Founded in 1960, the Pan American School of Bahia (PASB) is cooperatively owned by parents and operates as a non-profit, non-denominational, college-preparatory institution for American, International and Brazilian students. The academic program includes Early Childhood Education (ECE) for children between 2 and 4 years old, an elementary school (kindergarten-5), a middle school (6-8) and a four-year high school (9-12). With a low student-teacher ratio, the School can provide the individual attention necessary for students’ personal development and academic achievement. At all levels, students are encouraged to use their own initiative and are taught the value of research, inquiry, and discovery. Emphasis is on the development of English language skills and all classroom instruction is in English.

The School's teaching staff comprises both North America and Brazilian educators, experienced in pedagogical and methodological practices to complement a fully integrated American and Brazilian curriculum. PASB teachers are dedicated to helping children discover the best in themselves. They are concerned about what a child learns as well as how a child learns. The School’s 20,000 square meter campus is a tropical garden complete with lush vegetation and colorful birds.

The middle/high school building contains 15 air-conditioned classrooms, 2 science labs, a library/media center and a centralized computer lab. The elementary complex contains 18 spacious, air-conditioned classrooms, an art center, and a centralized computer lab. Athletic facilities include a covered gymnasium, 2 soccer fields, an outdoor basketball court, a semi-olympic swimming pool, and several playground areas. The School’s canteen provides snacks and nutritional lunches daily.
