Superintendent's Message

Welcome to ACS! 

As a student, parent or prospective teacher, finding the right fit in an institution is paramount to wellbeing, success and happiness. The American Community School, affectionately known as ACS Amman, is an institution full of joy, laughter and learning. Our students are inspired by our rich and relevant academic program, our commitment to social-emotional wellbeing, and our dedication to developing students who make a positive difference in the world. ACS has a well maintained and safe campus filled with a team of outstanding educators and devoted support staff. 

Together, our community lives into three important statements displayed throughout campus:

  • We take care of ourselves.
  • We take care of each other.
  • We take care of this place. 

Our diverse community of learners represent different nationalities, backgrounds and approaches to learning, each celebrated for their unique and important contribution to the community. ACS students not only learn academic disciplines but, also, the dispositional skills needed to be positive and productive citizens. This learning extends beyond the classroom into our robust extracurricular and travel programs. Whether with us for one year or thirteen, students leave ACS ready for their next challenge, confident in their abilities to achieve whatever they put their minds to. 

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our school knowing that all of us look forward to a year full of learning, laughter, community and partnership!
