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.

Who we are

The Pan American School of Porto Alegre is a private, multicultural, non-profit, K-12 school, founded in 1966. We are members of the Council of International Schools (CIS), the Association of American Schools in South America (AASSA), and the Association of American Schools in Brazil (AASB), benefiting greatly from the knowledge exchange offered by a diverse community of international educators.

Educational Philosophy: The Pan American School is relationship-driven. This philosophy acts as a moral compass for all school members to develop as responsible and respectful partners. The concept of family is highly valued and successful learning is seen as requiring a three-way union between student, staff and parent.
