Principal's Message

     Michael Kellison, MS Principal

Welcome to the American Community School of Amman where the Middle School is a great place to learn and explore!  

These are the pivotal years of young adolescence. It is a time when young people begin to grapple with critical and complex life choices; they form life-long attitudes and habits of mind that will influence their behavior as adults. ACS Middle School strives to meet the unique needs of this age group by offering a challenging and relevant curriculum, rich in experiences that develop the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being of all students. Our program is based on the vision and core values promoted by The Association for Middle Level Education, the leading international organization advancing the education of all students ages 10-15.  

We embrace a Middle School philosophy that develops the ‘whole child’ and provides a culture of compassionate support during this important time of transition from childhood into adulthood. As such, our Student Profile emphasizes the importance of both personal traits and habits of learning. We endeavor to provide a safe school environment based on kindness, respect, and integrity - one that fosters a spirit of cooperation and promotes responsible and trustworthy global citizens.

This is a collaborative enterprise; students, parents, faculty, and administration partner together to ensure that learning flourishes, healthy attitudes and behaviors are nurtured, and positive self-esteem is promoted.
