The BAIS community has always been very close, almost like a family. I am thankful to my parents that they gave me the opportunity to spend my childhood in this environment, since I believe that it influenced my way of thinking, my values and my attitude a lot.
I have many happy memories of BAIS and many friends I made during my time there I continue to keep in touch with. BAIS definitely helped build my confidence and self esteem and when I fell behind or needed additional help that was always provided. My time at BAES had instilled a thirst for knowledge and determination to succeed. I now work for an executive search consultancy in London. Having lived and been educated in The Gambia has given me such a unique international perspective that is of constant use to me both personally and professionally and it is a time in my life that holds incredibly fond memories.
I attended BAIS from Pre-K to Grade 8, and those years of learning, growth and friendship are what has resonated throughout my education, life and career. Because of BAIS's amazing teachers and personalized environment, when I transferred to another high school, I was placed in a class above my current level.
Attending the University of Maryland, my first 2 years were a breeze, all thanks to my SOLID foundation that was built at BAIS. I graduated with a degree in Neurobiology/Physiology and Biotechnology. I have nothing but amazing and warm memories of the small but special school, which formed many friendships and bonds, and made me who I am today. I am currently a Territory Manager for a Biomedical company, responsible for 11 states, and the youngest person on my team of 5 who manage the entire US. I thank BAIS for teaching me to use my ambition and motivation, and to develop my leadership skills, creativity and drive that I know I wouldn’t have been able to grow somewhere else.
I’m a former student who went to BAIS for about 9 years. The experience was a great one. The teachers at BAIS are loving and caring. They just want the best for you. The educational and interactive activities left me with many enjoyable memories. Transitioning into high school was smooth for me, and I can thank BAIS for that. From this experience i have made many friends and the success I had there has carried on. I now attend Georgia Perimeter College and am majoring in Social work. A big thanks to BAIS!
I started at BAIS when I was 7 years old and have extremely happy memories of my 4 years there. The school's ethos and attitude, both within the curriculum and on a personal level was second to none and I feel it truly set me up for later life. I believe that my outlook on life and my people skills all come down to the support and teaching we received there. It was extremely difficult to leave the school community, as it served not only as a place for education, but an extended family. My family and I moved back to Britain, where I completed secondary school and I am now studying at the London School of Economics.
BAIS has the fondest memories of any school I've been to. After I left, I completed the International Baccalaureate at the same time as the American High School diploma. Following that, I attended Imperial College, graduating with honors; the University of Oxford, graduating with honors; and am about to start a management course at Harvard. I have worked for Apple and Symantec. Now, I work for Company85, a consulting firm in London serving several UK government departments, financial-services, and multinational IT integrators.
BAIS was a wonderful experience filled with hard work but a lot of fun as well. Many subjects in middle school prepared me for what I'm studying now, international business. I was involved with student organizations in middle school and it was of great interest to me; I am still involved with student organizations today. Overall, I very much enjoyed my time at BAIS, it is a memory I will never forget.
BAIS was definitely a great experience for me. I enjoyed the both the theory and practical approach of the school. I liked how my teachers always saw potential in me even with the subjects I was weak in. Looking back on my education, it is BAIS that holds the closest memories to my heart.
BAIS is an amazing school in which I had great experiences. This was such a free school which allowed me to express my views and ideas. The environment was very friendly that it was not hard to fit in. BAIS planned marvelous events and I can say that the teachers fully prepared me to get into a good school.
