Al Rajaa School for Deaf or Hearing-Impaired Children
The Al Raja’a School, located in Ruseifa, Zarqa governorate, is a renowned and pioneering institutional model for specialised, high-quality education for deaf and hearing-impaired children from kindergarten to high school ages.
Established in 1983, the school teaches sign language in Arabic and English, and offers speech therapy, auditory training, reading, writing, and the use of assistive devices as essential parts of students’ education. Al Rajaa also provides opportunities for students to take part in sports, crafts, arts, acting, folk dance, gardening, camping, and debate clubs.
The school aims to promote the integration of its students with their peers and has an impressive record of helping students graduate with a High School Diploma. The school currently employs 22 teachers, many of whom are considered experts in their field.
In the coming years, we hope to promote the methodology of Al Raja to build the capacity of other schools and centres for the deaf and hearing impaired, not just in Jordan, but in the entire Arab region.
