The Pan American School of Bahia (PASB) is cooperatively owned by parents and operates as a non-profit, non-denominational, college-preparatory institution for International and Brazilian students. We offer an international education to children aged 2-18.
Our English-language*, International-style education strives to prepare students to face challenges as confident, principled global citizens. Our outstanding American and Brazilian programs, offered in a safe and nurturing environment, empower students to reach their fullest potential.
We also offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) which is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated Secondary School students in Years 11 and 12. The IB DP is a comprehensive two-year international curriculum that allows students to fulfill the requirements of their national or state education systems.
Throughout its 50+ years of existence, PASB has aimed to offer a quality educational opportunity for the Brazilian and international communities of Salvador. The school community reflects an ever-expanding profile with families of differing cultural, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. As the only international school in the city of Salvador, the school plays an important part in the lives of our community members. As such, PASB enjoys a positive relationship with the local community, as well as, other educational organizations in the city of Salvador and the state of Bahia.
