Welcome from the head of school

We feel privileged to know that you are taking into consideration Rio International School.
RIS is an educational institution that combines an international high quality education with a firm foundation in Christian values and principles. We believe that this unique blend of global awareness and faith-based education sets us apart and creates an encouraging environment for our students to thrive.
Here at RIS we have three pillars that we believe to be the center of our foundation:
We are intentionally international, meaning that we seek to foster a diverse and inclusive community, welcoming students from various cultural backgrounds. The school recognizes the importance of global perspectives and aims to create an environment that promotes cross-cultural understanding.
Deliberately Christian, providing a Christian education grounded in biblical principles, where our students can grow spiritually and develop a moral compass promoting character development, ethics, and a sense of purpose rooted in faith.
Purposely Academic, offering a curriculum aligned with international standards, ensuring that our students receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for future academic pursuits. Our qualified and dedicated faculty members stimulate a love for learning, encourage critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills among our students.
Our students receive both the Brazilian and American diplomas and we are accredited and certified by Cognia, which is an organization that provides continuous improvements throughout the United States and Internationally.
We invite you to visit RIS to experience our vibrant community firsthand. Witness the enthusiasm of our students, engage with our passionate educators, and see the positive impact of our international and Christian educational approach. We are confident that you will find RIS to be a place where academic excellence and spiritual growth go hand in hand.
