AN UNPARALLELED RECORD OF SUCCESS

Amman Academy is a leading IB school in Jordan, with a longstanding reputation for academic excellence, both nationally and across the globe. We set high standards, emphasise hard work, and provide the perfect blend of support and challenge. In 2023, our International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma average score of 38.3 was a remarkable eight points higher than the global average.

 

From 3 to 18 years old, every student’s academic journey to success is underpinned by a continuum of three IB programmes. These expertly nurture intellectual growth, build resilience, and develop a host of lifelong skills. Our fully bilingual curriculum is delivered by world-class teachers, and learning is enriched by our exclusive collaborations with The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and UNICEF.

 

Empowered by world-class wellbeing support and specialised university guidance, our graduates go on to study at top institutions worldwide. To date, we’ve secured more than US$28 million in scholarships from prestigious schools like Cambridge, Yale, Stanford, Princeton and MIT. This paves the way for every student to dream big and fulfil their ambitions.

Academic excellence

Our ambition at Amman Academy is simple: to support, challenge, and inspire every student to excel. How do we do this? By offering a truly innovative education that seamlessly combines 21st century learning with traditional values and the highest possible standards.

Studying here, your child will follow a continuum of world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes, from the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) through to the IB Diploma. As well as being academically rigorous, our IB programs are packed with character-forming learning experiences that nurture critical thinking, spark curiosity and creativity, and build resilience. This creates well-rounded individuals who not only achieve fantastic results, but also flourish as people in the world.

Throughout their education, your child will reap the benefits of learning in a truly bilingual environment. We teach in both English and Arabic, ensuring our students become fluent dual-language communicators. Bilingualism also nurtures a deep cultural appreciation, empowering our students to thrive in our globalised world.

Our commitment to excellence – which includes the very best wellbeing care – gives our learners the confidence to shine academically. For 15 consecutive years, every single one of our students has passed their IB Diploma. Twenty-eight have celebrated a perfect score of 45 points – a remarkable achievement. And in 2023, our IB points score of 38.3 was significantly higher than the global average of 30.2. This puts Amman Academy at the academic forefront in education not only Jordan, but around the world.

With outstanding results, true integrity, and a breadth of future-ready skills, our students are perfectly placed to get into – and excel at – the world’s best universities. Our global reputation and standing – alongside expert guidance from our university counselling department – sees many of our students awarded with prestigious scholarships from elite universities like Cambridge, Yale, Stanford, Princeton and MIT.

The world's best teachers
Our exceptional educators know what it takes to inspire excellence. Global citizens with strong Jordanian values, they’ll use their specialist knowledge and extensive experience to ensure your child realises their greatest potential.

The world's best teachers

Confident, composed, and committed to your child’s unique learning journey, our highly qualified teachers are among the finest in Jordan. They share our passion for excellence, creating a disciplined yet vibrant environment where everyone works hard – and has fun – in pursuit of their academic goals.

All our educators are gifted communicators who are fluent in either Arabic and/or English. We also attract outstanding experts in specialist fields, to build passion and excitement for subjects like chemistry and design technology, and nurture a lifelong love of learning. Their expertise also guarantees our students benefit from cutting-edge teaching techniques that combine theoretical knowledge with real-world experience.

Across the curriculum, your child will learn in small classes. This gives our teachers the time and space to get to know your child, identify and nurture their strengths, and help them overcome any challenges. Our educators’ enthusiasm makes every lesson energising and engaging, too, ensuring your child will always be inspired to be their best.

Our teaching standards are second to none, aligned with the rigorous criteria set by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO). We conduct meticulous classroom observations and encourage our teachers to pursue their professional goals, too. This includes accessing a wealth of learning resources and development opportunities on the award-winning Nord Anglia University training platform. In addition to the weekly personal development session  held weekly at the school.

Exceptional learning experiences
An array of extraordinary learning opportunities enrich our students’ education. From exclusive collaborations with world-leading institutions like The Juilliard School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to sports, arts, and academic activities, each experience is designed to build character, nurture talents, and ignite passions.

Exceptional learning experiences

Developing our students’ character is one of our top priorities at Amman Academy. We know that well-rounded young people, who graduate with future-ready skills, strong values, and a strong sense of self, will flourish.

From an early age, your child will contribute to our community, pursue their creative, sporting, and academic passions, and celebrate their own and others’ successes. This will ensure they stand out from the crowd when it comes to competitive university admissions processes, too.

Both in and beyond the curriculum, exclusive Nord Anglia Education collaborations with world leaders in the performing arts and STEAM transform how and what our students learn. In partnership with The Juilliard School, we offer the highest quality drama, music, and dance education, which prepares our students for the international stage. And our awe-inspiring STEAM programme with MIT will open your child’s eyes to the marvels of science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths, encouraging teamwork, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

Our thriving Student Life Office (SLO) expertly curates an impressive range of extra-curricular activities, events, and field trips. These include after-school clubs – from origami and fashion design, to robotics and engineering – as well as regular cultural celebrations. Your child will be supported to take the initiative and organise their own projects, too. This will develop their leadership skills and encourage collaboration with their classmates.

