The Jubilee School. The Jubilee School (JS), founded in 1993, is an independent, non-governmental, not-for- profit, residential, co-educational secondary school for the duration of four years (grades 9-12), that promotes academic excellence and provides a unique opportunity for outstanding students to reach their highest potential.
Mission. Contribute to the development of future leaders committed to serving their country and capable of addressing global challenges by advancing national and regional educational standards through the development of innovative curricula and quality programs.
Educational Program. The Jubilee School provides a comprehensive educational program that includes both compulsory and elective courses. The compulsory courses are mandated by Jordan's Ministry of Education (MOE), the British International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and The International Baccalaureate. Concurrently, the students study nine out of over 40 elective courses. Additionally, a prerequisite for graduation is the successful completion of a Graduation Project and 120 hours of community service.
In addition to the Academic Program, the school focuses on the interpersonal development which is a variety of scheduled classes and training workshops that allow students to be critical thinkers capable of effective communication and innovation in a new economy that prizes individual excellence.
Extra-Curricular Program. The School is distinguished by its activities. All students are exposed to a variety of experiences on both national and international levels. They are offered opportunities to meet and converse on current issues and future challenges with politicians, academicians, economists and social leaders. They are also encouraged to design and implement research studies and surveys, as well as to take part in student-exchange programs, competitions, workshops and seminars, computer networking, camping and voluntary work in Jordan and abroad.
The Students. The JS brings together approximately 500 students from various socio-economic backgrounds and geographic regions in Jordan, majority of whom come from families with limited financial sources, and from areas and social environments that lack adequate educational and life counseling resources required to nourish their unique intellectual capabilities. Their diversity is a living model in pluralism, tolerance and democracy.
Each year, around 150 students from public and private schools are selected to join the Jubilee School. JS employs rigorous multiple-criteria admission system based on exceptional students' academic performance and demonstration of leadership potential.
