Last semester, Avenues São Paulo adopted three nearby green spaces for caretaking and community-building. “It has a lot to do with building agency in children… so children actually feel they can change the world around them.” Watch the video below to learn more about the Pracinha Initiative.
At Avenues, we use three forms of assessment: summative, formative and standardized. Together, this assessment system allows us to evaluate multiple aspects of school and curriculum quality, and student growth. The International Schools’ Assessment (ISA) is the standardized test Avenues has chosen to assist in evaluating school quality across multiple campuses over time.
Sylvia Guimarães has joined Avenues São Paulo as director of community engagement. Sylvia has extensive experience in education outreach, non-profit management, and social justice initiatives, especially in regards to literacy.
