The Portuguese community has strong roots in New Bedford, MA. The two Portuguese schools in New Bedford have merged into a single organization. The merged organization will maintain the two campuses, one at the Coggeshall St location in the North End and the other on Crapo St in the South End.
We are a school dedicated to teaching children, grades 1 – 9, the Portuguese language and culture. We are privileged to have teachers who are certified and educated from Portugal.
The children enrolled in the Casa da Saudade campus visit the library for special workshops, storytelling, and to take out Portuguese books. Children of the PUE campus can enroll in the traditional folkloric rancho dance group. The school children participate in cultural events and community service.
