WHY WORK AT AVENUES?

Think of Avenues as one independent school with campuses that are interdependent and intentionally connected.

Avenues New York opened in 2012 and currently serves 1,650 students in grades Nursery – 12. Our second campus, in São Paulo, opened in August 2018, and Avenues Shenzhen opened in 2019. Avenues prepares students for engaged global citizenship in the modern world, with an approach that combines language immersion, interdisciplinary teaching, a global curriculum, and a culture of creativity and deep collaboration.
