Welcome from the Head of School
Welcome to George Washington Academy.
Welcome to George Washington Academy where this year we are celebrating 25 years of excellence in fulfilling our vision of “Equipping Minds and Building Character.” At GWA we educate and elevate students by providing a comprehensive academic experience in a warm and welcoming environment in Casablanca, Morocco. Students and families at GWA come to us with a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences. One thing all of our students and families have in common: they are looking toward bright futures built upon their learning and experiences at GWA.
As Head of School at George Washington Academy, my commitment is to ensure that our students benefit from strong curricular and character foundations, beginning in Discovery and culminating in graduation from grade 12. GWA graduates are accepted to competitive colleges and universities across the world, and later find success in their chosen professions. Together, we will continue that strong tradition and expand upon it as we respond to the ever-changing world around us. It is my honor to welcome you to George Washington Academy and I look forward to serving you now or in the future.
About Wendy Rubin
Dr. Wendy Rubin came to George Washington Academy in August, 2023 after a long career in educational leadership in the United States. Most recently, Dr. Rubin served as Superintendent of Schools for eight years in Englewood, Colorado. There, she oversaw a system of nine separate schools, including one early childhood school, four k-6 schools, two middle schools, and two high schools. Prior to becoming a superintendent, Dr. Rubin was a building principal for 16 years at the middle and high school levels, and led large schools with as many as 2200 students. She began her career as a middle school English language arts and social studies teacher.
Accepting the Head of School position at GWA represents a lifelong dream of being able to live, learn and serve as an educator in an international school. Her husband is also an educator (also called Dr. Rubin!), and she has two adult daughters who will be back and forth between Colorado and Casablanca as their schedules allow. She is thrilled to be at GWA and to be in Morocco!
