When the International Academy-Amman (IAA) first opened its doors in 2004, it put forward a bold and optimistic mission: instilling a lifelong love of learning in its students, and arming them with the curiosity, compassion, and confidence to become the leaders of tomorrow. We aimed to foster a new generation of global citizens, able to serve as agents of change without ever losing sight of their roots.
In the years since, I have been immensely proud to witness the success of IAA’s students, embodying their school’s ethos both inside and outside the classroom. With the support and guidance of their parents, teachers, and school leadership, each graduating class raises the bar a little higher, showing just how far our youth can go when given the opportunity to realize their potential.
We have seen firsthand that a holistic approach to education is the key to nurturing well-rounded individuals. Our multi-talented students are passionate about music, engineering, coding, sustainability, design, and so much more. I am particularly moved by their altruism and ceaseless drive to give back – they care deeply about the wellbeing of others, lending their time, intellect, and ingenuity to uplift their local communities.
