Thank you for your interest in George Washington Academy.
Our Vision: "GWA inspires students to become multilingual, lifelong learners who pursue excellence, model integrity, and honor cultural diversity. We educate the whole person by equipping minds and building character, empowering students to serve Morocco and the global community with wisdom and compassion." GWA seeks educators who model these same qualities.
We expect GWA teachers to share our Core Values and exhibit them inside and outside of the classroom:
-Character: We believe in modeling habits of integrity, honor, and respect and encouraging service as a means to improve our world.
-Excellence: We strive as a learning community to achieve high standards through hard work and critical thinking.
-Language: We believe that multilingual graduates are prepared best to study and work in a global environment.
-American Approach: We provide quality education using a rigorous American core curriculum including instruction in the arts, athletics, and technology, preparing well-rounded students for success in the global community.
-Innovation: We believe that the ability to learn new things is a fundamental skill for the 21st Century allowing us to embrace change, move forward, and develop graduates who innovate.
Qualifications: GWA hires fully-licensed and qualified teachers. The GWA Vision Statement and our
Core Values are the guiding principles for the characteristics sought in teaching candidates. GWA prefers to hire teachers with a minimum of 3 years of experience and who have a degree in the subject matter taught.
With a cool coastal climate year-round, proximity to African and European Wonders of the World, and an enviable amount of American and national vacation time, it is easy to achieve a work-life balance at GWA. Many of our teachers and staff come to Casablanca for the sun and surf, mountain-climbing, and other travel opportunities. No matter what attracts each individual to come to Casablanca, everyone can agree that the easy pace of life, incredible Moroccan cuisine, and friendly community are great reasons to stay. We seek teachers who enjoy discovery both inside and outside of the classroom.
