The Pinheiros campus is well established and centrally located in a cosmopolitan, attractive and busy part of São Paulo. The school is a vibrant, stimulating and happy multi-cultural environment for 600 pupils from all parts of the globe. International students make up approximately 30% of the overall school population. International mindedness is valued, promoted and celebrated. 

The school buildings are interconnected converted houses, contributing to the family and caring atmosphere which defines the school. In 2020, we opened a new ‘state of the art’ primary building.  Our Alphaville campus opened in 2016 and now caters for learners up to Grade 9.

The school provides a balanced, rich, challenging and transformative education for its diverse body of students aged from 18 months to 18 years of age, most of whom are studying in English as an additional language. Learners in Years 11 and 12 follow a full IB Diploma Programme and results are excellent by all measures. Our language programme is extensive, offering first language English, Japanese, Korean, French, Hebrew, Portuguese and Spanish from Year 7 to IB Diploma. 

The pastoral system is designed around vertical tutor groups from Grades 6-10. Learners are further organised into three houses and we are looking to develop this further. There is an active and effective student council that participates actively in school affairs. There is an active support department offering both academic and emotional support for learners. The Primary section offers the IB PYP programme and the Secondary section IGCSE in some subjects and IB Diploma.
