Develop a high degree of proficiency in both Portuguese and English. Provide preparation for and to equip pupils with the skills needed to function in the complex society of the 21st Century.


  • Support the development of the mother tongue.
  • Involve parents and the community in the everyday life of the school.
  • Develop social, emotional, intellectual, academic and physical pupils' potential to the fullest in all areas.
  • Promote independence, autonomy, self-discipline and an understanding of the needs of others.
  • Ensure that balanced curricular opportunity is genuinely available to all students and is positively encouraged.
  • Blend tradition with modernity to reap the harvest of both past and present.
  • Combine elements of all cultures and values to learn the best of these cultures.
  • Promote internationalism.
  • Practice inquiry based teaching grounded on a concept-based curriculum that is regularly evaluated by teaching professionals to improve the quality and effectiveness of the PYP, MYP and Diploma programme.
