Description

Our mission is to inspire individuals to become self-motivated learners and active citizens who demonstrate respect, act with integrity, and seek intellectual growth in a culture of high expectations. The American Community School opened its doors in 1955, when Mr. and Mrs. Ben Parker opened their residence to American families interested in a school with an American curriculum. During that first year, there were only 12 students in grades 1 through 8. As the young Kingdom grew, so did the demand for an American day school, which could provide an education that would allow students to reintegrate into the American system back home. In 1965, a small piece of land just outside of town was acquired with the vision of building a real campus. The students moved out of the ParkerÍs home and into a school with 5 classrooms, a library and a round multi-purpose room. As the city expanded, so did the school: that rural plot of land is now in the center of metropolitan Amman. Today, ACS boasts 60 classrooms, a fully equipped sports facility, a performing arts center and state-of-the-art science and technology labs. Our location in the heart of the Middle East allows for an educational experience that our students are unlikely to experience elsewhere in the world. Jordan is home to Petra, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the Dead Sea, which is located at the lowest point on earth, giving our students the unique opportunity to live and learn in a country steeped in history and tradition. An ACS studentÍs adventures are not limited to Jordan; our students frequently participate in international academic, sports and fine arts competitions. What started as a school for American residents in Amman became a melting pot of international students from over 40 countries. These students bring with them their unique traditions and cultural experiences, giving our students a global perspective on life.
