The choices you make today critically impact your child’s ability to make better choices for his or her own future. For this reason, we consider commitment and the alignment of values between family and school to be of paramount importance in achieving an education for our students centered on care and understanding.
Our aim is not simply to form good professionals, but to cultivate children and young adults who are principled and have ethical personalities. We want to offer our students many opportunities to grow their knowledge of themselves and the world so that they can fully reach their dreams. For this to be possible, the school and the family need to be forthright and unconditionally support each other so that there exist no contradictions between the values and principles of each. This way, your children will experience a caring, balanced environment where they will lay the foundation upon which their future decisions and positive behaviours will flourish.
The support of families by being actively present in school life is essential to promoting a balanced school environment. We are fortunate enough to have groups of parents who support and promote a variety of actions in and around our school. Such groups, called ‘Parents in Action’, are formed by themes and parents in each group become responsible for planning and organising events, celebrations, career guidance, sustainability projects, and talks, just to name a few. The actions stemming from ‘Parents in Action’ groups aim to positively impact the whole school community.
Our school is mutually responsible for serving the community, and one of the ways we do this is by supporting parents in the education of their child via our Convivência Ética Programme. This incentive offers parents talks and discussion forums fronted by specialists who elaborate on a variety of parenting issues and themes.
We also provide support on student behaviour and social/peer interaction via our coordinators who specialise in mediating between parents and their child, parents and the school, on issues such as bullying, for example. This ensures that the school journey for each family and child is rewarding and memorable. Parents and the school are important references in the development of principled young citizens.
We are extremely proud of the wonderful achievements our students have made at universities here in Brazil and abroad, proud of the options they have as bilinguals, and proud of their professional successes. Providing a warm and welcoming environment so that students can take with them school memories replete with many rewarding experiences is the reason behind our work.
“A good school prepares its students to pass exams and get a good job. An excellent school, like Escola Internacional de Alphaville, does this and much more. For example, they show students the importance of being happy and what it really means to be a citizen of the world.”
Julio da Cruz Lima Neto, parent of two students.
“In my time, we used to just memorise. Here, the children understand what’s being discussed in the classroom. This school really gets these kids thinking.”
Janaína Luft, parent of three students.
“A school is one of the most important things we can choose for our children. I have three children still here at the school, and another who has already graduated from Escola internacional. I am absolutely sure that I made the right choice.”
Adriana Saad, parent of four students.
“It’s not only because the school is bilingual, but because the school is totally aligned with our family values.”
Andrea Salgueiro Cruz Lima, parent of students.
