List of international schools in Lagos Nigeria

List of international schools in Lagos Nigeria

Here is my small list of prestigious international schools in Lagos Nigeria. Mind you they are not all the international schools we have in Lagos Nigeria they just happen to be on my list. The listing of these schools is in no particular order and they do not reflect their levels of prestige either. These schools are naturally for middle class and upper class folks as their fees are quite high. Of course this list will continually be updated to let you know more about enrolment, admission requirements and school fees where possible.

In Lekki and Victoria Island Area of Lagos

  1. Meadow Hall
  2. Green springs (Ajah)
  3. Pampers Private School
  4. Ocean Crest Private School
  5. Pinefield Schools
  6. Children’s International School
  7. Chrisland Schools
  8. British International School
  9. Delightsome British Home School
  10. American international School
  11. Italian International School
  12. Dowen College
  13. New hall schools (Chevron View Estate)
  14. Lagoon Schools

In Ikoyi

  1. Greenwood Schools
  2. Diamonds Private School
  3. Corona Schools
  4. Home science School
  5. Kings College
  6. St. Gregory’s College (Catholic Missionary school or CMS)
  7. Holy Child School for Girls (CMS)

On the mainland

  1. Chrisland (Opebi)
  2. Childville Schools (Yaba and GRA Ogudu)
  3. Christ the King International School (GRA Ikeja)
  4. Redeemers International School (Ebute metta)
  5. International School Lagos (Unilag Staff School)
  6. Armville Schools
  7. Vivian Fowler Memorial School for girls
  8. Queens College Yaba
  9. St. Agnes School for girls Yaba (CMS)

Most of these schools have top notch facilities and quality staff. However I cannot vouch for all of them except a few which I will not mention here. In addition please note that most of these schools have both elementary arms and secondary arms as well.

Shocked that you don't have St. Saviour's School, Ebute Metta on your list. It's the oldest private primary school in Nigeria and the best school.

Try Children's International School at Lekki, they have qualified teachers with experience in handling kids from many countries and I know a few pupils in that school whose spoken English wasn't very good when they joined.

A list of international schools in Lagos that don't include Grange school, Ikeja and Lagos Preparatory school, Ikoyi? With kids from all over the world and possibly the largest number of europeans, asians etc, I would say Lagos prep is as international as it gets. Fees is quite high - 2013/14 academic year is 10.500 a further 15,000 for new entrants. Grange is a long standing school with excellent academic achievements in their secondary school (this was when Pope was the head, don't know how the knew head, stuttard formerly at lagos prep will fair). Most of grange kids make straight A's. Hope this helps

OceanCrest School is the best school around Lekki/Ajah axis.They offer quality education ,highly trained staff and serene learning enviroment.I was invited by a friend to their end of session award and drama presentation. I couldn't help but admire my friends kids interest and love for school. I was marveled at the sight of her children's books. Inshort, my son will definitely be joining them by September. I have checked through other schools, but I must confess, OceanCrest School is the best. It is located at the Lekki alternative road b4 Oniru New Market.Give it a try nd u will b glad u did.

Heard Meadow Hall opened a branch in Ikoyi recently,it is located at no 5,Oba Elegushi second avenue Ikoyi. I went there for my son,its a beauty to behold,same standard with the Lekki school but in a more cozy and serene space with more one on one teacher to student time in my opinion.Bought the form right away.

I am moving in Lagos from Canada, and wanted to know, if any of these international schools has Canadian curriculum? I need to keep in my mind that my kids would go back to Canada for further studies anytime, so need to ensure that curriculum and education system remains the same. Anyone who may help???
