Teaching approach of the school

The Escola Alemã Corcovado has two braches: the brasilian (portuguese language) branch and the german (german language) branch.
90% of our students are brasilians and start out in the portuguese branch. Throughout their school career, depending on their german language ability, they have the chance to migrate to the german branch, enableing them to obtain the brasilian diploma (Conslusão) and the german diploma (Abitur), with which they can irgress in Universities in Brazil or in Europe. About 50% of the students leave our school with both diplomas.
