The Brazilian Program is aligned with the requirements from the Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais (PCNs – The National Curricular Parameters), the Referenciais Nacionais da Educação Infantil (RNEI – Kindergarten National Reference) and the National Curricular Orientation to High School active in Brazil. Relative distances dominating technology require the skills of reading and analyzing a selection of increasingly refined contexts.In a society full of professional and cultural possibilities, marked by constant changes, the contents worked on in school cannot be singularly focused, given solely through the process memorization.
With an international and multicultural educational proposal, the International Program (IP) integrates and demands both the American and the Brazilian Curricula. Although its native language is English, students also develop proficiency in Portuguese. Spanish enters as a third idiom beginning in Grade 6. Ranging from proposed didactic activities and orientation programs, students develop autonomy, responsibility and mutual respect. Additionally, they develop the skill to reflect on their own learning through self-assessment. Upon graduation, High School students are prepared to continue their post-secondary education both internationally and in Brazil. At the end of High School, the student will be better able to progress with their studies in universities from other countries and prepared to deal with entrance exams of the principal universities in Brazil.
