According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Gambia is located in West Africa on the Atlantic coast. It is bordered by Senegal to the north, east, and south and is slightly less than 11,000 square kilometers in size. The population of Gambia is about 2 million people and the capital city is Banjul. Gambia’s educational system consists of primary school, secondary school, and tertiary education. Primary school education is free and compulsory for all children aged 6 to 16 years old. Secondary education consists of four years of lower secondary followed by two years of upper secondary schooling. Upon completion of secondary schooling, students may pursue higher education in universities or technical schools throughout Gambia. There are a few private institutions as well as public universities that offer a wide range of degree programs from undergraduate to doctoral levels. Students may also pursue apprenticeships and vocational training programs to gain practical skills for employment in their chosen field. In recent years, Gambia has made considerable efforts to improve its educational system with the implementation of initiatives such as providing free textbooks to students in primary schools, introducing computer labs into some secondary schools, and introducing scholarship programs for students from disadvantaged backgrounds or rural areas. Additionally, the government has invested heavily in teacher training programs to ensure quality instruction for all students across all levels of education. Despite this progress, there are still major issues that need to be addressed including access to quality education for rural populations and providing resources such as textbooks for all students regardless of socio-economic status or location within Gambia.
