School in Morocco for Peace Corps Day 1998
I worked in an orphanage in Rabat so it is hard for me to remember the public school calendar. Most schools were organized on the French system. I know they would go home for a lunch siesta and then return to school. Most kids went to school from ages 5 to 18. There was a great deal of rote memorization. Most children attended from Monday to Friday, but some students went on Saturday too.
There were many national holidays and shorter days during the month of Ramadan. Summer vacation was like our summer vacation period in the States.
I taught at the Rabat American School. That school was organized much like a school in the United States.
