Agrupamento de Escolas de Airães
Our institution was founded on April 24th,2002.
In 2009/2010, secondary education was added to the curriculum.
Nowadays, our student community is quite diversified and includes students of gypsy ethnicity and students with special needs.
Our school - Agrupamento de Escolas de Airães - welcomes children and teenagers from all educational levels, from pre-primary to secondary education. Besides, it also provides vocational and professional education. Our school is located in Felgueiras county and it´s a public school, under the responsibility of the Ministry of Education. It is the head school that manages and coordinates several schools which fall under its jurisdiction and responsibility, mainly primary schools
. Most of our students come from economically depressed families with poor educational background. So, some of our main goals are: to help the students who are at risk of dropping out, to integrate them and to make sure that they develop the skills they need to further their education or find a job, depending on their life objectives. In order to achieve this, we promote all kinds of activities related to the development of different curricula, paying particular attention to the students who show learning difficulties. We also work on developing our students' reading habits all year round by organizing activities at school and participating in major national and international projects. We work for the happiness of our students!
