Secratária Escolar Vera Gois and Diretora Oficial Silvia Siqueira
As an American school, Graded also provides an integrated Brazilian curriculum, which is comparable to that of top Brazilian schools. In addition to offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) and American Diplomas, Graded grants the Certificado de Conclusão do Ensino Médio (Brazilian High School Diploma).
The school is recognized by, and affiliated with, the Diretoria de Ensino Região Sul I and must, therefore, comply with Brazilian educational law. The Brazilian Accredited Program (BAP) serves as the liaison between Graded and the Brazilian government.
BAP is overseen by Diretora Oficial Silvia Siqueira, who is registered with the Brazilian Ministry of Education (MEC), and Secratária Escolar Vera Gois. Silvia, a former Graded faculty member, who has served as Diretora Oficial at leading Brazilian schools for 28 years, is a wealth of information on the Brazilian educational system.
The BAP Office is located right across Graded's Front Office. To learn more about BAP and how it may apply to your child(ren), please schedule an appointment with Silvia Siqueira (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Vera Gois (email@example.com).
