Welcome to Beacon
Inaugurated in 2010 and recognized by the International Baccalaureate Organization as an IB World School, Beacon School started its operations as a Middle School in 2017. With more than 900 students, we opened our Campus in 2018 and by 2023, we hope to proudly see our students complete the IB Diploma Programme and High School years.
Within a caring, enthusiastic and respectful environment, Beacon provides an academically challenging inquiry-based bilingual education that genuinely values its Brazilian roots.
We develop students who are intellectually curious, have critical thinking skills and committed attitudes, and who will strive to create a more ethical and peaceful society for the 21st century.
We are very proud of Beacon's academic rigor and of our overall program, which is based on solid principles.
Welcome to Beacon!
Beacon promotes rich learning experiences in Portuguese and English, thus recognizing both languages as a means of communication throughout the program.
Through the International Baccalaureate Organization and its seal as an IB World School, we also support the international exposure of our students through experiences abroad, which occur during Middle School, focused on developing supportive, collaborative and open-minded individuals, who recognize diversity as a way to expand their view of the world.
As a school that recognizes its Brazilian identity, Beacon integrates elements of the national culture into its teaching, thus we value teaching and learning Portuguese, Brazilian History and Geography. The school seeks to contribute to raising individuals who are able to understand, act upon and transform knowledge in the world.
