The Right Environment for Learning

The world is constantly changing. The 21st Century School goes beyond academic thinking. 

Two Recognized Diplomas 

Since 1957, EAR has successfully provided an International English and Portuguese language education through its United States and Brazilian accredited programs. The majority of EAR graduates study at universities in the United States of America, Europe, and Brazil.

Diverse Community

The American School of Recife is being recognized as a modern international school not only in academic excellence but also in extracurricular and critical thinking development. We are proud of the diverse community that supports our mission and vision as well as promotes intercultural relationships, opening our students’ minds in regards to academics, socioemotional relationships, and ethics.

Beyond Academic Learning

At EAR, students learn much more than just from books. In the After-School program, students have the opportunity to be part of various clubs such as Robotics, Business, Cooking, and sports activities such as Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, and Tennis that complement the individual’s complete education.

International Immersion

EAR serves the children of international corporations, diplomatic agencies, and local families with international connections. Our students come from over 20 nations. EAR teachers, from 10 nationalities, use innovative and effective teaching practices.

Personalized Learning

EAR is a place where students are challenged and work towards high standards. Small classes coupled with a variety of small group and individual teaching and learning strategies support students with achieving these standards and realizing their individual potential. We work with rigorous curricular standards and hold ourselves accountable to those standards. These standards reflect the best practices in international education.

Strong Community

EAR promotes a strong commitment to our partnership with parents. EAR is a community of learners – parents, teachers, students, and community members, working towards common learning goals.

Admission to EAR is based on an evaluation of academic records, questionnaires, and recommendations from the former school, a personal interview with the student, and the availability of class space. Class size limitations may prevent the admissions of all students who are academically capable of benefiting from EAR’s educational programs.
