St. Nicholas School
About St. Nicholas School
St Nicholas School was established in 1980 and has recently added a second campus towards the edge of the city. The Pinheiros campus is centrally located in a cosmopolitan, attractive and busy part of São Paulo. It is a vibrant, stimulating and happy multicultural community of 680 pupils from 18 months to 18 years, local and international families and a highly, diverse and passionate body of teachers. International students make up a large percentage of the school population and International-mindedness is promoted and celebrated.
The St. Nicholas community is passionate about learning. We have designed an innovative, balanced and challenging 21st Century learning experience inspired and underpinned by the International Baccalaureate PYP and Diploma Programmes. St Nicholas believes that today technology is central to learning and we aim to maximise the opportunities for learners to experiment with different information and communication tools. The school provides a balanced and rich transformative education for its diverse body of learners, most of whom are studying in English as an additional language.
We expect that all new members of the teaching community are open to learn and grow and willing to contribute to the collective learning and share and support others. We value our parents and the part they play in each child’s learning. It is expected you contribute to the wider community and to do this you will commit to start learning Portuguese prior to arrival. Once you arrive we will provide Portuguese lessons.
