Welcome Message from the Head of School

It is an honor to support the students at Dar Essalam American School develop as learners exemplifying the DAS student profile; students who care about the world around them and are flexibly-inclined, who work together to problem solve, whose linguistic proficiency spans many languages, who are driven to be curious and active global citizens. I see myself as a lead learner who continues to develop my skills and competencies and I am excited to collaborate with students and colleagues in further developing the fusion of the best of Finnish and American pedagogical practices while rooted in Moroccan culture and values.

My professional background includes over 30 years of both United States public school and international school experiences. My knowledge of progressive educational frameworks and many years as a teacher, principal, and head of school give me insight that I hope will inspire Dar Essalam American School to be the premier international school in Morocco and the region. With exceptional teachers, modern state-of-the-art facilities, and teaching and learning experiences that will propel students to succeed, the opportunities at DAS are exciting and immense!

Thanks!

— Dr. Dave Botbyl, Head of School
