inspiring excellence in your child

Amman Academy is home to the finest teachers in Jordan. Meticulously chosen, they bring a wealth of qualifications and expertise to our classrooms.

All our educators are global citizens with strong Jordanian values. They’re confident bilingual communicators – fluent in both Arabic and English. Our teachers are also keen innovators who are at the cutting-edge of educational best practice. This includes experts who have excelled in the field they teach in, such as physics and design technology.

With one of the lowest teacher-student ratios in the country – just 1 to 8 – our educators get to know each child, identify their strengths, and support them to excel. They’ll do all this in a disciplined yet energetic environment where everyone is motivated to achieve their very best.
