EPM is a private, non-profit international school serving grades one through to 12. It receives funding from the Portuguese government.

The school’s foundation recently announced it had appointed a new president, the lawyer Jorge Neto Valence, to take over from Roberto Carneiro – who has been at the helm since the school first opened its doors in 1998.

About 750 students are currently enrolled in the Macau Portuguese School.
