Parent's Review of St Nicholas School in Sao Paulo, Brazil

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

St Nicholas School

In what town or city is this school located?

Sao Paulo

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Tiny Tots 1-Year 12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Bus or car.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The school is small, which makes it have a cosy atmosphere. Facilities include four science labs, a small assembly hall, a yoga studio, indoor and outdoor courts, three ICT rooms, a synthetic sports pitch, exhibition areas, two libraries and study areas. Extra curricular activities are given either by teachers or students (older students) which includes sports. Like trampolining, football, volleyball, handball, basketball and rugby. Other activities are: 3D paper craft, making origami, learning new languages, singing in Spanish, music, art and design and drama.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Offers native language classes, including Korean, Spanish and some others. Also, it offers support for the children who will need, like English as an Additional Language, which I find very helpful for the children. Also curriculum support (general) which qualified teachers help students with their homework, preparing for tests, etc. because some don't know English well, and need help from teachers for preparations.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There is a parent teacher organization. Members usually help local charities and institutions, and they prepare special events for school, like International Day and Festa Junina (Brazilian national festival). The parent teacher organization meets every while.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

- Very good school, support students who need. - Is not a competetive school, but instead, tries to help everybody achieve what they want to achieve.
