The American School of Benguerir

The American School of Benguerir is a non-profit, independent, college preparatory school committed to providing an inspirational, safe and balanced learning environment. The school will open preschool and elementary divisions (Age 2 to Grade 5) in September 2021, and Middle and High school divisions in September 2022 in brand new facilities.

ASB will be part of the well-established family of schools governed by the Board of Trustees of The American School of Tangier Corporation. ASB will be a sister school for the American School of Tangier (Opened in 1950) and The American School of Marrakech (Opened in 1995). Both schools are accredited by The Middle States Association; ASB will apply for accreditation by MSA and the International Baccalaureate Organization.

Located in the town of Benguerir, about an hour from the well known city of Marrakech, the school is designed for the children of foreign and local families working at University Mohammed VI, Polytechnic, and for children of the local community. The school and the university are at the center of the future "Green City of Benguerir", a city of more than 100,000 inhabitants to be built in the next few years.

The educational program at ASB will be based on U.S. standards and benchmarks. Students in grades PreK-12 will receive instruction in English in the areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Art, Music, and Information Technology. As for languages, Arabic will be taught starting in KG3 (five-year olds), while French will be introduced in Grade 2.

Students will be exposed to a broad and balanced program to nurture their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development, and to prepare them to be well-rounded individuals.

The school will provide a wireless environment. In addition to the Computer Lab, each class will be equipped with a computer station and an interactive projector. Students will also be encouraged to bring their own devices when appropriate. The educational program will also be supplemented with a wide range of online licenses and software (Encyclopedias, Online Library, IXL Math & English, etc.) to allow teachers to integrate technology into daily instruction and to strengthen teaching & learning.

Sports and co-curricular activities are a very important component of our program. We will have dedicated teachers for Physical Education, who will introduce a varied program of sports and activities, including field trips, to every class. Our teams will compete in inter-school and regional tournaments.

We will offer a stimulating after-school program to students in Grades PreK-12 covering a range of classes including sports, visual arts, choir, drama, dance, Moroccan Arabic, Spanish, Model United Nations, debating, Math contest, gardening, chess, robotics, community service and creative writing.
