About Braga International School
Braga International School is a mixed, non-selective, non-denominational independent all-through school with sixth form in Braga, Portugal, serving students from the age of 3-18.
Braga International School was founded in 1999 and teaches pupils the English National Curriculum up until the age of 13, followed by the Cambridge IGCSE exams and later the AICE Diploma (AS and A levels). The curriculum is altered to suit an international community. English is the primary language taught in class, but the school hopes that students leave with a high level of Portuguese. Facilities include outside sports grounds, Design Technology rooms, play areas and an indoor gym.
Values and vision
Braga International School wants to offer all pupils an outstanding learning programme in an open, friendly and international community. The school works to ensure that all students fulfil their own academic and personal potential throughout their time in education and works to mature their capabilities. It is important to the school that all pupils leave with the knowledge, understanding and discipline to contribute positively to society. Students are invited to take part in extra-curricular activities and clubs to expand their skills outside the classroom, gain in confidence and discover new interests. These include art, sports, music and drama classes. The school teaches children the importance of understanding and accepting other cultures and beliefs and doesn’t tolerate discrimination on any level. Student's individual talents and skills are nurtured by dedicated teaching staff, while parents are encouraged to take an active role in their children’s education so that they receive the support and guidance both at school and during their home life.
