International School Options in Casablanca
Whether you are planning a move to Casablanca or are already here and thinking of switching schools, the school you choose for your child will most likely guide where you will decide to live.
In the Casablanca area, we have a growing number of schools that teach in English – some following the American system and some the British. The IB is also offered. Additionally, the French and Spanish state schools and the private Belgian schools are options for families that would like their children to study in a language other than English.
We would be glad to talk with you individually about school options and provide more tailored information. We can also help connect you with admissions staff, set up visits, etc., at the various schools. However, to help get you started, we’ve put together a list of schools that teach in English (in alphabetical order, not in order of preference) and also a bit of info about the French/Spanish/Belgian options.
