On October 30, 1983, following the Deans' Council resolution no. 415/83, the Model School was founded. Teaching the curriculum of the Ministry of Education through modern methods and developing the students psychologically, mentally and emotionally were among the main goals that the School aims to achieve.
Other goals include developing the curriculum in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and other institutions and providing an atmosphere suitable for research in co-operation with faculty members on campus.
As a result, the School started its operations during the academic year 1983/84 for the elementary and preparatory levels at that time. Systematically, it expanded until the academic year 1986/87 when it opened the first scientific second secondary class (12th grade).
Dean of the Faculty of Educational Sciences heads the School board. The board, which plans the School's educational policy, holds within its members the School headmaster and a number of experts in the field of education. The technical supervision is taken up by a specialized committee that follows up on the teachers' performance and development in the School.
The School tries to reinforce its relationship with the local community. Activities such as contacting society's corporations and conducting visits and workshops help in strengthening the relationship between students and their local environment. Parents also play an important role in the educational process through the Teachers-Parents Council, which is elected annually.
In order to serve its goals, the School is continuously working on improving its facilities and methods. It hopes to add new buildings to be able to attract a larger number of students, as well as building a specialized gym and swimming pool to reinforce athletic activities. In addition, the School updates its other facilities such as the music room, workshops and arts shop as often as possible. Moreover, the School seeks to increase its staff competence through specialized training courses.
Recently, the School witnessed an important transition in the school's computer education. Two completely equipped computer labs were added, both of which are connected to the Internet. The School also received as a gift, a collection of valuable books from the British Council. Those were presented officially to the School following a visit by HRH Princess Sumaya Bint Al-Hassan.
At the international level, the schools' students took part in the French-speaking International Theatre Festival in Paris and came in an advanced position. Also under the supervision of the French and Music teachers, the students participated in the First French Song Festival in Jordan and won the first prize.
Academically, the School manages to score high and do well in the secondary certificate exam.
