The Casablanca American School was established in 1973 as a kindergarten to grade eight institution by the Goodyear Corporation in cooperation with the American Consulate General of Casablanca. The school’s original location was near the beach Corniche, it then moved to a property at Place Bel Air. Subsequently, the school moved to Ouled Bouzid (ex. rue Bartholdi). The building at Ouled Bouzid, purchased in 1984, was already too small by the time it was occupied. 

In 1984 the school expanded to include a secondary, grades nine to twelve, section. At the start of the 1985 school year, CAS had a combined nursery-kindergarten through grade 10 program for some 131 students, housed under the same roof of Ouled Bouzid. Thirty-one of these students were in grades 7-10.

Since 1989 CAS has been located in its present location in Californie. The school has grown from its humble beginning in a villa by the sea for a handful of students to a sprawling campus with 700 students. CAS is recognized as being the first IB Diploma school in the region, and although it has grown a lot through the years, it has remained a tight-knit community focused school where parents and students alike feel welcome every day.

As in the past, the school aspires to serve the educational needs of its American, Moroccan and third country nationals through a program that is both challenging and rewarding.
