Casablanca American School focuses on the student-centered learning, which broadly includes methods of teaching that shift the focus of instruction from the teacher to the student. It aims to develop learner autonomy and independence by putting responsibility for the learning path in the hands of students. Student-centered instruction focuses on skills and practices that enable lifelong learning and independent problem-solving. Student-centered learning approach and practice are based on the constructivist learning approach that emphasizes the learner's critical role in constructing meaning from new information and prior experience.
