Despite being a new school with its own methodology, Concept is already recognized worldwide by some of the leading educators and references in education around the world.
New Technology High School Director
Concept School is challenging education in Brazil to reach the highest levels. The passionate Educators Team committed to authentic and holistic learning is setting the stage for their students to become future leaders in a constantly changing world.
Professor and researcher at Habits of Mind Institute
Concept School is raising international schools standards around the world. As I enter the beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities, I have been transformed and touched by the culture warmth and the commitment to excellence that I have discovered. The managing team is dedicated to offer to their educators innovative professional development from such concepts as Visible Thinking (Project Zero-Harvard University) and Habits of the Mind (Bena Kallick and Arthur Costa). Concept has the most active, creative and dedicated educators I have ever seen. They have the skills needed to inspire, teach, and mentor even the youngest students.
Head of Elementary School 2
Educators and Concept School’s leadership intentionally focus on leveraging cultural forces that contribute to a flexible, engaging, question-rich, learning focused approach for those who educate. From the moment you enter the building, it becomes clear that the students' thinking vibrates, their voices are valued, and understanding is occurring in a meaningful and powerful way.
Specialist in education and technology by Harvard and Yale
The school we have today is outdated not because it lacks technology, it emphasizes socio-emotional skills, or it does not reach everyone. It is no longer worth it because the goals are wrong. Until today people focused on individuals development. But Education has to improve the world - people’s development is part of the process. This is the main message that I want to leave as the speaker at Concept São Paulo launch.
Co-author of Making Thinking Visible
In order to classrooms to be rich learning spaces, schools must be rich in thought and reflection for those who lead learning. I think it is impressive that Concept School creates time and space for educators to be students of their students.
Director of teaching and learning
Concept School reflects the best practices that aspire to innovation and creativity, nurturing, inspiring and empowering all members of the learning community. It strives to cultivate lives that flourish and directly impact other people's lives toward positive change.
Helsinki Education Secretary
If we want to develop the new generation with new skills and competencies for the future, we need to rethink education. A school of the future is built on an intelligent learning model that engages students to understand the reasons for learning. I encourage Concept School to be the place of greatest impact on education in Brazil. Let's create the future together!
Researcher of psychology, education and neuroscience
Concept School is a place where curiosity is aroused, interests are explored, and every child has a chance to find its own place in this world.
As students take the lead in the learning process, their interest and engagement increase, and learning is more meaningful. Teaching in real life means challenging students to take initiatives to grow, act and improve personal life and their community. Through frequent contacts with Concept School’s director, I have known how this is a new and welcome reality in Brazil.
American School the Mumbai Director
International Leader of the year
Many schools talk about ‘placing students at the center of their learning', but few really do. At Concept School, not only they have created innovative and inspiring curriculum vision, relevant pedagogical practices and the best professional development from the perspective of ‘student at the center’. They have intentionally designed physical spaces, parenting formation and the strategic path of the 'student as a single individual', deep in the center. Concept School is indeed, a lighthouse for all schools that try to innovate their ecosystems to become truly focused on the student.
Concept School is one of the few that truly understand the importance of self-reflexive conscious practices in developing happy, healthy, and successful children. They offer practices like yoga, mindfulness, dance, and storytelling, and that's what helps them to develop emotional intelligence as well as cognitive intelligence.
GEMS International School Educational Advisor
The goal of an educational orientation program is to support students in overcoming any social, emotional or academic barriers and to reach their full potential. This is the kind of program Concept School offers, which is why its students do not stop developing their potential.
Former director of the Singapore National Institute of Education
For an education system to be relevant, it must respond to the changes that is capable of promoting globally or locally. We want teachers to identify with their profession and to know their skills.This is how they will give the best of them. I believe this is Concept School’s key to success.
I've been a teacher for 39 years, and it was exciting to see a school with such bold and innovative design and mission. From the moment I walked in, it seemed like a place where kids have educational adventures. It is inspiring to have a place where they learn, face challenges and have fun at the same time. It's the best kind of learning in which students want to go to school because they are challenged and are enjoying everything at the same time.
Director of STEM, Ormisiton Junior College Auckland, New Zealand
I don’t think I have ever seen a school with such a strong focus on learning pedagogy, staff and knowledge support to bring its global classroom vision to life. In addition, I loved the physical spaces and the philosophy behind its design, as well as the use of technology by staff and students, and I hope to have the opportunity to visit it again to learn more from its members.
