Upper school

I am proud to welcome to you the Upper School at Casablanca American School.

Casablanca American School opened 42 years ago in a collaborative effort between the U.S. State Department, expatriates living in Morocco, and local families looking for an American education for their children. CAS was the first International Baccalaureate school in North Africa and the first to offer the IB Diploma program.

As a college preparatory school, CAS has an academic focus. Students from CAS enroll in tertiary institutions in the US, Canada, England, and throughout Europe. In recent years, students from CAS have gone on to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the world including the University of Chicago, Yale, and Columbia University.

At CAS we believe in a whole child approach to education. As well as academic rigor, we encourage our students to be critically engaged in important issues, ethical and reflective,  and active participants in their community through service learning. Our aim is for all our students to be active learners and global citizens.

At CAS we offer the rigorous IB Diploma Program for our 11th and 12th-grade students.  In addition to a demanding workload, students are required to complete a 4000-word Extended Essay and complete 150 hours of creativity, action, and service.

Casablanca American School has a wide variety of clubs that students can participate in. The Model United Nations Club prepares students to participate in simulations of United Nations committees and travels all over the world to compete in Model United Nations conferences.  In the past few years, our students have participated in Model UN conferences Morocco, Qatar, Turkey, Hungary, Ireland, and Italy.  Our People-to-People club is a service organization that engages in service work throughout Morocco. We also offer debate, varsity and junior varsity athletics, National Honors Society, and a strong theater program.

At CAS, our goal is to develop students who are ethical, engaged, and reflective. We invite you to visit our diverse and exciting community.
