Vale Verde International School (VVIS) is an international school located in Burgau, Algarve, Portugalmarker. The school was established in 2002 when it obtained its official license from the Ministry of Education. VVIS has an emphasis on Britishmarker education and follows a modified version of the Englishmarker curriculum and prepares students for IGCSE and A level examinations. All IGCSE subjects are based on the Cambridge University curriculum. Admission to the school is dependent on a successful interview and entry examination.

The school has achieved a 100% IGCSE pass rate since it started operation in 2002. It later became a member of the European Council of International Schools ECIS and the Council of International Schools CIS. It is also an accredited University of Cambridge Examinations Centre.

In 2007 it received planning permission to build Portugal's first bilingual primary school which delivers some subjects in Portuguese. All English taught classes will have a Portuguese speaking assistant teacher. The bilingual concept took two years to devise and formed the basis of a Masters in International Education dissertation by its director, Louise De Beer.

In August 2009, the school announced that construction for the primary school would double school capacity and building size. It claimed that building was to be completed by January 2010.

VVIS also completed a purpose built theatre in 2008, following the successful addition of a sports centre and an adaptable marque for open air productions and dining purposes.
