Although the majority of students continued to come from the resident American community, the enrollment began to reflect the growing interest of the Moroccan and international communities resident in Rabat.
By 1974 there were over 170 students, and the school program was enlarged with the addition of ninth grade. In 1978, thanks to a large donation from His Royal Highness Prince Moulay Abdallah, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades were added. The Rabat American School awarded its first high school diplomas to a class of six students in 1979.
By the 1993-94 school year the student population had grown to 366. During this school year RAS had introduced a few courses from the International Baccalaureate program. The International Baccalaureate program continued to grow, and our first I.B. certificates were awarded in the late 1990s.
In 2006 RAS earned it’s 3rd accreditation from Middle States, using the Accreditation For Growth protocol.
Since 2008, the school grew steadily and now plans are underway for the development of a new campus within the next two to three years.
