An independent, private and non-profit school, owned by the Society for the International Community in Jordan (SICJ), and founded in 1953 as a primary school to serve the children of the British Military based in Amman, the International Community School today is proud to be one of the longest-established international schools in Jordan and the Middle East. Inspired by our patrons, HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal and HRH Princess Sarvath El Hassan, our roots are very much in Jordanian soil, but our outlook is unashamedly international. We are home of #themonalisaeffect, our unique brand of personalised learning, which ensures that the entire learning experience is tailored to the strengths and needs of each individual student.
The International Community School provides a personalised, high quality education, drawing on the best of British and international practice. We will continue to nurture and invest in an inclusive and diverse learning community of happy, confident and creative global citizens.
Where every child can thrive.
Students at ICS pursue the English National Curriculum (ENC), modified for our local and international context. We aim to draw on the best of British and international practice to ensure that our curriculum is engaging, relevant and enjoyable for every single child.
We are an inclusive school that supports the individual learning needs of all children. The school provides a stimulating, supportive and secure environment for all students, from Oxbridge and Ivy League aspirants to students with mild-to-moderate learning needs. The aim of the Inclusion department at ICS is to work with the children, their parents, their teachers and any external specialists to ensure that each child fulfils their true potential. All students at ICS learn from, contribute to, and take part in all aspects of school life.
