Escola Eleva is a Brazilian bilingual school that has four campuses in Brazil. Two in Rio de Janeiro, one in Barra da Tijuca, a second one in Botafogo, a third one in Recife, in the Northeast of Brazil, and a fourth one in Brasília, our capital. Across all sites, Escola Eleva students attend nurturing schools committed to academic excellence and are proud to celebrate the diversity of Brazilian culture. Our mission is to form a new generation of leaders capable of making a difference in their lives contributing to a better world.

Located on Av José Silva de Azevedo Neto, in front of the Peninsula Condominium, with an area of 16,000 m2, Escola Eleva Barra da Tijuca were intentionally built to stimulate creativity and the pleasure of learning, following world trends in education. The sports areas are made up of 3 sports courts and a society field, an athletics track, a 640 m2 covered gymnasium and bleachers. Among the internal learning spaces are 2 Maker Spaces with Media Lab, 2 libraries and auditorium. In addition, the unit has an exclusive space for Early Childhood Education, with more than 800 m2 of parks, classrooms with verandas, Mini Maker, music and theater rooms.

We educate students aged 2 to 19 offering a bilingual academic environment that enables our learners to exceed their goals and to become successful, well-rounded individuals, while positively contributing to a better world.

Our highly-qualified educators are dedicated to each and every child and to ensure they receive the best possible opportunities to achieve their full potential, while at school and beyond graduation. Internationally-recognised IB-accredited qualifications, exciting extra-curricular activities, and a unique socioemotional programme place our children in a prime position to thrive.

Students learn in cutting-edge facilities and access resources that offer outstanding modern technology to support STEAM, Sports, Humanities, and Arts classes. Additionally, each learner receives excellent pastoral care and advice from specialist University Counsellors over an extended period, aiming to provide the support they need to proceed to the best universities and opportunities in the world.

Today the IB curriculum is available on the Botafogo and Barra campuses, as these are the ones that currently offer High School education.

Since May 2022, Eleva is proud to be part of the Inspired Education Group, the leading global group of premium schools. We have since been adapting our curriculum and activities to achieve even higher standards, bringing Inspired's best practices and experience from more than 80 schools in over 20 countries.
