I recently experienced awe when I came across the Avenues World Elements. A table from long- ago chemistry lessons suddenly recalled the stars from my childhood

Avenues São Paulo Creative Team

Starting a new school is a life-changing experience. We met with the first families that started at Avenues New York in its first year, six years ago. They are just as excited for the arrival of Avenues São Paulo today as they were on that first, first day in New York in 2012. I invite you to view the video below to hear firsthand what it was like for them to join "our" school.
