The final day of school on June 17th was so much fun! Slip n' slide, dunk tank, t-shirt signing and challenge soccer matches... a great way to end a weird, great year. See you all August 31st!
The learners at Banjul American International School are all writers and Friday was a chance to share expressive readings of their latest work. From Pre Kindergarten to High School students read their pieces. #BookMonth #Gambia #Banjul @BAISGambia https://pic.twitter.com/nwl2xWNQSo
Middle and High School students enjoyed a mini engineering contest yesterday competing for an imaginary trip to The Bahamas to build a catapult that could project a ping pong ball the farther than others! Nice to be in a school where everyone collaborates kindly. @BAISGambia www.BAISGambia.org
Looking for something to do with the kids today? Consider the Family Fun Day at HypoLink Village -- with masks on of course!
What an amazing Art Show we had at BAIS today. Students from Pre-Kindergarten to High School all had pieces on display. Students took separate Gallery Walks in order to maintain separate pods with our COVID protocols, and all ages learned how to engage in art xhibits and appreciate pieces thoughtfully.

Just wish the parents and outsiders could have joined us! Hats off to the artists and to Ms Leah Woldman, BAIS Art teacher, for a powerful event.

I thank my lucky stars to be part of a school community that has WhatsApp groups with all parents that are filled with positivity and supportive parent comments, even in difficult times!

Being able to appreciate things that matter is a skill that must be taught and modeled. At Banjul American International School our students noted that they are thankful for family, friends, life, education and some other funny and touching things... Enjoy!

The BAIS Student Council organized an entirely student run Talent Show and it was amazing! Students from PK through High School (and even a teacher or two) shared their talents from gymnastics, to poetry slamming, to singing, to violin, to Tae kwon do, and more. What a lovely day it was @BAISGambia! Thanks StuCo!

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of a former BAIS student -- Oluwaseyitan Ifedayo Matthew Adetifa -- at the tender age of 17 (2003 - 2021). Seyitan's funeral was held today. Seyitan was loved at BAIS, and our deepest condolences go to his family.

BAIS -The Gambia

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. We are proud to be the only independently accredited school in The Gambia, with full accreditation through 2023 by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
