ISD Director Search

Starting in August 2022

An international search is now underway to find the International School of Dakar’s next Director, who will begin to lead our community starting in the 2022-2023 school year. The Board of Trustees has assembled a Director Search Committee and retained RG175, a highly regarded recruitment organization, to work with the Search Committee. Continue to check back as we post more updates throughout the search process.

Life in Dakar

Welcome to the land of 'Teranga,' the Senegalese concept of hospitality. Senegalese people are welcoming, warm people with a rich culture and history. Life in Dakar is marked by trips to local markets, sandy beaches, and year-long sunny weather. Its location on the tip of the continent makes it ideal for water sports, including surfing, snorkeling, kite-surfing, and more! 

Senegal is both politically and economically stable. Thanks to political stability, the ex-pat community in Dakar is thriving and there are many delicious restaurants and modern supermarkets. There is also a large tourism industry, with high end hotels, resorts, and infrastructure to accommodate international tourists.
