ALUMNI TESTIMONIALS

Aiko Uehara

Class of 2020

"When I heard that I was going to move to Brazil, I was worried about not having Asians or many girls in my new class. However, all of the worry and nervousness disappeared because I felt like I was “at home.” I love this school very much even though I just spent a year at EAR. Thank you, mom and dad, for bringing me here. It was such an impressive, fabulous time spending with powerful, excellent friends. Thank you very much for being my friends."

Arthur Lemos

Class of 2020

“One of the many moments in my 16 years that I will always remember is how I found my place here. I remember that I didn’t have any self-esteem when I was little, but after a single good volleyball game almost everyone in my class gave me a nickname, “Myth.” That completely changed my view of myself and helped me to believe in myself. I hope that EAR never changes and we have more classes as a family like mine was and that my classmates become successful with whatever path they choose.”

Benny Lispector

Class of 2020

"Every time I look back at my journey to become the person I am now, I realize that arriving at this school becomes a pivotal moment. It couldn’t be elsewhere other than at E.A.R that I’d be able to learn what I learned here. And let it be clear that learning is a concept that far transcends the mere act of opening an English book or doing math homework. Surely I am prepared and looking forward for the next adventures that are about to cross my way."

Beatriz Oliveira

Class of 2020

"At EAR, I made new friends and met wonderful teachers and directors who guided me in my growth as a student and as a person. Here, I had the chance to improve my English, acquire the necessary development to attend a university in the States, and develop skills and values ​​that will guide me through life and my future career."

Bernardo Pinto

Class of 2020

"Today I am glad to say that the American School of Recife was responsible for building my character, my passion, and my resiliency. EAR has provided me the opportunity to grow as much as I could in those 5 years. This school has changed my life in a way nothing else has. EAR taught me how to see life as a dream, and how to work to make that dream a reality."

Class of 2020

“Since I arrived at EAR in the 4th grade, it has proven to be different from any other school. Here, people regard each other as a family and teachers don’t just teach; they care about us. After all my school life, there are teachers that I need to thank and also my classmates, especially the ones that became my best friends. I would like to thank you for all the moments that made me feel closer to my EAR family.”

Eduardo Colaço

Class of 2020

“There aren’t enough words that could describe what this school means to me. My second home, where I spent most of my hours both physically and mentally. At EAR I laughed and cried, I failed, failed again, and then failed better. I learned that in life we must fight for what we want because opportunities are not going to knock on our doors unless we make them.”

Emília Siqueira

Class of 2020

“Studying here means so much to me: making new friendships every year from all around the globe, being able to learn a lot academically, and speaking each day with my best friends was an incredible experience! EAR’s core values are truly what I lived and will take forever with me as a human being. Integrity, learning, and community are what that built us eagles throughout our experiences at EAR. Skeptics will say that we only have one path, but being an Eagle means to aspire to anything we desire. “

Inês Maria

Class of 2020

“This school showed me that there is more than one path and that I am never alone. No matter what situation I was in, and how bad it was, I could always turn it around. This school has opened doors for me towards my future, and I cannot thank it enough from that. Now the only thing left for me to do is to step out and face what EAR has prepared me to do.”

João Colaço

Class of 2020

“EAR is the best school in Recife and the right one for me; the school gave me amazing experiences that prepare me not only for taking tests but for the future. The friends I made in school will be with me for the rest of my life: the moments we had together, the times we played soccer during lunch, or the rivalries that grew during Red & Blue. And also our teachers have made a lot of difference in my life; they’ve helped me to realize that life goes on even when it gets rough. I love every detail of what I’ve lived.”

João Lucas Lamenha

Class of 2020

“EAR has always challenged me in every way possible, from Calculus to Music, Brazilian History to Biology. The school always encouraged me to be my best self and brought out the best in me, even when times were not the best. EAR opened, literally, a world of opportunities for me. Even as I move on to my college and professional careers, EAR will always be the place that opened this world for me; the setting of my memories, the enabler of my dreams.”

"I want to congratulate every teacher I’ve had because my success would not have been possible without you guys, and my success is also your success. You taught me the value of studying because after all, “Knowledge is power.” I’m excited to see what the future holds for us, and hope we will maintain this family because that’s what we are: family."

Lorena Castellanos

Class of 2020

"Studying at EAR has been an unprecedented and challenging experience, as EAR is very different from the schools where I studied before. In my opinion, this is the main goal of a school, to be an environment where students can simply express, interact, question, and develop critical thinking. At EAR I had to face new challenges, adapt to new routines, and deal with feelings that I hadn’t felt before. I think all these experiences helped to shape my character and prepare me for the future."

Class of 2020

“Some of my best memories have come from the American School of Recife. What this school represents to me is more than just a feeling. This school taught me that work is good and inevitable. I am so glad for the teachers I’ve had in this excellent school. I’ve created so many friends here that I know will be with me when I need them, and I’m certain I will help them when they need me. It’s now time for a greater challenge, college.”

Lucas Pires

Class of 2020

“When I first came to E.A.R. in the 9th grade, I had few expectations. I was used to big schools with over 120 people per grade. And, honestly, on my third day here, I had already forgotten I was a new kid. Since then, we’ve been a family, failing together, learning together, and overcoming obstacles together. We’ve built ourselves up to our greatest versions. The school taught us how to become not only better students but better people. We’ve gained a new understanding of History and Math and learned international relations and what builds a society, among so many other things.”

Lucas Santos

Class of 2020

“Praise the Lord, for my years in high school are finally ending. For starters, now that I’m free of the chains of school, for me, this is the moment life will truly begin. Yikes! I will never forget the little good things though. Now, I’m free to dedicate my time to pursue a career in music and entertainment. Please wish me the best. I wish the best to all of you no matter what. Okay? Bye!”

Luiz Doria Filho

Class of 2020

"When I first came to E.A.R., I had very few expectations other than: “this school will improve my English and prepare me for college life in the United States”. However, the school helped me realize that I need to, at every moment, improve every single thing I do in order to become the best version of myself and to become the person I need to be. My head will always be filled with many irreplaceable memories of my time at E.A.R. To the institution I say: You’ve done your job."

Maria Cecilia Fontes

Class of 2020

"A E.A.R changed my life forever. I grew so much in this school, in every way possible. I am leaving here with the feeling of being prepared to face real life and pursue what I love with robust ideas. Thanks to my parents for giving me this fantastic opportunity, and thanks to the teachers who taught me everything I know and helped me every time I needed it. Without each one of them, my mind wouldn’t be as open and creative. I will definitely miss every bit of E.A.R."

Rodrigo Pires

Class of 2020

“EAR has given me countless friendships, from students to teachers and the maintenance staff. This school has offered me a variety of opportunities to grow as a person and as a student. Experiences from events such as ISSLs, MUN and GIN conferences, and SGA meetings to our worker’s NHS English classes have made high school a sweeter experience. Through my experience, I can surely say the school has fulfilled its mission statement of developing critical thinkers and lifelong learners. While feeling fulfilled in completing high school, a part of me is sad that I’ll have to leave this community behind. Today I’m proud to say I’m a member of the Class of 2020 of the American School of Recife.”

Yuri Azevedo

Class of 2020

“I studied at EAR for over 14 years. I have grown up in this school. Ever since the time I took my first step in this school, I have never stopped learning. Not only did I learn English and Math, but more importantly I learned how to be honorable, respectable, and resilient. The friends I’ve made in all these years are so many and so great. We laughed together, we played together, but we also struggled together, and yet we persisted and persevered together. Now, it is time for each one of us to follow his or her path. That’s all folks! We made it! We are the Class of 2020!”
