Pedagogical Intent

An Active Learning

We are prepared to think of the student as a being in constant development who needs to be prepared for the challenges of an ever-changing world without forgetting the values and principles that must remain unchanged. We believe all students have a sparkle of their own, a voice that should be heard.

Every day we encourage our students to question, discover and try to surpass themselves, supporting and guiding them to become better people, professionals and leaders.

The trust shown by generations of parents and guardians in our educational project has guided our constant innovation and modernisation.

Teaching and learning in the digital age

We train our students to integrate into a world of new technologies, favouring different forms of knowledge, communication and expression, opening new horizons through bilingual education and preparing our students for an increasingly demanding, competitive and global world.

intencao pedagogica

An open mind, a world without borders

Our primary goal is to provide our students with a complete education that strengthens their identity as citizens of the world, encouraging them to be flexible to the perspectives and traditions of other individuals and communities whilst understanding and appreciating their culture, personal history and identity. We believe that the world should be seen with an open mind, without borders or limits, and that everything should be seen globally.
