Teaching and Learning  


At RAS, our goal is to recognize and respond to the unique needs of secondary students. We seek to do this by: 

• Cultivating the spirit of discovery through inquiry-based instruction that encourages deep understanding across a broad and balanced academic and   activities program. 

• Providing a learning environment in which students explore, question, evaluate, and analyze information and ideas through active participation and collaboration. 

• Presenting a challenging program of instruction leading to an American High School Diploma, with the additional  option of earning the International Baccalaureate Diploma. 

• Recognizing how the student's developmental phase - early, mid - and late adolescence - impacts their learning. 

• Promoting the desire to learn, the awareness that learning is a lifelong process, and the recognition that there is a wide variety of resources for learning.

• Encouraging a spirit of community among students, parents and faculty that fosters commitment to service, concern and respect for the environment and the celebration of cultural diversity. 

• Encouraging students to develop an awareness and understanding of both local and global issues and prepare for their roles as responsible citizens both  in Morocco and beyond.  

• Helping students develop the capacity to live as independent, self-motivated adults by encouraging self-discipline and independent work habits and providing opportunities for increasing responsibility. 

• Ensuring that the school environment provides for the emotional, social, aesthetic and physical development of our students.
