Parent's Review of International Christian School of Cascais in Cascais, Portugal

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

International Christian School of Cascais

In what town or city is this school located?

Cascais

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

American

What grade levels are represented at this school?

K4-12

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

parents, bus

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

This is a small school with very loving, caring teachers. It is a "family" atmosphere. The focus is more on academics rather than sports.

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?

My two daughters were tested and placed into the appropriate grades. They will be learning Portuguese for the first time (we just relocated here). I was glad to hear that Portuguese is taught in all grades.

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

There are a few school events throughout the year, as well as parent-teacher conferences.

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

Go and visit; it might not be for you if you are against your child learning the Bible. We are Christians, so we like that. There are many other non-christian families though that appreciate the good morals that are encouraged here.
