Message from the Superintendent

Dear Graded Community,

Greetings and welcome to the Graded - The American School of São Paulo website.

Founded in 1920, Graded strives to inspire, challenge, and ensure the success of each and every child. Through the implementation of our Strategic Plan - A Commitment to Every Student’s Success, we will focus our efforts on three comprehensive themes: Be Successful, Be Happy, and Be Involved. We are confident students will live our vision from the minute they enter our school throughout their adult lives. Focusing on personalized learning and a balanced and positive school climate in which all students engage in activities, athletics, arts, and service, Graded strives to empower students to reach their potential and positively impact the world.

Our school’s long and proud history is well deserved and is supported by a visionary board, engaged and active leaders, and world-class educators. Around the globe, Graded is known as a premier international school. While our reputation brings us great pride, we continue to challenge ourselves and, in service to our students, work to improve our practice every day.

We hope you enjoy our website. It is a window into our school and an opportunity to understand the wide range of options we offer our students. If you are in the São Paulo area, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We would love to show you our campus and thriving community of students, parents, and faculty.

One School… One Community… One Graded.
