to enable students to be confident, responsible, caring, life-long learners. 

ABA students will discover amazing learning experiences, inspirational faculty members, countless sports and clubs, and a wide range of supports that care for their academic, social and emotional needs — not to mention a lifelong network of friends.  ABA offers modern learning spaces and use of technology, expert faculty and countless athletic and co-curricular activities. 

At ABA, we meet students where they are and provide them with the tools they need for success. We focus on the whole child to ensure balance, support, and success. Our small class sizes allow faculty to get to know students on a personal level and understand how to help them best.   ABA promotes academic excellence within a context of intercultural understanding and respect.

For over 30 years, we've been providing students with the skills for an ever-changing future. Today, we must plan for technologies and professions not yet invented that will likely be key to defining global interaction in the future. We need to help our students find comfort with change and develop a genuine sense of flexibility and adaptability. Experiences as members of problem-solving teams and meaningful opportunities to travel and to see and experience the rich diversity of our world build this foundation.

Our future graduates have their sights set on a wide range of different university and college options, including some of the world's most prestigious learning institutions. The Class of 2020! averaged a score of 35 points which is the equivalent at A-Level of A*A*A, and the ABA average far exceeds the world average of 29.7 points.  23% of our cohort placed in the top 8% of IB DP graduates globally - did we mention that one student also got a perfect score?  Our students are enabled to choose the universities and colleges that will open up a world of opportunity.

ABA draws experienced teachers to teach challenging courses and provide a supportive international learning environment for students.  The 151 academic and specialist staff members at ABA represent 21 nations. All teachers at ABA hold at least a Bachelor’s degree; 51% have Masters degrees, and 5% hold Doctoral degrees. In addition to the academics, we offer a varied co-curricular programme which includes sports, visual and performing arts as well as service opportunities.
