About Colégio Santiago Internacional (CSi)


At Colégio Santiago Internacional (CSi), teaching and learning is our main focus. Through differentiated, enjoyable and engaging learning experiences, we bring together students ages 4 to 18 in a personal, intellectually challenging, dynamic and supportive environment where multiple perspectives and cultures are respected and celebrated.

We believe in educating the whole child. As well as academic progress, your child will develop into a responsible global citizen, guided by our school's principles of honesty, integrity and respect for others. Pupils are encouraged to play a part in their own development. They are challenged and given the opportunity to discover their own abilities.

Our classroom teachers are UK and Portugal qualified, with up-to-date training so that teaching standards are always high. Lessons are differentiated according to each child ability, a bilingual approach is also used so that pupils communicate from an early age in English and Portuguese and also understand and learn about both cultures.

All of this guarantees that every child in our care receives the best possible education. CSi team works hard to create an environment where children enjoy learning and feel safe and confident to participate. We believe that children should have fun while they are at school and that mistakes are a natural step in the education process and create new learning opportunities.

We encourage you to come and visit our school to sense the unique atmosphere of CSi.

I have visited this school to put my children this academic year. Everyone was so welcome, it felt we were already part of the family. Did not think twice, Tavira is our first option.

What a positive and rounded schooling experience. Our son spent 5 years at this school and had a wonderful and character building year every year. Even during the pandemic the school was way ahead of others as regards the online classes and remote support with technology. The teaching staff and principal were always easy to communicate with and speak with. The school seemed to get the right balance between a decent academic approach and giving kids a rounded education with Music, Sport and Psychology for example. It’s a smaller school than some of the bigger and colder ones in the algarve for sure. In our experience it was a much more pleasant and welcoming academic and social environment for our sons needs. The best way to make up your mind picking a school in the algarve is to go and meet the people. Ms Alves, her staff, the beautiful buildings and the town of Tavira are incredible and you should give CSI a visit to include on the short list of your algarve school choice.

Colegio Santiago Internacional is a small school that has a very close and friendly community. Very small size classes and where differentiation and inclusion are the main teaching strategy.

Some strangely negative reviews here. All I can say is my two children love the school! They started in September and despite COVID challenges have settled in really well. The location is great and the school is in a beautiful old building. Teachers are friendly and conscientious. Just hope that one day they can enjoy the school properly and safely without masks
