Students at the Senegalese American Bilingual School can opt to be either in the Senegalese or the American program, which both cover 4 years in preschool, 5 or 6 levels in elementary school and another 6 levels in secondary school (middle and high schools).
Students graduate with either the Senegalese Baccalaureate (Scientific or Literary tracks) or the American High School Diploma, with Advanced Placement coursework (AP) approved by the College Board. In 2017, SABS became one of only 1,000 schools worldwide and the only school in Senegal selected to implement the prestigious AP Capstone Diploma- an innovative diploma program that allows students to develop the skills that matter most for university success: research, collaboration, communication, as well as critical thinking and a problem solving in a cross curricular context.
AP Capstone is a two-year College Board program with students taking AP Seminar and AP Research in 11th and 12th grades. All students in the American High School Diploma Program are required to take Advanced Placement (AP) English Language and Composition, AP French Language and Culture, AP Environmental Science and AP Comparative Government and Politics, AP Calculus (for some). Courses to be offered in the near future include AP Psychology, AP Spanish and AP Computer Science. Students may also choose to self-study an AP course, if approved by their counselor and the head of their academic track. There are more than 38 Advanced Placement courses to choose from.
As part of our commitment to bilingualism, students from both the Senegalese and American tracks must take certain courses in English and in French.
