Welcome to the website of St. Andrew's, The International School of The Bahamas. Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular to this site, I hope you will find everything you need to know about the education and programmes we provide to our students.

Founded in 1948, we have a long and proud tradition of providing an education of the highest quality and our reputation for Ethics and Excellence is recognised nationally, regionally and internationally.

St. Andrew's was the first school in the Bahamas to be accredited to the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO), the Council of International Schools (CIS) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

Our curriculum is embedded in-line with the IBO philosophy of aiming to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end we offer the Primary Years Programme in Years 1 to 6 (Grades KG to 5) and then our own Middle School Curriculum in Years 7 to 9 (Grades 6 to 8). This is followed by the Bahamian General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE) in Years 10 and 11 (Grades 9 & 10) and the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Years 12 and 13 (Grades 11 & 12).

Proving the success of our programmes, many of our graduates have gone onto some of the world's leading universities including Yale, Harvard, Stanford and Brown in the USA, and UBC, McGill and Queen's in Canada.

However, we believe that education is not confined just to the classroom, as we offer an extensive extra-curricular and sports programme. Our sports teams compete in the BAISS (Bahamas Association of Independent Secondary Schools) and in the last twenty years we have been extremely successful in Softball, Basketball, Soccer and Volleyball. A number of our students have gone onto epresent the Bahamas in the international arena and we are very proud to have a number of Olympians (and an Olympic Champion) amongst our alumni.

If you are visiting this wonderful country of 700 islands and cays and would like a tour of our beautiful campus, please do not hesitate to contact us.
