Year after year, we are amongst the top 50 schools in the country, according to ENEM – always seeking new methods to develop students’ knowledge and attitudes, with a sense of responsibility and respecting ethical principles.

“I have two children studying at Instituto GayLussac since kindergarten.  In 2015, Caio will be enrolled in the 6th grade and Julia will be enrolled in the 1st grade of high school. They love the school. They see GayLussac as a second home, the place where beautiful stories are created, and where cultural and emotional development is possible. Their best friends are here.  They trust the school, the employees and their classmates, and so do I and my husband Yamato. We trust this school with the future of our children. Thank you, GayLussac!”
