St. Paul's School is a bilingual international school in São Paulo, Brazil. The school's curriculum consists of three main courses: the Brazilian Core Curriculum, the British National Core Curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. These are supported by a wide variety of artistic, cultural and sporting extra-curricular activities, field courses and pastoral care. The school was formally established in 1926, when it was known as the Escola Britânica S.A. and accommodated 60 students, with boarding facilities for male students. St. Paul's School is a busy and hardworking place for pupils aged 3 to 18. Standards are high, as are expectations, and these are maintained by regular visits by inspectors from renowned educational accreditation organisations such as HMC (Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference), IAPS (Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools), LAHC (Latin American Heads' Conference) and MEC (Ministério da Educação) representatives.
St. Paul's School was the first Latin American School to be recognised by the UK government as a British Overseas School, when it was first inspected in 2012. In 2006 its high standard was recognised by the British Guardian newspaper, which listed it as one of the best UK-curriculum international schools in the world. The school has a high rate of students receiving Ivy League and Oxbridge offers every year. According to its 2015 BSO inspection report, "The attainment levels achieved by pupils across the school are excellent: final examination results are outstanding.”  In its 2019 BSO inspection, the school was judged as excellent in all areas (for both pupils' achievement and pupils' personal development). The school's recent inspection reports can be found on its website 
Pupils who study at St. Paul's are referred to as "Pauleans", and often go on to study at top further education institutions, in Brazil, the UK, the US and further afield.
The school is located in a "large, bright and well kept campus set in the leafy suburb of a wealthy residential area".
The foundation is an institution devoted to the study, research and propagation of the language, literature, sciences and arts of Brazil and of the United Kingdom in Brazil under the terms of the diplomatic agreement between the Brazilian and British Governments in 1975 and ratified by the Federal Decree 83.283 of 13 March 1979.
In the 1960s and 1970s, St. Paul's became a co-educational day school for pupils aged 4–16. In the following decade, in response to a demand for preparation for university entrance in Brazil and overseas, the school registered with São Paulo education authorities as the Escola Britanica de São Paulo and introduced the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Sixth Formers first received their Segundo Grau certificate in 1983 and the first IB Diplomas were awarded in 1987.
St. Paul's School is home to the St. Paul's Lions. They divide into both Varsity (ages 15 up) and Junior Varsity teams, in a range of sports, such as football, futsal, basketball and volleyball. They compete in the SPHSL (São Paulo High School League) which comprises five schools: Saint Paul's, Associação Escola Graduada de São Paulo (Graded), Escola Maria Imaculada (Chapel School), EAC Campinas (American School of Campinas) and the Pan American Christian Academy.
The school also holds yearly sporting events, such as the biathlon and sports festival. Students are encouraged to partake in these activities and are awarded house points for winning. The most successful House is awarded a grand prize at the end of every academic year.
