Our schools are located in Vialonga, in the outskirts of Lisbon and our context is characterized by a great cultural, social and linguistic diversity, with students from different origins. Regarding the nationalities, the students come from Cape Verde, Brazil, Angola, Romania and Sao Tome and Principe. The presence of a strong community from PALOPs , already installed many years ago in the neighborhood, which is located in the immediate of the school bring a effective participation of students in our schools. At a later stage several students came from Eastern Europe and more recently Brazil has been increasing. The provenance of students of other nationalities is already more punctual.
