A very warm welcome to St. Dominic’s International School in Lisbon.
St Dominic’s has long played an important part in education in Portugal, being one of the first schools, globally, to introduce a programme from the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) . It remains the only three programme IB school in the country, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP) to close to six hundred students from around the world.
While we recognise the importance of academic achievement, we believe that education is more than academic results and so, as an inclusive school, we identify, encourage and nurture students in whatever field their interests and talents may lie. Hence we have a strong emphasis on the arts, capitalising on the varied artistic traditions of our international community, on sport and on community service.
A school website is but a ‘teaser', so I hope that you will take the time to peruse these pages and then recognise that you want to take our pulse through visiting us. I believe that you will come away convinced that we will prepare your children to be responsible, compassionate, life long learners for this rapidly changing world.
Our door is open – just let us know.
