Welcome Speech - American Program

Welcome to the new scholastic year 2019/2020

Dear Parents,

We are happy to announce that a new American Program School 1-7 has opened at the Jubeiha Campus and Ms Obaida al Qaisi is the Principal. Ms Hala Abu Ghazaleh is the new Principal Assistant for grades K-3. Ms Laila el Tobgy has joined us as the Academic Supervisor for grades 1-3. In addition, grades 5-8 Boys are in a separate building in Jabal Amman Campus; the Principal Assistant is Mr Mohammad Khattab. Grade 4 now is on the Second Floor with grades 9-12 Boys and Dr Murad Shreim as the Principal Assistant in addition to his position as the SAT and AP Testing Center Coordinator. Ms Hanadi Mismar is the Principal Assistant for the Girls section on the third floor. She is also the Supervisor of Math, Science and Robotics. Mr Mohammad Shatanawi is the College and Career Counselor of our School.

The American Program is proud to be offering 7 AP sudjects that enable students not only to get the Jordanian high school equivelancy but opens the door for wider college applications, as well. We are also preparing to become a Lighthouse School as part of the Leader in Me Program offered to grades 1-9. Our school is the first, and so far only, school in Jordan to adopt Franklin Covey's Leader in Me program based on Stephen Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Moreover, 2019/2019 witnesses a child protection program, ProtecED, being offered for grades 1-10

We continue to use technology in the American Program where tablets for Social Studies, English, Math and Science from grades 2 to grade 12. Wifi and internet connection is provided throughout the school to support the service. Each tablet has the Classroom Management System to implement the use of technology in Team Model Smarter Classrooms which include Touch Screens, Document Cameras, and Clickers for each student. In addition, all homework plans and study sheets are provided to students and parents through the Edulink platform. The MAP Standardized Test is held twice a year for grades 1-10 in English and Math to enable teachers to help students achieve better results through analyzing MAP test reports. Kagan Cooperative Learning Structures are used as the model of instruction that is mainly based on differentiation and interaction among the students. Our school is part of Cognia accreditation and thus teaching is project and inquiry based.


As of the year 2018/2019 Robotics classes have been integrated with science and IT classes and not as outsourced lessons. This fact ties in with our policy of providing our students with the latest in terms of learning. Robotics has proved to be a rich program that expands the understanding of students. Therefore,  we are extending the  program to grade 7 and successively to grade 8. For the third year, German continues to be a success and our students will be taking the External Exams in the year 2020. As for our Chinese Program, we are proud to announce that our one and only 9th grader, Joudi Thwaib, passed her Chinese SAT Subject.
