Large campus with 6,500 sqm (71,500 sqft) of outdoor spaces and play areas
The Campus of the United Lisbon International School is located at Avenida Marechal Gomes da Costa no 9, next to the Park of Nations and a 10-minute drive from the center of Lisbon. It is the largest international school campus in central Lisbon and creates a safe, spacious and green learning environment in urban Lisbon.
The completely renovated and rebuild facilities will provide – apart from state-of-the-art learning environment – natural outdoor areas and sports facilities (outdoor/indoor), and a black-box theatre for the school and the community.
The interior of the former university building is being completely remodeled to create more than 7’500 sqm of transparent and open learning spaces that seamlessly integrate technology and align with the 21st century pedagogy of the school. The large and light classrooms are connected to central learning hubs, which give room for various forms of collaborative and self-guided learning.
The library, designed as an open space research center, allows students not only to indulge in the pleasure of reading, but also advance their school projects through focused research in collaborative workspaces. Modern science labs, arts workshops and a large maker space area allow for applied and project-based learning with a focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) subjects.
All learning spaces help students to obtain relevant skills for the 21st century and beyond. In addition to facilitating delivery of the required curriculum, they also foster the development of an entrepreneurial and creative mindset by encouraging students to explore their own interests, providing hands on learning opportunities, and instigating critical thinking skills and self-confidence.
New-built sports facilities (indoor and outdoor) as well as a black-box theatre are being built right on campus, contributing to student growth through team sports, music and performing arts. Its location in central Lisbon, just one km away from the Park of Nations, puts the school in a unique position to enrich student learning through experiences beyond the classroom building on collaborations with local partners and corporations.
