I'd like to help but not sure what this school IS.

Is it a school of mixed English and Portuguese nationality or ownership?
Is it a school that teaches the English and Portuguese languages?

Assuming that the school does in fact teach the two languages, I believe your first and last examples are correct:

- Missionary School of English and Portuguese
- The Missionary School of English and Portuguese

I think last one probably more likely to be correct

The last one is more formal but both are possible.
