Word From Founder

You are here

Greetings and welcome to MAS, 

As the son of Palestinian immigrants in the United States, growing up in Queens (NY) in the 1950’s, I regularly found myself at the crossroads between my Arab upbringing and the flurry and excitement of life that is New York City. I quickly realized that success in life relies on one’s ability to combine the best of multiple worlds. This early theme soon became the guiding principle that would be the foundation of the Modern American School.

My vision has been to create a fundamental change in the educational process in Jordan by establishing a school that embodies these notions of diversity and internationalism. I believe that a strong educational background based on these principles prepares our students for life after school in an ever-changing world.

Thirty years after its doors opened, the Modern American School is now a landmark in the educational landscape of Jordan, leading the way for future generations who aspire to become agents of change and future leaders of our world.
