Rua General Urquiza 223, Leblon (1940)
Following its 1937 birth in an Old House in
Ipanema (link to Official EA - use "back" button), the school moved in 1940
to the above location in Leblon,
a suburb of Rio
Maps). The Escola Americana (EA)
became another jewel of the Cidade Maravilhosa, a
city already famous for its beautiful geographical setting, Carnaval , the Samba, and Macumba. This is how EA still
appeared in 1965.
Rua General Urquiza 223, Leblon (1962)
The Escola Americana today is nestled in a Lush Green Jungle in
the suburb of Gávea. The modern architecture, pool and Tropical Grounds give EA the appearance
of a country club. You are the only thing missing. Cadê você, heim?
