The Casablanca American School was established in 1973 as a Kindergarten to Grade 8 School by the Goodyear Corporation in cooperation with the Consul General of the United States of America in Casablanca. In 1984, the school expanded to include Grades 9 through 12. Originally housed in Place Bel Air near Boulevard Moulay Youssef, the school moved to a three-story villa on Rue Bartholdi near the original Romandie complex. In 1986, an additional site was acquired to temporarily accommodate the growing Upper School Grades 7 through 12. The two separate locations were meant as an interim solution until a new facility could be found. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of the CAS Board of Directors, committees, families, faculty, and administration, and the assistance of the USA Embassy and Consul General and many Moroccan officials we were able to plan and build, in record time, our impressive Nursery through Grade 12 campus in Californie on land generously donated by a CAS family. In June 2002, CAS inaugurated a new building to house classrooms for Grades Pre-First through 5 as well as a 350 seat auditorium and a Lower School library, art studio, computer lab and science room.
As an independent, co-educational day school offering an American-style university preparatory education and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (Grades 11-12) Program, the Casablanca American School continues to serve the American government and multi-national communities in Morocco’s financial center, as well as host country nationals desiring an American education. The school is a member of the Mediterranean Association of Independent Schools (MAIS) and the European Council of International Schools (ECIS), as well as a United States Department of State affiliate school accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
