IB Program at CAS
"An IB World School Since 1986"
Casablanca American School, the first IB School in North Africa, has been a registered IB World School since 1986 and has maintained an outstanding record of student success in this very rigorous program. All students in Grades 11 and 12 take courses designed by the International Baccalaureate Foundation. Students may be full Diploma Candidates or Course Certificate Candidates, depending on the number of courses they take on their exams. All students who successfully complete the 12th grade receive a CAS diploma.
At CAS, juniors and seniors (11th and 12th grade students) study six subjects. One subject from each of the groups 1 – 5 and as their sixth subject, the students may choose either an Arts subject from group 6 or a second subject from groups 1 - 4 (listed below). Three of the subjects are studied at the Higher Level (HL) and three at the Standard Level (SL). HL courses represent 240 teaching hours; SL courses cover 150 hours. In addition to studying six subjects, each student must complete the requirements for the three core elements of this program. These are the Theory of Knowledge course, the Extended Essay, and the Creativity, Activity, and Service portfolio.
