Escola Eleva São Paulo

Rua José Antônio Coelho, 819 Vila Mariana, Brazil

Kindergarten 3 (3-yeras-old) to 8th grade (13-years-old) | 9th grade in 2025

With great excitement, we announce that in 2024 we inaugurated Eleva School in São Paulo. The Escola Eleva São Paulo campus is located in the traditional neighborhood of Vila Mariana, in an iconic building that once housed the Institute of Fine Arts. The school's spaces were developed to stimulate creativity, autonomy and the pleasure of learning, with an architectural design by the renowned firm Miguel Pinto Guimarães and interiors by the Danish firm Rosan Bosch, a world reference in architecture for education.

We start by welcoming children from kindergarten to 8th grade (3 to 13 years old), opening up the other grades every year until the last year of high school.

Our Legacy

Eleva combines innovative teaching with proven results and progression to the best Universities in Brazil and the world, with socio-emotional development, resulting in a balance between hard skills (technical knowledge) and soft skills (behavioural skills, increasingly most valued in the job market).

Most activities are carried out in groups, another strategy for developing soft skills. Many study topics generate oral presentations from students, reinforcing one of the pillars developed at Eleva – oratory skills. “Our students will certainly need to speak in public throughout their lives. That’s why we consider this practice to be very important and should be improved organically, on a daily basis”, Lucy Nunes
