The Polytechnical School Luanda (Angola)
The Polytechnical School Luanda is one of seven ADPP Angola’s polytechnic schools in the country. The school started in 1991 as The School for Street Children in Luanda, teaching orphans and street children from 1st to 6th Grade. In 2002, the school added 7th and 8th Grade; then in 2006, it became a secondary school with teaching from 7th to 9th Grade only, in order to meet the growing need for secondary education in the area.
EPP – Escola Polivalente e Profissional program seeks to educate the whole person: mind, hands and heart. Graduates are knowledgeable, capable, dynamic young people who can contribute to development in Angola.
Since 2011, the school has offered two distinct programs: traditional secondary school from 7th to 9th Grade, taught in two shifts, morning and afternoon, and the EPP program for 7th, 8th and 9th Grade, taught as an all-day education. 55 EPP students graduated at the beginning of 2019 bringing the total number of graduates to 285, 141 of whom are female.
