Since opening its doors 40 years ago, Casablanca American School has relied on the support and generosity of its community to grow. The school was founded in 1973 when the company GOODYEAR rented space near Dar America and started a small school that would prepare children of expatriate families for American schools and universities. In the 1980s, the school raised money from business partners to buy a villa in Romandie quarters. Throughout the 1980s, the demand for an American Type Education grew and created pressure to expand even more. With the assistance of the Sajid Family who donated the actual land and the support of Mr. John Randolph, and other partners, construction began in 1985 and the current campus opened in 1989 with the Randolph building, the Pre-school building, library, cafeteria, a GYM, a soccer field and an infirmary. Over the next decade, CAS became an important resource for the American/Moroccan community in Casablanca. Since then, fund-raising has continued- with significant help from alumni, the PTA, parents, and corporations- to inaugurate in 2002 the Lower School Building with its classrooms, Library, Art Studio Counseling office, the Osman Theater and two beautiful artificial fields.
