Welcome to Lumiar Porto Alegre

The first Lumiar school in the southern region of Brazil was designed to receive and develop the Lumiar Model in its fullness. We have a modern space in Mont’Serrat neighborhood, where students, tutors, and masters enjoy the laboratory, outdoor area, library and collective hall for the realization of projects, learning modules, workshops and other activities that are part of our teaching model.


“We had to reinvent ourselves, to adapt ourselves to the challenge of such an innovative and challenging model!
Here we quickly see the results of the work. We identify students’ interest in learning, challenging projects, willingness to participate, discussions established from the reading of the world, the actual construction of the exercise of autonomy, and other incredible learning. Lumiar differs in all the details that make up education. Being part of this building encourages us to go beyond, to want to do more and better. The challenges are many and the desire for education to be truly the height of the 21st century is what drives us.”


Principal at Lumiar Porto Alegre

“Being a tutor in Lumiar is, first of all, to have the humility to recognize that, as educators or pedagogues, we are always under construction – alive and questioners of 21st-century education. We are restless and moved by a passion for education, we embrace a project that recognizes that truly human development means joining individual and collective autonomy, leading the student for citizen formation. I think that the tutor role is built with courage and the daily exercise of constantly questioning why you do what you do!”


Tutor of F1

“What we really like is the way things are taught. We really like the way they use to involve children:
learning with playing, with fun, inserting them in a context of reality, making them understand why they are learning that, putting things in the day-to-day learning process. So they can understand not only the matter itself, but understand the context of the matter within the context in which they live. I think this is Lumiar's differential.”


Mother of Luis F1

“In a traditional school, we are used to testing, testing and testing. Pass a test. Here, at Lumiar, no. Here is evaluation process. It's step by step. The evaluation is every day, every day. Here, too, everything is prepared for dialogue, for conversation. Here the student has a voice, is heard and is valued. And he knows he can express himself and has the autonomy to do so."

Lumiarpoly Project

Lumiarpoly is a board game created through a project that was developed by F1 students. The name was chosen by the learners and was based on the game Monopoly. At the board, the student’s neighborhoods, the tourist and historical spots of the city, and the transportation system gained life and allowed the study of the city, its geography, and its history. It was an interdisciplinary project, and the students developed their spatial orientation and laterality, they learned how to draw the wind rose, they learned about the history of the city, as well as a bit of the colonization of Brazil and Porto Alegre. Through the game, they developed writing skills, composing its manual and rules, as well as math skills, by developing the concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, so they would be able to calculate their change and profit. The students learned about their neighborhoods and how they are formed, what is the difference between avenues and streets, why houses have numbers, why the numbers are even or odd, why the streets have different names, and why sometimes those names come from important people. More than roll the dice and play on the board, they localized their own houses, that after being photographed, became part of the board, just as the routes commonly used on their routines.

How it works

On the board, the student quarters, the city's tourist and historical points, as well as the existing means of transport, came to life and allowed the study of the city, its history and geography.


Se constituindo como projeto interdisciplinar, os estudantes trabalharam habilidades de orientação espacial, lateralidade, aprenderam a desenhar rosa dos ventos, conheceram a história da cidade, um pouco da colonização do Brasil e de Porto Alegre.


Through the game, they developed writing skills, writing their manual and rules, as well as math skills, developing ideas of addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, in order to calculate change and profit.


They learned about neighborhoods and how they are formed, what is the difference between avenue and street, because houses are divided into numbers, because these numbers are even and odd, because streets have different names and often names of important people.

Learning and reality

More than throwing the dice and walking with the pawn, they located their own squares, which, when photographed, were part of the board, as well as the paths taken from one point to another in the city in their routines and experiences.

The Walking Fish Project

To build an aquarium to observe fish and other organisms, to understand how living beings live inside the water and to learn how to maintain a small ecosystem were the objectives proposed for the project Aquarium: The Walking Fish. Through the project, the group researched, planned, prototyped, and executed the construction of an aquarium. From math to natural sciences and ecology, while also exploring ethical and care themes, reading, writing, and a lot of hands-on work. All these activities enabled the students to answer some of their questions, like how to build an aquarium, if fish can drown, how do fish pee and what is the ideal temperature and pH of the water. Through the observation of this artificial ecosystem, the students had the opportunity to build, model or rebuild their knowledge related to the environment in a positive manner, with a high dose of responsibility and concern over the maintenance of the aquarium and the lives that inhabit it.

How it works

Through this Project, the F2M group researched, planned, prototyped and executed the construction of an aquarium in the classroom.


From mathematical language to natural sciences/ecology, going through discussions about ethics and care, reading, writing and a lot of hands-on work, the group of students from Group F2 sought answers to their doubts and questions: how to make an aquarium? Fish drowns? Does fish pee? What is the ideal temperature? What is pH?

Learning and reality

From the observation of this artificial ecosystem, the students had the opportunity to build, model or reconstruct their knowledge about the environment in a more positive way and with a good deal of responsibility and concern for the maintenance of the aquarium and the lives that developed there .

Spatial Mission Project

Investigar quais são os efeitos das condições espaciais sobre o corpo humano; entender de que maneira a pesquisa científica e a engenharia espacial simulam as condições necessárias à vida humana fora da Terra: estas foram as curiosidades centrais que serviram de motor propulsor para os estudantes do F3 vivenciarem suas descobertas a respeito do espaço.

How it works

With the construction and launching of a rocket to discuss astrobiology, astronomical distances and reflections on life, issues related to the evolution of the species and the study of its physiological aspects, it was possible to embark on a project where students had the opportunity to create, with based on all his discoveries, a science fiction book about the possibility of life off-planet! Art, cinema, creativity, reading, writing and a lot of science giving meaning to the constructed learning!
