Is there an overall consensus regarding schools for children ages 6-14 as to them fitting in well? Would they benefit from attending Portuguese public schools versus a private, English based educational environment? What about the language? Are they offered tutoring in the public school scheme for their ability to learn the local language?Many thanks.
We are looking to move to Lisbon this summer from Barcelona and I am trying to find recommendations on good places to live and also schools for my 3,5 year old daughter. Preferably we would like something fairly central as my partner will be working in central Lisbon and so doesn't want to travel too much each day. I am happy to travel a little from the centre for the right school, however. Can anyone recommend somewhere with a slightly more holistic, nurturing attitude to education as opposed to strict academic focus? Finally, are there any new mother's groups going on? I attend a couple here and they have been invaluable for meeting people in similar situations. Thank you all in advance for your help. Charlie
We recently visited Buddha Eden in Bombarral, near to Caldas da Rainha which friends had recommended and it was well worth a visit. It is very beautiful and peaceful.If you have children they will love the the train ride and the terracotta soldiers. The entire experience is well worth the effort. There is also a cafeteria.and wine shop.http://buddhaeden.com

Hello !We have a 4 1/2 years old daughter and we are going to move to lisbon from next november. I'm looking for a primary school for her but it's difficult via internet only! All advices are welcome, i will greatly appreciate if you could share your own experiences or suggest some names ! Right now she is fluent in french & english ( also dutch as she is born and live in holland) and we are looking for a good portuguese school, public or private. No "international schools" for us, as we are not real "expats" ;-) Many thanks in advance, MArie.
