CAS Lower School
The Lower School at Casablanca American School includes Preschool (K3-K5) and Grades 1-6.
The Lower School is a busy place with a lot of learning taking place. We proudly offer the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) , which empowers students to explore and inquire about the systems and processes around them. We believe in educating the whole child and strive to develop social and emotional skills, in addition to academic skills and knowledge, so students are ready to tackle the more complex learning in their school journey and later, the ever-changing world.
Each Lower School section has a lead teacher and teaching assistant with grades 5 and 6 sharing an assistant. The utilization of instructional assistants enable individualized instruction to meet student needs. Our pedagogy emphasizes differentiation and support. We offer English Language Learner (ELL) support as well as literacy and math intervention.
At Casablanca American School, we follow the Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP) from Columbia University in the United States. The curriculum is grounded in research and based on the Common Core State Standards. The program ensures a consistent literacy framework, vocabulary, and processes throughout the Lower School.
