July 22, 2021
I'm writing to you today with the news you've all been waiting for! Our Board of Directors has approved our Leadership Team's recommendation to fully re-open our campus on Monday, August 2nd. This decision was made after careful consideration of the current COVID-19 numbers in Brasilia, vaccination rates at EAB, the recommendations of local and international government agencies, and the success EAB experienced with safe on-campus learning last year.

Understanding Your Child's MAP Results
May 20, 2021
Today, we will be sending all parents of students from K5 to Grade 10 a copy of your child's MAP results from the recent round of assessments for the year. You will receive this report via your designated email address. Here at EAB, we implement and make use of a set of standardized assessments called the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP). Usually we administer the tests three times a year for each of our students from Kindergarten through to Grade 10.
Wellness: The Social Connections
May 13, 2021
Social is one of the seven domains on EAB's Wellness Wheel. Research has long supported the importance of a social component to wellness. For example, people who are social tend to live longer, and being socially connected to others can ease stress, anxiety, depression, boost self-worth, provide comfort and joy, and prevent loneliness.
