St. Dominic’s International School (SDIS) is a highly respected and well known international school, and is the only school in Portugal authorised to offer all three programmes of the International Baccalaureate Organisation: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme (DP). These three programmes provide us with a coherent and internationally validated curriculum, which combines academic rigour with elements of community service, critical thinking and appreciation of the arts.
Our commitment to the IB and the delivery of a relevant and progressive educational programme has been at the core of our work for many years. We recognise the unique skills and knowledge required for a complex, rapidly changing world by providing for an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to learning. Educating the whole child is fundamental to our approach and our students develop into self-confident, well rounded individuals, ready to take their place in, and make their mark on the World.
