GWA is truly unique
GWA is a PK-12th grade school with a multi-lingual program, fully accredited by Middle States Association. We serve the metropolitan area of Casablanca, Morocco by offering an innovative, affordable, international American, preschool through high school education. The school seeks to both equip minds and build character.
GWA is the 3rd largest private school in Africa.
At GWA, your talents and experience can be used to impact others.
Over 880 young people attend GWA everyday – starting from Nursery through to 12th grade.
GWA’s student body is diverse: 60% are Moroccan, 20% are American and the remainder of our student body is made up of students from 36 countries from around the world, including France, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Holland, Jordan, India and Syria.
Many of our students are poised to take leadership positions in Morocco (and throughout the world) once they complete their educations. Our graduates have been accepted to over 220 universities or colleges in the US, Canada, Morocco, Europe and Asia.
GWA’s 200 plus staff are also international – 59% are Moroccan, 33% are American and the remainder are from several other countries including France, Canada, England, and South Africa.
There are many opportunities for coaching and involvement in extra-curricular events – GWA offers 6 varsity sports, a Fine Arts Fair each spring, and several cultural events every year.
GWA’s location is like no other
Our purpose-built 5 hectare campus is perched on a hill overlooking the ocean.
Our campus is endowed with over 60 classrooms, three science labs, a state of the art computer lab, elementary playground facilities and a legal-sized track and full-size grass soccer field. The construction of a Library Media Tech Center was completed in July 2017.
The GWA campus is located on the south side of Casablanca, a city of 5 million people, 5km from Morocco Mall.
Casablanca is a cosmopolitan city, the largest in Morocco offering a myriad of opportunities from dining & entertainment, to surfing & sports clubs, to opportunities to serve & volunteer.
Living in Morocco has its own benefits – proximity to the ocean, the High Atlas mountains, the cedar forests of Azrou and the cultural wealth of ancient cities like Fez, Marrakech and Meknes.
