Learning Support Programme
Carlucci American International School of Lisbon (CAISL), accredited
by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and ECIS, was
founded in 1956 to provide an American-type educational program for
children of families of diplomats, US military, international, American
and Portuguese business.
The American curriculum prepares students to enter institutions of
higher learning in the USA, Portugal, and the UK. The IB Diploma Program
and IB certificates are offered. AP examinations are also available
in American history, art, biology, calculus, chemistry, English literature,
modern European history, and French. Specialists provide help to students
with special needs in reading, English-as-a-Second-Language, and mild
learning disabilities. Standardized tests are administered throughout
the school to measure pupil progress. All students receive instruction
on computers and have access to and use the school libraries.
Of the 67 professional staff members, 25 are US citizens, and 27 have
earned graduate degrees. Twenty percent of the students are US citizens,
51% are Portuguese, and 29% represent 26 other nationalities.
Extra-curricular activities include Model UN, yearbook, drama, photo
and computer clubs, and musical and drama groups. Students in grades
10-12, with qualifying grades, are eligible for membership of the
National Honor Society. Sport competitions are scheduled with six
other local schools and schools in other countries. There are school
teams in basketball, soccer, track and field, volleyball, and cross-country.
Admission is based upon records from previous schools, and the ability
of CAISL to offer a program appropriate for the needs of the applicant.
