Agadir Opens School in English

Last year the Minister of Higher Education, Lahcen Daoudi, said that English was the way of the future, and schools across Morocco should be adopting it. Now a new Moroccan School has opened in Agadir, teaching in English

The Moroccan School is the first to use Moroccan and an Anglo-Saxon school program in English, according to Colin Kilkelly for Morocco World News. Classes for the primary school are in session for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The school’s Director of Academic Affairs, Fatima Iffsate, began working on the project 3 years ago. The school opened at the same time as the launch of the international baccalaureate in Morocco.

The Moroccan school’s goal is to strengthen the local education infrastructure by introducing new technologies and techniques that meet international standards and enable students to find high-level employment in line with their academic achievements, in order to prepare them as a capable future generation.

As reported by Medias24, The Moroccan School in Agadir has high quality facilities. Its building has five stories and is 9, 500 sq meters. There are interactive white boards in all classrooms and an intranet system so that teachers can communicate with each other, the administration, and students’ parents. The school has an innovative approach with a music room, theatre, art gallery, library, sports ground, and a prayer room.
