The American School of Fes – Amicitia was originally founded in 2004 by an American couple, Jim and Michelle Hasbrouck. The school’s first facility was located in the Mt. Fleuri 2 neighborhood in the new city of Fes. In 2005, the school transitioned from being a Moroccan private school into an American school with a full, standard American curriculum. As the school grew, it first moved into the Alal ben Abdellah area and then to Rte. Immouzzer in 2013.
