This article is a compilation of top secondary schools in Lagos and features the best schools you may want to consider enrolling your kids into.
Searching for the right secondary schools in Lagos for your kids after you just moved into a new neighborhood can be a pretty daunting task.
To most people, education is that magic key that opens that hypothetical door behind which there are riches, fame and all the good things in life. Some parents believe that the best thing they can do for their progeny is to offer them a formal education, not to leave them an inheritance or to lead them to ‘salvation’.
But this belief can be quite expensive, especially if you’re in Lagos and want the very best.
“If education is expensive, try ignorance,” is a quote that is supposed to discourage people from grumbling at the amount a few secondary schools in Lagos charge to formally educate children.
But how much is too much? We can agree that the educational standard in Nigeria is pretty poor, and due to this, various private schools are springing up, promising international-standard education. The only caveat is that it will cost you, and cost you millions.
