Sao Paulo - School Report Question and Answers

Are there are any problems with exclusionary behavior, cliques, or bullying at this school? Please describe any problems your children may have experienced in this area.

Unlike other countries, we did not experience any of this at BCB or in Brazil in general. - Jun 2018

There is definitely a social division between Brazilian and non-Brazilian kids - which I feel is natural given the permanent vs. transient nature of the two groups, but can still be difficult for newcomers and has not evolved much during my time at the school. My gringo son was "not allowed" by the Brazilian kids to play in the daily soccer games at recess in the lower school - and the administration has still not found a solution to this ongoing exclusion. - Jan 2018

Sometimes - but the school does a great job addressing the issue. - Mar 2014
