Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to George Washington Academy. 

My name is Colin Webster and I am the Head of School.  I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to those interested in George Washington Academy. 

I have an HBA in History from Queen’s University in Ontario, a BEd in Elementary and Secondary Education from Lakehead University in Ontario and a MEd in Educational Leadership from The College of New Jersey. I have also undertaken graduate work at Utah State University, Lehigh University and the University of the People.

I have worked as a teacher at the International School of Prague and at Dubai American Academy, as an Assistant Principal, Principal and Director of Curriculum at the ICARDA International School of Aleppo and Ruamrudee International School in Bangkok.  I was the Head of School at the Asmara International Community School in Eritrea before joining GWA as Head of School.   

I live in Casablanca with my wife, Ibi Venczel, and my two children attend GWA.

"For myself, I believe in building relationships with families.  I believe in a high quality learning environment.  I believe in enriching children’s lives with active involvement in not just the academic but also in the athletic and artistic.  I also believe that parents and teachers all want children and students who are generous and desire to make the world a better place."
