  1. Capital Science Academy is still one the best secondary school in Nigeria.. what is your criteria for this judgement? Recipient of African Achievers’ Award UK, NADVA and FCT awards for the best performing school in Nigeria.

  2. If you’re talking about academic excellence, you need to include schools like Oritamefa baptist model School, Ibadan (OBMS). Check out the results of this great school in WAEC for more than a decade. You will be surprised that real academic quality stands out.

    • You can’t use waec to judge academic excellence when just one out of every ten secondary schools in Nigeria today abstain from examination malpractice. This vice is rampant in private schools compared to the public ones. I have attended schools in the north, west and east the situation is the same every I go. Thats why u see students with excellent waec results performing woefully in the tertiary institutions or worse still they end up dropping out those whose parents got wealth fly them abroad to study in more money higher grade oriented universities and at the end of the day, we would be having half baked graduates. This graduates would fill in posts of leadership in the society and the nation at large but mind you they would perform woefully and even worse when compared to their predecessors. These would be as a result of the knowledge they are lacking. They would be far from upholding any moral standard because the malpractice they indulged in during the school days is itself is immorality of the highest order. When all these are happening anarchy,chaos, instability, ethnicity and other vices would set in because only a nation of highly and soundly educated citizen would profer solution that would avoid such vices, they would be that factor that would determine the development of their nation. Their being morally upright would be a factor that would determine the moral standards of their narion. Good values are what we need not the bad ones. It is saddening when teachers that are ensaddled with the responsibility of inculcating good behaviours are the ones misleading them. Shame, disgrace and dishonor shall always be the reward of any fool that aids and abet examination malpractice, this vice is affecting us as a nation in all ramifications. Any teacher, exam body or official etc that indulges in this vice would always have a disgraceful ending, the beast among them is the one calling his or herself ” teachers” for they know the truth but conceal it from their students,they hace failed to guide them towards what is right but succeeded in leading them astray pretending to help students by aiding and abetting malpractice, they ought to be stripped of which ever honour and qualification they must have been awarded,they are as good as illetrates for I see no good in being educated without moral.

  3. It saddens my heart that it is only private schools that are there. We need to review our public secondary education in Nigeria. It’s not that the students from private schools are better off but they are manage by capable hands and sometimes it’s all about the force multiplier( money)
