Message from the Director

Dear Prospective Families:

Thank you for your interest in the Banjul American International School.  As a small, diverse international school on The Gambia’s beautiful smiling coast, BAIS offers a rigorous, US standards-based curriculum in a global context. We are fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and we are proud to be a member of the Association of International Schools of Africa and to be supported by the US State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools.

BAIS’s vibrant, welcoming learning environment honors the individuality of every student. Small class sizes allow our outstanding team of caring, creative, highly qualified teachers to challenge and support every student to become confident, curious, compassionate, critical-thinking life-long learners.

I am incredibly proud to be part of this enthusiastic, intellectually engaged, compassionate community of learners. I encourage you to learn more about BAIS by exploring this website and reaching out to me with questions or to schedule a conversation or visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to the BAIS family!

Caleb Steindam

Director, Banjul American International School
