Amman - School Report Question and Answers

What extra-curricular activities (including sports) are available at this school? Have your children participated in these activities? What activities do you feel are missing at the school?

Tons. Basketball, cooking, bike riding, drums, etc. - Sep 2019

orchestra, guitar, drama, photography, volleyball, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, basketball, etc. etc. etc. There is so much. My daughter has enjoyed orchestra, the school play/musical, volleyball, and swim team. - Nov 2018

Basketball, swimming, golf, fencing, biking (local bike company brings a truckload of bikes for the kids once a week. It was awesome- and ICS is a little bit more out in the countryside, so it is safe), netball, soccer, lego robotics, cooking, drama, drums, lots of music choices including violin and piano, choir, henna, origami, etc. etc. Such an amazing selection, and you can sign up for as many as you want. I'm happy to pay the fees. (around 25US for some of the activities per trimester.) I can't think of anything that is really missing at school. - Feb 2018

Surprisingly, sports is not that big a deal here, breaking from what might be expected from the New England boarding school model. That is probably a good thing, there aren't really "rival" schools and culturally Arabs tend to view school for school and sports clubs for sports. As described, co-curriculars are required but include great options like rock climbing, ultimate, MUN, music, etc. - Apr 2017

There are many activities available, on a first-come, first serve basis. Bus riders could ride a late bus home after activities, which was a huge bonus. - Aug 2016
