BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The Modern American School (MAS) is an international college preparatory school situated in the heart of Amman, Jordan. MAS fosters an environment of academic excellence and promotes multicultural appreciation with an emphasis on international connectedness and social engagement.

Founded in 1986 by the Zamel family, MAS is a co-educational school which caters to students ages 3-18. MAS is made up of a kindergarten, elementary, middle, and high school.

Our views on education stem from the principle that contemporary people live and interact in an increasingly globalized world. For that reason, schooling at MAS is not only grounded in a strong academic platform, but also in an educational experience that socializes and prepares our students to become leaders of their own world in a safe, supportive, and conducive environment.

ACCREDITATION/ASSOCIATION MEMBERSHIPS

MAS is accredited by the American Agency, ADVANC-ED (Advancing Excellence in Education World Wide), and the North Central Association – Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA-CASI). We are a member of the Council of International Schools (CIS) and accredited by the Jordanian Ministry of Education.

ACADEMIC & GUIDANCE COUNSELING

At Modern American School’s (MAS) Counseling Department we have a comprehensive counseling program that is mindful of the developmental needs of our students. The ease of accessibility of our counselors to both students and parents allows us all to work together to insure that our students’ strengths and interests are highlighted in their university applications and ultimately granting them admission to top-tier colleges and universities across the globe that are suited to their interests and further studies.

Our counseling program is designed to assist each individual student in learning skills and setting goals to reach one's academic potential. Our counselors work with our students throughout their high school journey setting up students’ schedules while advising on electives and class prerequisites.

Individual sessions with parents and students are regularly conducted, including after school orientations to continually inform our families of their children’s academic path at various stages of their high school careers. The counselors also register students in Advance Placement (AP) courses, and help our students register and prepare for college entrance exams such as the SAT I and SAT II exams.

TECHNOLOGY & EDUCATION

From our Kindergarten through 8th grade, students use iPads and specialized educational applications in the classroom specifically designed for our international curriculum. At the High School level, laptops are utilized with specific e-Book curriculums also designed for our SAT/AP Program. These resources help enhance the classroom experience, and help diversify the learning process in order to cater to our individual student needs. Additionally, all classrooms are equipped with Smart Boards that are connected to international learning communities worldwide for the latest in education.

CURRICULUM

At the high school, students in grades 9-12 follow a college preparatory program structured around the Common Core Standards and designed to prepare students for higher education in the United States, Canada, the UK, and other universities worldwide.

As an international school guided by our mission and vision, MAS is invested in offering educational opportunities that serve both the Jordanian and international communities in Amman. All courses at MAS are taught in English. In order to provide the best opportunities for our students, we have established a curriculum that encourages students to continue their studies in all of the major academic disciplines. In high school, students must earn credits (one credit per course per year) in English, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, and Foreign Languages. They may also choose from a wide variety of courses in fields such as Engineering, Arts, and Technology.

Additionally, we prepare our students for College Board standardized tests that include the PSAT/NMSQT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, as well as the Advanced Placement (AP) exams for our top achieving students. On average, we offer six AP classes per year taught by certified teachers.

At MAS, we are able to achieve the highest academic standards by supporting all of our students in their academic work towards earning the American High School Diploma, which serves as the foundation for further college education. As our students enroll from schools across the world, an international atmosphere is ever present. We strongly encourage our students to exchange their cultural experiences and heritage while embracing Jordan’s Arab culture and identity.

FACILITIES

At MAS, we offer a wide range of facilities for our students. Two campuses house our classrooms, each of which contains an interactive board and a variety of other instructional tools, in addition to administrative offices. Five information technology labs, three science labs, three media resources centers, and three arts studios support instruction. Our multi-purpose hall and 375-seat theatre are perfect venues for our students to celebrate their knowledge, talents, and accomplishments. Finally, MAS provides two sports fields, two state of the art gymnasiums, three cafeterias with a focus on healthy eating, and four libraries to nurture the mind.
