American School of Marrakesh
At ASM, we work with each child to help her/him grow and develop to his/her full potential. We hold high expectations for all students and work, in partnership with parents, to see that each child meets or exceeds our expectations. 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”. The school is organized into two sections: Lower School (Grades PK-5); and Upper School (Grades 6-12). The educational program at The American School of Marrakesh is based on U.S. standards and benchmarks. Students in grades K-12 receive instruction in English in the areas of language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Beginning in Grade 1, all students study Classical Arabic for one period each day. Beginning in Grade 5, students also have French classes for one period each day. Our students also attend physical education, music, and art classes each week. The computer lab at ASM is available throughout the week for students in Grades K-12. Children in grades K-5 have regularly scheduled library visits on a weekly basis.
ASM is accredited by MSA (Middles States Association).
