Escola Graduada de São Paulo provides an English-language based, American-style education to children of the international and Brazilian communities.

Founded in 1920, Graded is one of the oldest American overseas schools in the world. It offers a rigorous educational program with English as the primary language of instruction. The school also recognizes the international composition of the student body in the Brazilian context through appropriate diversity of its programs, teaching materials and activities.

The Escola Graduada de São Paulo consists of the Pre-primary School, with a Montessori program for ages 2-5; the Elementary School, covering grades 1-5; the Middle School, grades 6-8; and the High School, encompassing grades 9-12. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1949 to confer the American high school diploma, Graded also offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma program and a Brazilian Studies diploma. There are full-time specialists in the areas of diagnostics, learning disabilities and ESL.

In addition to the Superintendent and his administrative team, the Escola Graduada de São Paulo has four full-time counselors, one of whom is responsible solely for college counselling. The teaching staff of 120 consists of 58 Americans, 62 Brazilians and seven other nationalities. Approximately 50% of the staff have advanced degrees.

The Escola Graduada de São Paulo year typically runs from early August to early June, with a five-week break for Christmas. Classes begin at 08:10 and end at 15:10. After-school activities are offered at all levels: games, Cub Scouts and Brownies, choral groups, dramatic presentations, clubs, academic contests and sports.

Enrollment varies from 1,000 to 1,200 students, of whom 40% are Americans and 40% Brazilian; the remainder come from over 37 other countries. Admission priority is given to US citizens and candidates from English-language schools and families.
