SIS Brasília

An attractive school campus in the centre 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 (Portuguese and English) 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,

Educating our children to the changes and demands of our century is not a simple task. The present world takes a critical look at us, wanting to see if we have the ability to create and innovate. Are we able to use well-worked social and emotional skills to establish balance and become agents of change in society and in our own lives? SIS Brasilia proposes to be a protagonist in this task alongside you.

We are part of the SIS Swiss International School network. A network comprised of more than 16 schools, based in Switzerland, Germany and Brazil. The exchange with the other schools of the SIS International group is a reality.  Activities that connect students and schools  throughout the year include sporting competitions, international travel and mathematical challenges.
Our students experience a multicultural environment, with bilingual teaching (Portuguese and English) through the immersion method. All classes and investigations are done in both languages which guarantees a secure space for students to investigate and develop a deep and lasting knowledge.

Our teaching proposal is accredited through the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). An organization that has developed the best practices in international education for more than 50 years. We are the only school in Brasilia to offer the IB Organization's Primary Years Program (PYP).

We constantly seek to create and develop of a strong sense of community at our school, where values and principles contribute not only to the academic formation, but also to the formation and development of the young citizen. As our students spend most of their day in school, we understand the importance of the school and family partnership, it is fundamental in this journey. Providing a safe, open and welcoming environment is our commitment.

It will be a pleasure to receive you and show you in more detail what our mission and the work developed in the day to day are comprised of. We are extremely proud of the children we are forming.
