See the Top 20 Most Expensive Secondary Schools In Nigeria here. The detriment of government schools and the lackadaisical attitude of the government has given rise to the birth of many private schools in Nigeria.
Private schools have been able to salvage the depleting education system by raising standard of education and as a result, they get more patronage than government schools not withstanding the fact that they are expensive and can be afforded only by the rich and middle class citizens.
There are different categories or grades of private schools, some operate with fees within a range of hundred thousand and others have millions as their fee range.
Top 20 Most Expensive Secondary Schools In Nigeria
Nigerian parents spend a lot to lay a good educational foundation for their children; the amount of money they spend is quite huge despite the harsh economy.
Some parents and wards actually have more than one child or ward in private schools but the good thing is that these private schools do not fall short of their expectations at instilling the right educational values in their students.
Children who attend privates schools are often very bold, outspoken, confident and are quick to identify and show case their talents because their schools devout time and resources towards bringing out the best in them. A child who attends a government school on the other hand is also smart and talented but is left entirely on his own to harness his gifts, build his confidence and to find balance in his journey of self-discovery.
