An IB Word School Since 1986
Casablanca American School has been a registered IB World School since 1986, being the first IB school from North Africa. The International Baccalaureate is recognized worldwide as one of the most prestigious College preparatory courses offered, and CAS has maintained an outstanding record of student success in this very rigorous program. All students in Grades 11 and 12 take courses designed by the International Baccalaureate Program. Students may be full diploma candidates or course candidates, depending on the number of courses they take on their exams. All students who successfully complete 12th grade receive a CAS diploma.
11th and 12th-grade students take six subjects (one subject from each of the groups 1 – 6 listed below). Any 11th students must choose one of the three paths that CAS offers: Sciences, Business and Humanities. In addition to studying six subjects, each student must complete the requirements for the three core elements of this program. These include: The Theory of Knowledge course, an Extended Essay and participation in CAS (Creativity, Activity, and Service).
In grades 11 and 12, course offerings for each academic year depend on student interest and availability of teaching personnel. The following is a list of courses which are generally offered at CAS. In some cases, a Higher Level (HL) and a Standard Level (SL) course may be combined.
