Leading the way

An excellent educational environment cultivates in students a passion for lifelong learning. At the Pan American School of Porto Alegre, students are encouraged to push further not only in stretching themselves intellectually but socially and emotionally. We have established reflection as an important and necessary part of the learning process. Through reflection, students are able to analyze and develop their communication, research, critical thinking, self-management, interpersonal and problem-solving skills.

We believe that the classroom is also a learning space for teachers. Education is not a one-time event, it is a lifetime experience. Our teachers, through reflection, peer observations, collaborative planning, and professional development perfect their professional practices and provide an authentic experience for students.
