About Carlucci American International School of Lisbon (CAISL)
Carlucci American International School of Lisbon takes seriously the responsibility to ensure that each student is welcomed and valued, and, at the same time, challenged with an academically demanding curriculum. We strive to help students feel accepted and to accept themselves and each other.
We do not want students to get intellectually "comfortable." Academic achievement is not accomplished by those who are comfortable. It is accomplished by those who are always striving and questioning and demanding the best, both of themselves and of those around them. This is the atmosphere we work to create.
Supporting its mission, Carlucci American International School will educate school-aged dependents of the national and international communities residing in the Lisbon area. The multi-cultural, multilingual make-up of the CAISL student body is an asset and a resource for enriching the lives of all students.
Our daughter started attending CAISL in September 2018, so we have some experience with the school. It has impressed us beyond words; the teachers are at the top of their profession, the administrative staff responsive and professional, and the student body diverse and exuding the sort of positive energy that comes from learning day-to-day in such an environment. In our child’s development since joining the school, there is clear evidence of the “hidden curriculum” at work, as her sense of responsibility, consideration and mindfulness evolve over time. For parents, too, there’s a real sense of community, of being connected. So, in a nutshell, we’re very pleased with CAISL!
My family and I are brazillian and moved from USA to Portugal in 2018.
For us, it was a blessing to find a school like CAISL!
The school is an extension of US schools' method, all the staff is very professional and well prepared, and also the school curriculum is an excellent level. The intercultural exchange is very rich because my children study with children from all over the world, which makes it a priceless experience. For sure, I can notice the dignity, respect and integrity that the school transmits to its students.
