RHHS offers the Lebanese system, both in English and French, the American program, and the IB Diploma program. All tracks follow the IBPYP, Primary Years Programme, from KG1 until Grade 5, then learners choose their program of study. Students following the Lebanese track will sit for the official exams, join universities as Sophomore students; students following the IB Diploma Programme track will sit for IBDP official exams, and join universities as Sophomore students; whereas students following the American Program track will be exempted from the official exams, and will join universities as Freshman students.

The American Program

The American Program provides the students with Arabic, Social Studies classes apart from the Lebanese curriculum. Other subjects will be common with the Lebanese curriculum classes. All American program students sit for an Arabic placement test.

IB Diploma Programme


Since 1968, the IB Diploma Programme is a two-year pre university course, designed highly motivated secondary school students aged 16-19. The program has earned a reputation of rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the world’s leading universities. It is designed to facilitate the educational mobility of students and to promote international understanding.


The goal of IBO (International Baccalaureate Organization) is to provide the students with the values and opportunities that will enable them to develop critical thinking, make wise choices, and respect others in the global community. The Diploma Program equips students with the skills and attitudes essential for success in higher education and employment.

Acceptance to the IB

The IBDP is a two-year (Grades 11-12, or age 16-19) international curriculum that allows students to fulfill the requirements for entrance to university. The IB is a program for students who hold a Lebanese nationality, as well as, for students with a second nationality other than the Lebanese. Students with a Lebanese nationality, need to satisfy certain conditions set by the Ministry of Education in order to secure an equivalency of the IB Diploma with the Lebanese Baccalaureate. 

There are two ways in which students can follow the IBDP curriculum at RHHS. They can become IB Diploma candidates and attempt the full programme or they can earn a certificate on a course-by-course basis.

Students should choose the IB subjects and level based on their academic strengths and interests, and future education plans. A good knowledge of the English Language is also a prerequisite as all teaching, except for languages, is in English.

Learning support

RHHS believes in diversity and our vision entitles us to work on supporting every student to reach his/her utmost potentials. With this in mind, a specialized Educational Support department has been established with the help of professionals in the field to cater for mild to moderate learning, psychological or physical needs. The school is able to accommodate a limited number of students with diverse learning needs during each academic year.
