Founded in 1994 by educator Maria Cecília Materon Botelho and engineer Renato Fernando Botelho, after the model “Early Total Immersion” developed in Canada, SEE-SAW is one of the pioneers in bilingual education in Brazil. Since the beginning, the objective of its educators has been to raise citizens that are responsible, proactive, able to face and overcome challenges, and who can develop personal talents and express themselves with proficiency in English and Portuguese. In addition to the acquisition of a second language, our pedagogical project allows students to contribute positively to the transformation of the world, as they transfer knowledge acquired in an objective and contextualized form.
In the early years, children from two to four years old are predominantly taught in the English language. As of five years old, the content is expanded and the English and Portuguese languages are alternated throughout the full day period. The school routine includes the national curriculum subjects and pedagogical projects developed in the two languages.
See-Saw offers a complete bilingual education from kindergarten up to high school.
You can find all you need here to ensure your children´s routine: our annual calendar, school transportation system, snack and lunch menus, afterschool activities, requirements for substitute exams and much more.
