The “Agrupamento de Escolas de Frazão, Paços de Ferreira”, created in 2002, is composed of 4 schools, 3 schools with preschool education and primary education (EB nº1 de Frazão, EB de Seroa and EB de Arreigada), and the “Escola Básica de Frazão” (main school) with 2nd and 3rd cycle (5th to 9th grade). We have 950 students, 105 teachers and 42 staff members. The majority of our students are economically disadvantaged students.
The economic and social context and the poor academic and social results of the students led the group to integrate in 2012 the project : Educational Areas of Priority Intervention (TEIP). Its implementation resulted in significant improvement in school outcomes and a reduction in the rate of retention, failure, dropout, and absenteeism.
Our school has been active in Erasmus + projects since 2017 as well as many local / national projects.
In all schools, we have been working on content and developing activities aimed at developing knowledge and skills related to ecology, the environment, climate and climate change. As a result of this work, all our schools were awarded the blue flag of Eco-Escolas, a program that aims to work and recognize this same work in the area of the environment.
