It is Vale Verde International School (VVIS)'s aim to prepare young people in the Western Algarve to take their full place in society. This will involve their developing academic, social, physical and interpersonal skills as well as a sense of personal responsibility for themselves and those with whom they interact, the ability to discern right from wrong, true from false, valuable from worthless, beneficial from malign, selflessness from selfishness, the transcendental from the mundane, the essential from the dispensable, excellence from mediocrity and the strength of character to act upon these value judgements.
It is our aim to celebrate the joy of learning leading our community into life-long learning, contributing positively to the commonwealth and the society, stretching from the family unit to the world, of which we form a part.
It is among our aims to help students acquire a reasoned set of moral values and an awareness and tolerance of the values of other cultures.
It is among our aims to create a happy and stimulating learning environment for all members of the school community.
It is among our aims to encourage all students in their endeavours to realise their fullest potential – academically, socially, practically and physically. It is among our aims to develop aesthetic awareness and creative ability.
My experience at Vale Verde over the last three and a half years is something I’ll never forget. Moving schools was something I dreaded, however I was welcomed by a school of kind and friendly teachers and staff. The teaching is phenomenal; I loved absolutely every lesson. The students are all so friendly, I was able to make friends very easily, which made my experience at school even better. I can’t thank Louise and all of the teachers enough for giving me such a life-changing experience at Vale Verde. I’ve just finished my education there and I can safely say that it’s something I will never forget.
Amazing school, dedicated teachers who have inspired Dylan to reach his full potential. Would recommend the school to anyone looking for a quality UK education outside Britain. Many thanks to the whole VVIS team.
A great little school. Both our son and daughter spent over 10 years at VVIS, from primary to IGCSE/A level and we felt that the quality of care and teaching was very good. They also offer a great range of subjects, have really nice facilities and the school is set in a lovely location.
We were especially impressed how management handled the Covid Lockdown. Within days of all Portuguese schools being forced to close, they set up an online teaching program that was just brilliant (especially compared to what we heard from relatives in the UK/Belgium about the schools there!).
Overall a great experience at VVIS
