Escola Eleva is a Brazilian bilingual school that has six campuses in Brazil. Three of those are in Rio de Janeiro: one in Barra da Tijuca, a second one in Botafogo and a third one in Urca. It also has campuses in Recife, in the Northeast of Brazil, in Brasília, our capital city, and is opening the sixth school unit in São Paulo, Brazil's major city both for business and finance, in 2024. Across all sites, Escola Eleva students attend a nurturing school 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 and contributing to a better world.

Located in Av José Silva de Azevedo Neto, in front of the Peninsula Condominium, with an area of 16,000m2, Escola Eleva Barra da Tijuca was intentionally built to stimulate creativity and the pleasure of learning, following the world's trends in education. The sports areas are made up of 3 sports courts, an AstroTurf soccer field, an athletics track, and a 640m2 covered gymnasium. Among the internal learning spaces, you can find a Maker Space with a Media Lab, a Dance Studio, a matted Martial Arts Studio, 2 libraries, Visual Arts Studios, Physics, Chemistry and Biology labs, and an auditorium. In addition, the site has an exclusive space for Early Childhood Education, with more than 800m2 of parks, terraced classrooms, a Reggio-Inspired Atelier, and a music class.

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, ensuring they receive the best possible opportunities to achieve their full potential, while at school and beyond graduation. Internationally-recognized IB-accredited qualifications, exciting extracurricular activities, and a unique socio-emotional 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 Urca and Barra campuses, as these are the school sites that currently offer High School education.

Since May 2022, Escola Eleva has been 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 100 schools in over 20 countries to our grounds.
