Education Levels

Due to the high concentration of expats in Lisbon, Porto, and the Algarve, these cities and their surrounding areas are home to some of the finest international schools in the country. Here you can learn about some of the top international schools in Portugal, including those run by the US, British, French, and German governments, and how much they'll cost you.

The admissions requirements for most institutions can be found on the schools' websites, so familiarizing yourself with your top choices is a smart idea. As part of the application process, the majority of institutions have the incoming student meet with the school's director or other members of the faculty and staff for an interview.
A child's education in an international school will cost a significant amount of money. The average monthly cost is 800 Euros and prices in Portugal range from a low of 400 Euros to a high of 2000 Euros per month. In general, tuition increases with grade level, even within the same institution.
