 Learning Technology Center

The school is considered a pioneer in establishing its Learning Technology Center which specializes in producing teaching materials that help students be engaged in the lesson. This center contains a video library, slides, transparencies and other various equipment such as: overhead projectors, TV and video sets, maps and learning charts. Computers are mainly used for:

   - Devising and producing suitable teaching aids in cooperation with teachers.
   - Designing computerized lessons in cooperation with the IT Team and other parties in the school.
   - Training teachers on using various teaching aids and technological equipment available at school.
   - Supporting all the school activities that require technological support.

The Kindergarten is located in a nearby separate building called Wahbi Tamari Kindergarten. The students who finish the KG stage at Wahbi Tamari Kindergarten join the NOS for Grade one. The NOS and the Wahbi Tamari have different school administrations and the administrations of both schools report to the Orthodox Educational Society.
It is worth mentioning that the school graduates continue their college education at competitive universities locally and abroad due to their excellent academic records. Many of our graduates are now holding prominent positions in the private and public sectors.


NOS follows the Jordanian curriculum assigned by the Ministry of Education(Grades1-12), the British Curriculum IGCSE (Grades 9-12) and the Cambridge Program(CP) for Grades 1-6.NOS which adopts a different English and French curriculum from that of the Ministry of Education.
