The international curriculum offered is taught in English. The formal curriculum is guided by the Brazilian and British National Curriculum and the IB Programmes. A broad approach of concept-based learning encompasses the humanities, arts, sciences, mathematics, and information technology. An important element in the curriculum are the Portuguese language subjects, which include Brazilian literature, Portuguese language as well as the history and geography of Brazil.

Throughout the primary school we offer the IB PYP, in the secondary school we offer the IB MYP and the IB DP in the last two years. IGCSE exams are taken in the main subjects in MYP5. Pupils will conclude their secondary education having also obtained their Brazilian studies diploma.
