Apple Distinguished Schools around the world

Apple Distinguished School

Avenues’ campuses in New York, São Paulo and Shenzhen have been recognized as Apple Distinguished Schools. The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for programs that meet the criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, as well as demonstrating a clear vision of exemplary learning environments.

World-Class Infrastructure

At Avenues, technology not only enhances teaching and learning in the classroom. It also plays an important role behind the scenes. Our modern cloud infrastructure, online collaboration tools, and professional IT management systems enable us to provide a state-of-the-art digital learning environment. In this way, our students can explore the digital space safely from early on, becoming tech-savvy digital citizens along the way.

Global, Cross-Campus Collaboration

Our local technology teams collaborate globally to bring our concept of 'one school, many campuses' to life. Through growing communication channels and an expanding roster of collaborative projects, Avenues students have frequent opportunities to connect with and learn from their peers around the world.

Meet the Specialists

The tech integrators at Avenues are a team of educators specialized in integrating technology into the classroom. The tech integrators coach and collaborate with faculty to understand learning objectives. They then identify opportunities for the thoughtful and transformative application of our digital tools to enhance the student experience and encourage learning beyond the campus walls. Similarly, the library and media specialists work closely with faculty and students, helping them select resources to take interdisciplinary and inquiry-based learning to the next level.

Our designation as an Apple Distinguished School recognizes the amazing work that our teachers have done to skill themselves up to use technology effectively, and our commitment to using technology in meaningful and powerful ways with our students.

Stories From Our Campuses

New York

Opportunities have included engaging with guest speakers—from elected officials to published authors, local tenant association leaders to historians—on important issues; building relationships with Spanish and Mandarin-speaking communities in the city; and partnering with local students to compete in robotics competitions.

São Paulo

Student-led community engagement initiatives have focused on sustainability, literacy and access to education. These have ranged from the Pracinha Initiative, which saw students develop and implement a plan to regenerate a nearby public park, to Festa Junina, a traditional Brazilian celebration held on campus.


In Shenzhen, our first grade students visited a local ethnic minority school, where they played and took classes with their peers, and donated resource packages of books and stationery. Eighth grade students developed an exhibition called “Unseen” to raise awareness of the reasons for and costs of social marginalization.
