Welcome to the Banjul American International School! Originally known as the Banjul American Embassy School, our school was founded in 1984 by a small group of American families with support from the US Embassy. In December 2016, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to change our name to the Banjul American International School to reflect our globally-minded curriculum and our diverse international community of students and parents. BAIS continues to maintain a strong relationship with the US Embassy and receives an annual grant from the US State Department?s Office of Overseas Schools.