After-school training courses, team practice sessions, and our competitive league programme nurture sporting talents, while outdoor and adventurous day camps give younger learners the chance to get moving and connect with nature. We also run a Ministry of Education-approved summer camp, which is packed with transformative character-building experiences.

Social purpose
Guided by teachers with strong values and principles, your child will grow into a respectful and caring individual determined to make a difference. We encourage our students to adopt a global mindset, too, offering life-changing experiences – like our collaboration with UNICEF – that open their eyes to the challenges and wonders of our world.

Our social purpose

At Amman Academy, your child will learn with purpose, act with honour, and support their peers and communities with compassion. Through a range of on-campus, local, and global projects, our students demonstrate their strength of character by taking action that has a real impact.

In the classroom, our IB programmes are enriched with opportunities that instil a sense of caring social responsibility. Every subject taught in the Primary Years (PYP) and Middle Years (MYP) features elements that have community-focused experiences. At IB Diploma level, the Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) programme empowers our young people to go above and beyond to support others.

Globally, our students drive change through our exclusive collaboration with UNICEF. Your child will learn about important global issues – like the UN Sustainable Development Goals and Rights of the Child – and work on inspiring solutions through UNICEF’s Global Challenge programme.

At our Model United Nations group, we also welcome colourful debate and discussion on global themes. Our students learn to work together, communicate with confidence, and value different perspectives.

On campus, our Student Council is a vital link between our young people and the school’s leadership team. The Council represents their friends with pride, sharing their views and organising events and activities that reflect our community spirit, cultural traditions, and international outlook.

Being part of the Nord Anglia Education group of global schools unlocks extraordinary experiences and meaningful connections around the world, too.

The Amman Academy family

Amman Academy is a truly special place to learn. Your child will feel at home from the moment they step on to our campus, welcomed into a vibrant environment built on respect, integrity, and a culture of excellence.

As a community, we proudly embrace the Arabic language. Our history, heritage, and culture are immensely important to us, too. They inform our educational philosophy, providing the core values and standards our students live and learn by. Every year, we come together for many cultural celebrations, including Jordan Independence Day and Ramadan.

Our community is also firmly focused on the world beyond our campus. Our students benefit from a truly global 21st century education – delivered in state-of-the-art spaces – that’s enriched by experiences and meaningful connections formed through the Nord Anglia Education family.

On our ground-breaking Global Campus platform, your child will learn alongside their peers in more than 30 countries. They’ll take part in exhilarating projects – from virtually climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to monthly Eco Schools Challenges – that bring bright young minds together and promote digital literacy. Students can also join life-changing Nord Anglia expeditions to Tanzania and Switzerland, where they’ll grow in confidence, learn about themselves and others, and develop a host of future-focused skills.

Wellbeing runs through the heart of everything we do at Amman Academy. We know that happy, healthy students achieve more, which is why our rigorous academic approach is underpinned by an outstanding pastoral support system. And through our positive behaviour policy – which promotes respectful and responsible conduct – we’ve created a harmonious environment where every student feels safe and supported.

Advanced learning environments
There’s always something extraordinary happening on our campus. Every specialist learning space and state-of-the-art facility is designed to inspire excellence, whether your child is starring on stage in our theatre – Amman’s finest – making a splash in the pool, or learning in remarkable ways in our virtual reality (VR) lab.

Advanced learning environments

With its vibrant atmosphere, world-class facilities, and tech-enriched specialist spaces, our campus is the perfect place for your child to learn, grow, and excel.

Creativity flourishes in our award-winning 437-seat theatre, which is also a cultural hub for the city. Recognised for its exceptional design, acoustics, and cutting-edge use of technology, this spectacular space – which includes a professional-standard orchestra pit – is an inspirational stage on which every student can shine.

Top-of-the-range education technology (EdTech) transforms learning in our laboratories, studios, and classrooms, too. Guided by our innovating teachers, your child will learn in ways they’ve never experienced before in our virtual reality lab, as they discover the human respiratory system or explore the different ecosystems. These immersive experiences will deepen their knowledge and understanding, and create truly unforgettable moments. And in our Design and Technology workspace, the latest graphic design tools, coding software, and 3D modeling equipment offer hands-on opportunities to pursue passions and develop career-focused skills.

Our international-standard swimming pool and sports complex – which is home to soccer pitches, a gymnasium, and outdoor courts – is where our ambitious athletes keep fit, boost their wellbeing, and compete. Our younger children explore and develop their physical skills in three colourful playgrounds – including a state-of-the-art electronic play area. And in our three media centres – which are stocked with more than 100,000 books – students immerse themselves in world-class works of fact and fiction, as they indulge their passion for reading and research.
