SIS Brasília

An attractive school campus in the center of the Brazilian capital – right next to the beautiful city park Dona Sara Kubitschek.

Since the opening of SIS Swiss International School Brasília in 2011, teachers have been giving bilingual lessons and constantly developing and refining their methods. In 2015, the school became the first school in Brasília offering the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which is proof of high educational quality and innovative learning methods.

Dear parents,

SIS Brasília opened in 2011 and has grown steadily since then.

The two school languages, Portuguese and English, act as a bridge connecting the different nationalities, cultures and languages represented under our roof – and this multicultural setting delivers a host of benefits to students, teachers and parents alike.

We focus on quality bilingual education with an emphasis on academic performance. We prepare students to achieve success in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and entry in to national universities as well as universities abroad.

We aim to foster a sense of community at the school in a variety of ways: weekly school assemblies, our buddy-reading programme on a Friday, sports day, festa junina and carnival – all are firm fixtures on our school calendar, together with the celebration of local and international holidays and traditions.

Our mission statement says, “SIS Brasília encourages students to be internationally minded citizens who think, act and reflect with a strong sense of responsibility for their own actions.” I look forward to working with you and your family to achieve this mission together.
