Jubilee Institute

“Enlightened citizens are the most valuable asset a nation can possess, and that education is the finest legacy one can pass onto future generations …Although your learning will continue through your experiences in the careers and lives you choose, you will begin to be judged by your contributions to society and mankind…Give back in deeds what you have taken in learning. This will be your new responsibility and your lifelong challenge.”

- His Majesty King Hussein,May 2nd 1995

His Majesty King Hussein bin Talal was a passionate believer in the power and potential of each citizen to contribute to national development. Accessing quality education and unleashing the potential of youth from across the Kingdom and preparing the next generation for future opportunities has always been a shared vision between King Hussein and Queen Noor. Hence, in 1984, Queen Noor was asked by the Prime Minister to assume responsibility for the implementation of an educational project to commemorate His Majesty King Hussein’s 1977 Silver Jubilee. After years of thorough planning, the Jubilee School opened its doors in 1993, and later the Jubilee Institute was launched to encompass both the Jubilee School and the Jubilee Center for Excellence in Education (JCEE).
