WE ARE LAND!
Land is the follow-up of Gurilândia for the students from the sixth grade of elementary school on.
A SCHOOL WITH OPEN WINDOWS TO THE WORLD.
We combine the best of traditional school with modern knowledge and practice.
Our avant-garde project unites academic excellence, development of life skills and international mentality.
Here, the student is encouraged to be someone who understands and influences people. Someone able to act in a participatory way for an economically less unequal world, environmentally more balanced and socially just.
Form a new generation of leaders who can make a difference and contribute to a better world.
PILLARS OF LAND SCHOOL
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE A demanding school with strong teaching, focus and discipline. We work in a contextualized way so that the student can connect what he studies to what he lives.
INTERNATIONAL IB CURRICULUM AND EXCHANGE BETWEEN IB SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD Through the Middle Years Programme, the student can study at any IB school around the world because the curriculum is the same. Just choose in which country and when you want to study.
MULTILINGUALISM We are a Brazilian school. However, here we speak Portuguese, English, French or Spanish, from elementary school to high school. Our curriculum is comprehensive, rigorous and with a sensitive eye for the community of which we are a part of.
ABILITY FOR LIFE We know that academic knowledge alone is not enough to achieve success in life. It takes more. Proactivity, perseverance, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and curiosity are some of the skills essential to a student's personal and professional success.
INTERNATIONAL MENTALITY Having an international mindset presupposes understanding the world and its complexities. Being a global citizen is to recognize yourself and others as agents that promote change and value responsible behavior. Identity and diversity, ethics and justice, health and education, the environment and sustainability are themes present in the Land's education.
LEARNING SPACES A Land tem ambientes físicos vibrantes, bem conectados, que encorajam e apoiam tipos diferentes de aprendizagem. A flexibilidade, mobilidade e transparência são essenciais em uma escola moderna. As evidências mostram que o design físico de um espaço tem um impacto nos resultados dos alunos. A neurociência comprova que a simples mudança de espaço já motiva o aluno a aprender mais.
FLIPPED CLASSROOM Short videos about the class are viewed at home before the face-to-face class, while the time in the classroom is dedicated to doing exercises, projects and discussions. During in-class classes, teachers have the role of being mentors, mentors, encouraging questions and debates.
COMMUNITY SERVICE The Land student has community projects as an essential part of the curriculum. Engagement in humanitarian causes is the pillar for the formation of the conscious citizen.
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY The best of design and the best of technology together to promote learning. Arts – visual arts, music and theater. A curriculum that combines creativity with emotional and social expression, resulting in exhibitions, stage productions and musical groups.

personal project A psychological service integrated with the curriculum, with a psychologist who closely follows and guides the personal demands of the students.
TEACHERS WITH MASTER AND/OR DOCTORATE DEGREES WORKING WITH GLOBAL CONTEXTS AND SYNERGY Team formed by professionals experienced in their fields of knowledge, but with constant training in international education. All united by the same global context, focused and integrated in the same goal.
Electives We will offer students, from the 9th year, a set of optional subjects in English and Portuguese, to broaden the student's education. The electives are: entrepreneurship and business / law and justice / creativity and communication / technology and computer science.
INTRODUCTION TO THE RIGHT Students learn basic notions of law as a way to be more active in the society in which they live.
GOOGLE CLASSROOM The Land has vibrant, well-connected physical environments that encourage and support different types of learning. Flexibility, mobility and transparency are essential in a modern school. Evidence shows that the physical design of a space has an impact on student achievement. Neuroscience proves that simply changing space already motivates the student to learn more.
MOBILITY IN THE ROOM All the furniture on earth has wheels, so the teacher organizes the classroom throughout the day in whatever way he thinks best. In groups, in circles, queues, etc... The mobility of the classroom increases the motivation and interaction between students and teachers.
