Agrupamento de Escolas António Correia de Oliveira is a public general secondary school which includes classes for, primary (235 students) and secondary education (621 students). Currently there are 856 enrolled students ranging from 6-15 years old, 79 teachers and 24 non-teaching staff.

Our students come from a county whose the main household activity is industry, coexisting with this mode of subsistence the traditional agriculture-oriented activities, where has been a subject of intense human pressure and a certain disordered urban occupation, with some disregard for nature and landscape values included in them. However, the city has assumed an important role in betting on the environment.

Our school throughout the years has been developing projects at national and international level in different areas, from arts, portuguese language, sports, science/biology and information technology and communication.
