Retooling School

Andrea Buffara, Chief Operations Officer of Gamut Education, recently published her thoughts on school start-ups, creating a long distance working partnership and the non-negotiables of student well being. Ms. Buffara mentions the essential importance of working holistically with young children and caring for the cognitive, social emotional as well as nutritional needs. This is especially necessary as young children are spending more and more time in school settings. Buffara also talks about being a digital migrant, but  demonstrates her ability to navigate electronic tools to manage from a distance a business as well as providing accountability for quality operations Gamut Education works with school start-ups and investors interested in the education services business sector.

Grupo Buaiz invests in Education and plans the expansion of the Escola Americana de Vitória

SITE – FOLHA VITÓRIA – 18 DE SETEMBRO DE 2018

Grupo Buaiz investe em Educação e planeja expansão da Escola Americana de Vitória

O Grupo Buaiz, empresa com 77 anos de mercado, que atua nos segmentos de alimentos (Buaiz Alimentos), Imobiliário (Shopping Vitória e Nova Cidade Empreendimentos) e Comunicações (Rede Vitória) definiu sua participação na Escola Americana de Vitória (EAV). O Grupo identificou no modelo inovador de ensino de imersão em inglês e estímulo ao potencial de desenvolvimento pessoal de cada aluno, um caminho para o futuro da Educação e espera com isso contribuir para o crescimento do nível do ensino no Estado. Com os investimentos, a partir do início do ano letivo de 2019, a escola, que este ano opera com a Pré-Escola, terá também a 1ª e 2ª séries do Ensino Fundamental. A entrada do Grupo Buaiz irá impulsionar um crescimento de 150% da EAV em relação à quantidade de alunos.

Grupo Buaiz torna-se investidor
“Confiamos plenamente na metodologia da escola e na sua Direção Pedagógica e, portanto, não vamos participar da Gestão. Vamos participar do Investimento na estrutura e na expertise deste negócio porque percebemos, através de nossos filhos e netos, que não tínhamos esse tipo de ensino no Espírito Santo, sendo necessário buscá-lo em outros estados e países para obter este nível de formação. Isso não será mais necessário. Sendo assim, o Grupo Buaiz, dentro da sua Filosofia, estará contribuindo para o crescimento de um setor importantíssimo para o Espírito Santo, desta vez na área de Educação”, esclarece Américo Buaiz Filho, presidente do Grupo Buaiz.

Escola com potencial inovador e metodologia avançada
Atualmente, a escola comporta a pré-escola e, a partir do início do ano letivo de 2019, terá também a 1ª e 2ª séries do Ensino Fundamental, passando a receber crianças dos três aos sete anos de idade. Desta forma, a sociedade com o Grupo Buaiz irá impulsionar um crescimento de 150% da EAV em relação à quantidade de alunos já no ano que vem. Em 2020, a escola já terá o Ensino Fundamental 1 completo, com crescimento nos anos seguintes até o High School, chegando ao nível das escolas americanas do Rio Janeiro e São Paulo e as dos Estados Unidos.
