I am happy to welcome everyone to the new school year 2018-2019 that will start on Monday August 27th, 2018 with the arrival of students and faculty from over 40 countries. Every year, I am impressed by the commitment that teachers bring to the classroom, the engagement and curiosity of the students, the leadership of the administrators and the board, and the active participation of our families. There is a deep sense of community at our school.
I enjoy meeting with parents so you may be interested in attending our monthly “Coffee with the Director” which are typically held in the Elementary Library on the second Wednesday of each month at 8:30 am.
I am also excited to share that this year will mark an important milestone in RAS’s rich history. We will be moving most likely in December of 2018 to our new campus in Harhoura along the Rabat corniche. The current Agdal campus is dated but very unique and precious to many of us; it has been home to thousands of students, families, staff and faculty from almost every corner and culture of the world since the school first opened in 1962. The campus move will most definitely be a bittersweet move but this transition promises to carry with it the tradition and values that are inherent in RAS’s foundation. The state of the art facility promises new endeavors and memorable learning experiences.
I hope you have had a very good summer break and are now ready to begin an exciting new school year!
