Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Aprendizes is an inclusive active learning school in Cascais, Portugal.
To be a safe space in which students experience teaching excellence on a daily basis. An approach that encourages individuality, and helps them to develop to their full potential.
We seek to develop balanced human beings to transform society in a collaborative way. We believe that in this way we can contribute to a better world, a society of conscious, responsible, respectful and free individuals.

Teaching approach of the school

Ous aprroach is an active learning one, meaning that we are a not a curriculum based scholl. We develop the student as a totalitty.
Aprendizes offers the Portuguese curriculum till 8th grade with a bilingual approach, meaning classes like PE, yoga, music and Arts are in English, and from 5th grade Aprendizes introduces Global Perspectives, also in English. At the end of 8th grade students can choose to finish the 9th grade in the Portuguese curriculum (the ones that make this choice have to leave Aprendizes after completing the 9th grade) or move to the Cambridge Secondary following the IGCSE and A level curriculum.
