The Banjul American Embassy School provides an accredited American style education. There is a numbering difference between the British year system and the American system. A scale is used for purposes of grade level placement at BAES for students coming from British-based educational systems.

    Some national school systems (particularly in the southern hemisphere) have different start/finish dates than the Banjul American Embassy School and will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. If a child has just finished the equivalent of our grade six in one system in December, for example, and is transferring in January, we recommend that the student complete the grade six with his/her peers at the Banjul American Embassy School.
