Parent's Review of VVIS in Lagos, Portugal

Submitted by SloJan

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

VVIS

In what town or city is this school located?

Lagos

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

British...though they say it is International

What grade levels are represented at this school?

k-12

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Dropped off by the parents or the small school bus

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Marginal. The football pitch is excellent and they are in the midst of building more classrooms, but the present classrooms are small (for the primary school at least). They do have a few afterschool clubs available, including football, basketball and music.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

No programs for repatriation but as 99% of the school is English, it doesn't seem necessary. This school is not an international school.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

There is a PTO but I haven't seen much information from them. The school organized a bbq which was quite nice.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

If you are not British, make sure that your child can handle the stereotypes that are heaped on them by both adults and children.
