Amman - School Report Question and Answers

What is the climate for LGBT+ kids at this school? Are there resources they can draw upon? Does there appear to be any exclusionary behavior?

Very hetero-normative and not inclusive. This is a conservative society where people live with their parents until they marry. Being gay in middle or high school is not an option, sadly. I heard several homophobic slurs used by middle schoolers in casual conversation, who did not know better because this was socially acceptable language and there was no education at school or at home about that. - Feb 2021

The Middle East is not the friendliest of places for the LGBT community. That being said, there is a a respect that is demanded at school for differences. - Nov 2018
