• Welcome From The Director

    Dear BAIS Community:

    The Gambia is in a time of great change. The recent political uncertainty created challenges for our school and our entire community, but it has not shaken our commitment to providing a safe, welcoming learning experience for all of our students. We look forward to being part of The Gambia’s future as we continue to offer a world-class, accredited educational program for students from around the globe.

    In this momentous time for The Gambia, we are also proud of all we have been accomplishing this year at BAIS. We were honored to receive re-accreditation through the year 2023 by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools, a worldwide leader in accreditation and continuous school improvement. The re-accreditation decision was recommended by a visiting team of educators from Association member schools who conducted an on-site visit last year to observe school operations and interview various stakeholders.The accreditation process allows us to continuously grow and improve as educators and demonstrates that we are meeting a rigorous set of defined performance standards.

    As a small, diverse international community on The Gambia’s beautiful smiling coast, BAIS offers exceptional opportunities for authentic learning experiences that are as dynamic and interconnected as the world we live in. I could not be prouder to be part of this caring and engaged community of learners. If your family is interested in our school or considering a post in The Gambia, I am confident that you will fall in love with BAIS just as I have. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for a visit or a conversation.


    We look forward to welcoming you to the BAIS family!
