Dr. Peter Bang-Knudsen


It’s an honor to serve the students, staff and community as the superintendent of the Bainbridge Island School District.

While I’m new to the position of superintendent --- I took over the helm in July 2016 --- I’m not new to Bainbridge Island. For the past six years, I’ve served as the district’s associate superintendent of administrative services, and long before that, I was a student of the Bainbridge Island schools.

I have yet a third tie to the district and perhaps the most important: the role of a parent. My two children attend BISD schools, and I know what it’s like to send them off each morning on the bus, wondering how their day will go and what they’ll learn.

Our staff works diligently to provide a welcoming and collaborative environment, and our students have an enthusiasm for learning. I am proud to be a part of this phenomenal educational system and my personal goal is to ensure every student is supported, challenged and inspired.

Best regards,

Dr. Peter Bang-Knudsen

Bainbridge Island Superintendent
