The British School, Rio de Janeiro

Rua Real Grandeza 87, Botafogo, 22281-030 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The school offers an English-speaking, British-based program within a bicultural environment. During the primary years, pupils follow England's National Curriculum. Secondary programming leads to the IGCSE and the IB Diploma, and the British School also delivers the Brazilian curriculum. Practical experiences—evidenced through day trips and longer residential excursions, Model United Nations and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award—enrich classroom learning. Community service, sports, music, drama and other opportunities in the arts are especially popular elements of the extracurricular program. The school consists of two units: Zona Sul (comprising the Botafogo and Urca locations) and Barra.
