The Casablanca American School’s fundamental principles and goals are to teach and practice democratic values, encourage its students to freely and openly study and discuss differing religions, societies, cultures, and political systems with the goal of understanding the various views of each, respect each person’s right to think freely, decide for themselves, hold true to their beliefs without fear of ridicule or discrimination of any kind, and encourage those standards of conduct which are universally reflected in such virtues as honesty, justice, compassion and respect for others.
In accordance with School Philosophy, the School recognizes its mission as follows:
- To offer the best possible U.S. and international university preparatory education program, curriculum and instruction for its students.
- To provide its students with knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the people, history and culture of the United States and Morocco
- To serve as a model of U.S. and international educational methods and practices for local and third country nationals in Morocco.
- To increase mutual understanding and cooperation between the people of the U.S. and the people of Morocco in particular and other nationalities in general.
The school is committed to helping every student succeed. The school believes that high expectations and attention to individual needs will result in higher student achievement and has faith that, with few exceptions, its students can succeed in a rigorous program. CAS recognizes that this demands a collaborative effort by serious students, involved parents and devoted teachers.
Plainly stated, the CAS vision is: Casablanca American School will be the leading center for academic achievement in the North Africa region characterized by excellent academic programs.
