SDIS is a highly respected and well known international school, and is the only school in Portugal authorised to offer all three of the International Baccalaureate Programmes, Primary (PYP), Middle (MYP), and the Diploma. Our commitment to the IB and its programmes has been at the core of SDIS’ educational philosophy.
The school is a private, non-selective, co-educational day school serving students aged 3 to 18 years in the international community, through the medium of English. We currently have 49 different nationalities amongst our student population, making us a truly international school.
The school is housed in two one-storey buildings. It has a self-contained Nursery/Kindergarten which has recently been expanded to provide 2 new classrooms for Kindergarten children. The Junior School offers: English, Portuguese, Mathematics, Social Studies, Information Technology, Art, Music, PE and Social Education through the curriculum of the IB Primary Years Programme in Nursery, Kindergarten and Years 1 to 6. The total number of students for 2010/11 in Junior School is 320.
In the Senior School we have 337 students of whom 253 are studying the IB Middle Years Programme, with full certification, in Years 7 to 11. In Years 12 and 13 we have 84 students preparing for the IB Diploma. The IB Diploma programme grants direct entry to the most prestigious tertiary institutions in the world due to its intellectual rigour and high academic standards.

Both our MYP and Diploma results were well above worldwide averages. In the Diploma our average pass score was 33 with 6 students achieving 40 or more points.
