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 40 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.

There are many opportunities for coaching and involvement in extra-curricular activities. 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 includes over 60 classrooms, three science labs, a state of the art computer lab, elementary playground facilities and a legal-sized track and full-sized 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 the 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.
