Who we are

The American School of Brasilia (Escola Americana de Brasília - EAB) is a diverse international school that provides an English-based preschool through Grade 12 education. With a focus on accessibility, EAB is an inclusive community committed to meeting all students' needs. We offer three academic diplomas – International Baccalaureate (IB), American, and Brazilian – in an environment that promotes the holistic education of each child through a differentiated learning model.


EAB is a leading international school in Brazil and has been serving families of Brasília for over 60 years. Our rich history, depth of experience, and commitment to excellence in education have made us a top choice for families in Brasilia.
We are a diverse international school community that provides an English-language-based pre-K through Grade 12 education. EAB is committed to serving all students' needs. We offer three rigorous diplomas – International Baccalaureate (IB), American, and Brazilian – in an environment that promotes the holistic education of each child through a differentiated approach.
At the center of EAB's outstanding educational program is its teaching staff, carefully selected for excellence from across the globe. Over half of our teaching staff are from the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. The other half are recruited from the very best private and public schools in Brazil.  
Being new to the EAB community this year, it is easy for me to see why families choose EAB and why our school has earned the trust of the community in Brasília. Our mission statement is truly lived by our students, educators, and families. True to our mission, EAB challenges students to be learners who inspire others to be inquirers, principled, and bold in vision. This mission is the anchor to everything we do at EAB. We believe that while academic excellence is essential, that it is just as critical that our students grow to be balanced global citizens who positively impact the world through excellence in academics, activities, arts, leadership, and service. These impacts all start while students are at EAB through our various service-learning programs, balanced athletic offerings, and robust arts programs. 
For these reasons, joining the EAB community was an easy choice for me as an educator and as a parent. After serving as a school leader at leading international schools across the globe, it was personally important that the next school I chose would be a good fit for me professionally and would also support my children in a world-class education. I feel very fortunate that my daughters will benefit from EAB's long history of educational excellence and its commitment to growing learners into global citizens. For our family, the choice was clear!
EAB is known for its family-friendliness and the value we place on relationships and community. In this spirit, we invite you to visit our school to learn more about the diverse ways in which EAB can serve your family. Please contact me or any of our outstanding staff here at EAB with any questions you may have. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you to the EAB family!
