English schools in Latin America
ISC offers a complete, well-rounded education with an incomparable multicultural experience. It is also the only truly international school in the state of Paraná that offers an education with American, Brazilian and International Baccalaureate diplomas. The ISC educational program is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in the USA, the Brazilian Ministry of Education and Culture and the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) headquartered in Switzerland.
Students at ISC represent approximately 22 nationalities. While the percentages vary from year to year, ISC attempts to maintain a mix of between 40% and 60% of international and Brazilian students in order to maintain both its international and Brazilian cultural identity. Add to this a multicultural faculty and ISC truly provides an educational experience that encourages its students to “be international” while maintaining close ties with its Brazilian community.
Best of Brazil:
Equally as important to serving the needs of the expatriate population in Curitiba, ISC provides an excellent opportunity for Brazilians who plan to further their education and work in Brazil, having 100% approval in the vestibular. What makes ISC truly unique among most international schools is that it not only offers a challenging international education but also offers the best of the local Brazilian education. Brazilian students continue their studies in Portuguese language (reading, speaking and writing) and in Brazilian history and geography while becoming academically fluent in English.
ISC students rank at the top in the Portuguese writing assessment which is administered periodically to students in the best Brazilian and International Schools throughout Brazil.
