The American School of Marrakesh is an independent, non-profit, co-educational, college preparatory day school. It offers a U.S. curriculum based on the AERO Standards (American Education Reaches Out) to both Moroccan and international students, from age 2 to grade 12. About 62% of our students come from local Moroccan families. 15% are French nationals, while Americans are at 7% of the general student population. The remaining 16% of our students come from the UK, Canada, Spain and various other countries. For the majority of our students, English is a second or a third language. They gradually learn their new language and are quickly able to study any subject in English.
Our focus on educating the “whole child” includes the teaching of values such as honesty, integrity, kindness, and responsibility. The development of respect for one’s self and others is a major goal for all members of the ASM school community. These values guide our efforts as educators and help our students to become true “global citizens”. We hold high expectations for all students and we work with each child to help her/him grow and develop to his/her full potential. The school is organized into two sections: Lower School (Grades PK-5); and Upper School (Grades 6-12). ASM is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
