St Peter’s International School is a day and boarding school, that offers both Portuguese and International curriculum, including the IGCSE and the IB Diploma Programme. As the first international boarding school in the area, we offer a home away from home just 30 minutes from Lisbon. Our new on-site boarding house is an extension of St. Peter’s commitment to excellence.

For nearly three decades, St. Peter’s International School has been providing the very best in Local and International Education. The brand-new boarding residence now offers more families the opportunity to access proven academic excellence just 30 mins. from Lisbon, near the sea and the mountains. I am extremely proud to be part of this community and invite you to learn more about our school.
