Welcome to The Modern American School (MAS), an elite international school situated in west Amman, the capital of Jordan. Here at MAS, we foster an environment of academic excellence, as well as multicultural appreciation. Our school is co-educational and caters to all levels of both primary and secondary school, with a kindergarten, an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school. Each school has its own staff of highly trained teachers and administrators from 22 different countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia, in order to meet the individual needs of every student at every level of education.
MAS achieves the highest academic standards. We are licensed to teach the American High School Diploma, and are accredited by AdvancED, the largest community of education professionals in the world, and regularly undergo rigorous evaluations in order to provide the best education for our students. All courses at MAS are in English and are designed to be part of a college/university preparatory Program of Study, leading to an American High School Diploma. Additionally, in order to provide the best opportunities for our global students, MAS is licensed to teach the SAT Program, the EDEXCEL GCE Advanced Level Program, and the Advanced Placement Program. Seven Advanced Placement courses are currently available for High school students to have the opportunity to receive college credit, and PSAT/NMSQT, SAT and ACT Subject Test preparatory courses are offered to help secure our students’ futures. Further, many students following the American Diploma choose to also seek the Tawjihi equivalency through MAS in order to qualify for admission into Jordanian universities or be able to work in specialized professions in Jordan after achieving university education abroad.
As an international school, guided by our Vision & Mission, MAS is invested in offering educational opportunities that serve both the Jordanian and international communities in Amman. Our student body is multicultural and is comprised of citizens of 52 different countries. We revel in our heterogeneity and capitalize on the global benefits we receive from such a diverse understanding of the world. Further, our students have an invaluable advantage of being simultaneously immersed in the rich Arab culture of Jordan. Our school aspires to meet the highest standards of international education, harmoniously balanced with the Arab culture, heritage and social values. Together, the academic and cultural education that MAS provides helps to nurture life-long learners and global thinkers.
