I am an American and IF what you posted about the school is true than no it would not be acceptable for my American children either. My children have attended many international schools from all over the world, to included British schools, and the American curriculum is by far the greatest. The schools in Brazil are weak but that is not a reflection of what a true American International School is. Please educated yourself on the difference between curriculums and school specifics.
