Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We are highly committed to guiding and inspiring students to be successful and happy in their adult lives.
PaRK IS is an international school with strong Portuguese roots. We have an innovative and rigorous programme, with a strong focus on Maths for the Senior School. Each student is unique and we work every day to sparkle in them the curiosity, creativity and love for learning needed for them to be happy and successful lifelong learners. Our curriculum prepares our students think glocally in this ever-changing world. Technology, sports and performing arts are an important part of the curriculum. We are now part of the Inspired Education Group which give us support and open new possibilities for our students - they are part of a big and global family with more than 33,000 students world-wide.

Teaching approach of the school

We want to educate happy and successful adults, so we need our students to be confident, to have strong knowledge and acquire a set of skills (they need to know how to think for themselves, be critic and know how to solve any kind of problem!) and to be glocal (to think globally and locally). To achieve this we have a diverse curriculum: bilingual (PT/EN) until Grade 4; Key Stages from Grade 5 to 8; IGCSE for Grades 9-10 and IB for Grades 11-12.
