Dear ECC and Elementary Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the American School of Recife. Here we are committed to the academic and social emotional growth of every student through a comprehensive, engaging, caring, and safe educational program. It is our goal in the ECC and Elementary divisions to educate the “whole” child. Our highly trained staff use a wide variety of instructional resources and frequent formative and summative assessments to monitor student learning. The ECC and Elementary divisions consistently use the framework of the AERO standards as the foundation for all learning. Every effort is made to develop higher-level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation in an English language setting.
