School Building and Opening Hours

A modern, urban learning environment in the heart of Brasília.

At SIS we are convinced that the place where students learn has a decisive influence on how they learn. At SIS Brasília, we therefore place great importance on an open school building that provides a welcoming atmosphere to students, staff, parents and guests alike, thus creating a pleasant overall environment.

The school building of SIS Brasília is centrally located in the Asa Sul district of Brasília, right next to Brasília’s largest city park with its spacious gardens, lakes and walkways. It has many outside areas for students to run, play and socialise. In addition to the spacious classrooms, we also have a range of special-purpose rooms such as an art studio, a library, a science laboratory and an indoor physical education room, where even our preschool students can roll, jump and play.

Our large indoor sports hall hosts a variety of sports lessons weekly, and it is where we hold our weekly school assembly for all year groups on a Friday morning.

Our day-school structure means that our cafeteria is a key part of school life, centrally located in the building with bright sunlight illuminating the room.

In the adventure park behind the school building, there is a playground where younger children can climb, play balancing games, or use the slides and climbing structures.


Opening Hours

At SIS Brasília, caregivers can drop off students from as early as 7:35 a.m. and pick up can be as late as 6 p.m. Lessons are from 8:00 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Our office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. 
The school adheres to the official school holiday calendar of the federal district of Brasília.
