Lumiar School São Paulo was the first one, launched in 2003. It attends from preschool (0-2 years old) to elementary and middle school (until 14 years old). Located at São Paulo’s heart, at Bela Vista neighborhood, the school has a library, laboratory, atelier, external area, collective hall to project realization, learning modules, workshops and other activities from our education model.
“At Lumiar, children experience a democratically organized everyday life, it couldn’t be a richer experience! Learning to live with freedom and responsibility, they gain autonomy to decide what and how to learn. For me this experience is also a learning, and transformed education into something much more inspiring and transformative.”
- Maysa Crowder
“Working with the children at Lumiar São Paulo is incredible. I perceive how they get involved in the day-to-day, thinking of events, organization of places, in projects and workshops, from defining themes, proposal developments, asking questions, bringing hypothesis, experiencing, creating, practicing and sharing their findings with the group and community! It’s very good to work here because I get to learn a lot from the Masters, children and the team!”
