As a parent, what are the major plus points for sending your child/children to this school?
cooperating teachers and some of the staff

teachers are good hearted but no evidence of proper certification when I asked
In what areas do you feel the school needs improvement?
curriculum
facilities are poorly maintained
transparency in policies at the beginning of the year
transparency with teachers most of whom are not happy with the clarity of the contractual agreements
scholarships
canteen food
rigid financial policies that don't make sense should be removed
most importantly, parent feedback should be resolved not simply geared with no action taken
What advice would you give to other parents thinking about sending their child/children to this school?
study all schools in Morocco before engaging with SAC
perhaps English language schools are not up to good standards yet due to lack of proper competition,
if you could, go to a school that teaches in English and French, lots of good ones in morocco
I heard George Washington is more prepared academically
