FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

  • Where is the school located?
    Our safe and secure campus is situated in Khalda, a prime location in the west of Amman. Our full address is: Amman Academy, Sulayman Abd Al Qadir As Sukkari Street, Amman-Khalda, PO Box 840, Zip Code 11821.
  • What curricula do you teach?

    From kindergarten through to grade 12, every student follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum of programmes: the Primary Years (PYP), Middle Years (MYP), and Diploma (IBDP). 

    The IB continuum is academically rigorous and respected around the world. Each programme is also packed with character-forming learning experiences that nurture critical thinking, spark creativity, and build resilience. This creates well-rounded individuals who not only achieve fantastic Diploma results, but also flourish as people. 

  • What size are your classes?
    Our class sizes vary by age group. Our average teacher to student ratio of just 1 to 8 is one of the lowest in Jordan. This gives our teachers the time and space to get to know your child, identify and nurture their strengths, and provide the right level of support and challenge.
  • What languages do you teach in?
    Amman Academy is a truly bilingual school. We teach in both English and Arabic, ensuring our students become fluent dual-language communicators. Bilingualism also cultivates a deep cultural appreciation, nurturing respectful citizens who are ready for success in our globalised world.
  • Which universities do your graduates go to?
    Our students’ Diploma success takes them to the very best universities in the world. Many secure prestigious scholarships, too, which reflects our reputation for educational excellence in Jordan – and the world. Recent graduates have gone on to study at Harvard, Cambridge, Yale, Stanford, and MIT.
