Beliefs – As parents, we believe in the value and potential of their children’s education
As a school envisioned by parents, we believe that:
• Our children can learn better in a nurturing and multicultural community, where their achievements are acknowledged.
• Each child is an important individual, with unique intellectual, social, creative, emotional, and physical qualities.
• Our children should become lifelong learners who take responsibility for their learning and communicate effectively.
• Our highly qualified teachers and administrative staff are the foundation on which our excellent educational programs are built.
• Our academic curriculum should challenge and inspire, in order to create authentic learning experiences which require students to synthesize new concepts and realities.
• Active involvement of our school community has a positive impact on the learning process.
• It is a universal right to have an emotionally and physically safe environment.
• Our learning environments should enable children to be morally courageous.
As parents, we pay close attention to the well-being and safety of our children. Therefore, we have developed a Child Protection Policy and our staff is periodically trained to ensure that our children learn in a nurturing, safe, and healthy environment.

The Pan American School of Bahia (PASB) is an independent, non-profit parent association, governed by a Board of Trustees composed of eight parent representatives elected by the associates. This, in itself, provides an incomparable education delivery, as we are protagonists of PASB’s choices, development, and achievements.
