Learners Inspiring Learners
Inquisitive in Life:
EAB learners are curious, initiate their own learning, challenge the status quo, and embrace new opportunities.
Principled in Character:
EAB learners take ownership for their decisions and growth and act with integrity and compassion.
Bold in Vision:
The American School of Brasilia is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community that embraces difference with compassion, respect, and acceptance. Diversity is considered in its broadest definition to include race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, religion, political persuasion, physical, cognitive or social ability, as well as other forms of identity. In recognition of its fundamentally international and Brazilian character, EAB seeks to attract an ever greater diversity of students, faculty, and administrators. EAB recognizes that our community is particularly strengthened by the inclusion of students with diverse backgrounds, interests, and abilities and strives to meet the unique needs of all of its students.
A global citizen at The American School of Brasilia engages inquisitively and compassionately with our local and global communities, treats all of humanity with dignity, and collaborates with others to make our planet more peaceful, sustainable, and equitable.
At EAB, we're always looking to the future and aiming to best prepare our students to step forward confidently into the world. Our mission is clear: each member of our community strives to be a “learner inspiring learners.” As we think about the ever-changing world around us, it's more critical than ever that we educate a new generation of global citizens. We wanted to be certain we had a shared understanding of what it means to be a global citizen, so we gathered the opinions of our students, teachers, and administrators to help us discover what exactly that phrase means and how to bring it to life. At the end of our brainstorming, EAB came up with its own definition of global citizenship:
We're not only excited about our definition and what it represents, but even more excited about moving forward as a community to make sure we're all living this definition as we take intentional steps toward making our world a better place.
