After decades of investment, Jordan boasts one of the most advanced public education systems in the Arab world, while its capital Amman is home to scores of international schools.
Top international schools in Jordan typically follow American, British or international study programmes, employ highly-qualified teachers, and have well-equipped campuses, strong co-curricular programmes, and students from a wide range of nationalities.
Coeducational day schools are the norm, with most teaching in English and a handful providing bilingual education in Arabic and English. There are many through-train international schools offering all stages of education from kindergarten to senior secondary on one campus. There are also a few single sex schools.
Jordan’s private school sector is large, educating more than 30 per cent of all students in Amman. Private schools are taxed by the government and fees can be high. But most expatriate children from countries outside the Middle East are educated privately because public schools teach in Arabic. Education is compulsory from age six to fifteen.
