Elementary School Learning Commons

The Elementary School Learning Commons is the Learning Hub of our elementary school community. It provides a welcoming, bright, and cheerful common space that encourages exploration, creation, and collaboration among students, teachers, and the ACS Community. The LC space is utilized for class visits/checkouts, mini makerspace, author visits, teacher collaborations, and hosts a myriad of other special events such as Snuggle-Up & Read and Book Trivia. Ultimately, our goal is to continue to inspire students, encourage a culture of literacy, promote curiosity, and empower them to seek new learning experiences.

Middle School/High School Learning Commons

The Learning Commons at ACS Amman opened its doors in November 2014. In this physical and virtual learning hub of the school you will find students and teachers alike honing their expertise alongside the school's leaders in curriculum, literacy research and technology. Building off of the metaphors described by educational futurist, David Thornburg, the Learning Commons at ACS Amman offers "cave" spaces for students seeking quiet, reflective and independent learning opportunities; "watering holes" for formal and informal group study; and. "campfires" for larger expert-led instruction. In addition to housing the print and digital resources to feed the minds of our students, the Learning Commons provides an inviting cafe where food and beverages are available to nourish the bodies of our students. The learning Commons at ACS addresses the needs of today's learners, and its flexible design will adapt to the inevitable changes in education. The Middle School/ High School Learning Commons is a central gathering and productivity space. It houses an extensive library collection, small meeting rooms, a tech help desk, and a café. Students and teachers have access to books, electronic devices, printers, and copiers as well as flexible, comfortable spaces to work and relax. Ultimately, our goal is to continue to inspire students, encourage a culture of literacy, promote curiosity, and empower them to seek new learning experiences.
