The main objective of this article is to develop a typology of Brazilian schools using a broad set of information, such as school size, infrastructure, quality of educational offer, and many others. The typology is based on the establishment of extreme profiles of schools, clustering them by similar characteristics. School efficiency was also investigated, in order to observe its distribution according to the extreme profiles. The typology of the schools indicated three extreme profiles. The first profile is of schools with inadequate infrastructure and poor efficiency indicators, the second refers to large schools with high infrastructural level and good efficiency indicators. The third profile is at an intermediate range between the first and second. One cause for concern is that most Brazilian schools are classified in the category of having precarious infrastructures, which are worse in some regions than in others.
