This is my second year here at RAS. Prior to coming to Morocco I lived and worked in Turkey, Latvia and China.

Morocco is a wonderfully rich part of the world in so many ways: Historically; artistically; geographically; culturally and linguistically. A place suffused with so much worth learning is a perfect context for a school. I eagerly anticipate my own learning in this stimulating environment.


This year will mark RAS’s 52nd year of operation. I am excited and proud to be a part of this institution here in Rabat. With a history and reputation befitting of its geographical context, I am confident that you will find RAS to be an excellent educational and social choice for your family. We have a student body that is diverse, worldly and caring, an interested and supportive community of parents, a dedicated and experienced faculty and a team of welcoming and professional support staff.


I look forward to working closely with the school community and the broader Moroccan community this year. Please feel free to stop in at any time to share your questions and concerns, to find out ways of getting more involved, or just to chat.
