Message from the Principal

Welcome to Oeiras International School, a unique and very special place unlike any other school. Situated on the edge of Lisbon, we enjoy easy access to one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals’, with a rich history and vibrant culture. Our school is nestled in a green valley, with a stream flowing through the middle of our campus. Our goats, pony and donkey roam freely. Wooded hillsides roll down to meet the Palace, the listed building that is the 16th Century heart of OIS. Among the many architectural treasures of our campus is The Chapel, with its original marble inlays and ceramics making it officially a National Monument. However, despite the glorious history, OIS is a 21st Century school. We are committed to the academic achievement of all of our students. Of course we are proud of our graduates who attend some of the world’s leading universities, but we are equally proud of those who work hard and achieve their very best, at whatever level. As an IB school we value holistic growth and character development, imagination and resilience, teamwork and service to others. We know that a real education extends beyond classrooms and grades  and prepares us with the skills to lead a happy, successful and positive life.

At OIS you can feel the difference, and to appreciate just how special we are you must see us. Please contact the Admissions team and arrange your visit today.
