The Leading School in Lagos for Teaching & Learning
Greater Scholars offers a challenging curriculum which combines the inquiry based, child centered philosophy of the American education, with the rigor and discipline of the Nigerian tradition- a distinctive blend that sets us apart from other international schools. We have high expectations for our scholars and getting good grades is just the tip of the iceberg. We seek to ensure student’s total development and we place a strong emphasis on character building and skill mastery. We improve our students’ knowledge of the world, develop their talents, and teach them the personal skills they need to be successful outside our doors.
Our Pre- school program is focused on the development of the entire child. We deliver developmentally appropriate learning opportunities in a stimulating, engaging and imaginative environment. Learning will be focused on experimenting with hands-on materials as well as exploration. Play based education is an integral element of our students' learning at this stage
Our primary school program is centred on providing our students with a strong foundation in our core curriculum including numeracy, literacy, social studies, creative arts etc. We support this foundational learning, and encourage individual interests with immersive learning experiences and activities within and outside of the classroom. We also provide opportunities for our students to develop independent thinking and learning skills, with the aim of nurturing a love of learning early on in their academic career.
Our High School program is designed to help each student find a sense of understanding in an ever-changing and increasingly complex world. The curriculum involves academic challenge and is designed to encourage students to recognise the connections between learned academic knowledge and the real world. Our program provides each student with the tools they need to become critical and reflective thinkers.
