American International School of Dakar (ISD)
With Dakar the host city of the AEC2018, we thought it timely to highlight one of our member schools in Dakar.
ISD in numbers:
The International School of Dakar began our 35th year last week.
We expect to break 600 students, a 30% increase over the past five years. Our community is truly diverse with over 55 different nationalities represented. An elementary classroom will have ten different nationalities and 6 different languages represented.
Our students had the highest scores in school history on the IB DP exams in May, with the highest scores in school history. We are an MYP Candidate School and hope to earn our PYP authorization by the end of this school year.
The new US$7million Performing Arts Center & Athletic Complex is well underway with an expected completion date of May 2019. The complex will significantly improve the arts and sports facilities for our students as well as the larger Senegalese community.
