American International School Lagos Is The Most Expensive Secondary School In Nigeria

Top 5 Secondary Schools In Nigeria

It is an obvious fact that Education isn’t cheap in Nigeria anymore, at least definitely not in the schools we are about to see in this article below.

  • American International School (With Annual Fees Of 5 million)

In 1963, Foreign Service families got together to devise plans for a school that would provide American curriculum based education to their children. The following year the doors of the American School of Lagos opened for the first time. That same year, 1964, the US Department of State established the Office of Overseas Schools with a mission to “promote quality educational opportunities at the elementary and secondary level for dependents of American citizens abroad.

One project supporting schools overseas was a study to explore a way for US public school districts to support some of these small schools. 32 school districts and 32 schools overseas were selected for the ensuing project. Each district was presented with five overseas schools in wide ranging foreign countries and at various levels of development from which they could choose. The primary purpose of these partnerships was to make the materials and human resources of the US school district available to the overseas school. In turn, the school district would gain an international connection and experience for its own program.


  • Grande Schools, Ikeja Lagos (With Annual Fees of N4.5 Million)

    Grange School is a school in Ikeja, a city, local government and capital of Lagos State, Nigeria. Grange School was founded in 1958 by a group of British expatriates, to provide education of equivalent standard to that which obtains in the UK.

As part of the 40th anniversary in September 1998, the Board felt it was time to add a secondary school for continuity and stability in the education of the pupils.

The Primary Phase prepares pupils for the KeyStage 2 CheckPoint examinations.

The secondary school therefore continues into Key Stage 3 culminating in the Checkpoint Exams and Key Stage 4 which culminates in the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). Both exams are under the auspices of the University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES).


  • British International School (With Annual Fees Of N4.48 million)

British International School also called BIS is a multi-national, co-educational school offering a British style curriculum to students aged between 11 and 18 years. It serves both the Nigerian local community and expatriates looking for a British education within an international setting. The school opened in September 2001 and occupies a large and attractive thirty acre site on Victoria Island in the heart of the city.

It is both day and boarding with boarders representing approximately one third of the current school population. Weekly boarding is offered alongside full boarding and we offer a family atmosphere in which all students are known and valued, with class sizes never going above twenty. Students are prepared for the IGCSE and Advanced Level courses of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) with enviable success in terms of results.

We are committed to educating the whole child so that our students become rounded citizens of the future world. All are encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities whether sporting, cultural or creative.

We hope that you will enjoy browsing this site and better still will come and visit us in person. You will be made very welcome!


  • American International School, Abuja (With Annual Fees Of N4.3 Million)

The American International School of Abuja was founded in 1993 when a group of parents and U.S. Embassy officials recognized the need for a school that would adequately prepare students who reside in Nigeria to continue their education in American schools overseas. The FCDA (Federal Capital Development Authority) gave permission to use one section of the Model Secondary School Maitama compound as a temporary site, and for 12 years classes have been conducted on that site.

In August 2006 we opened the school year in the new facility, with brand-new classrooms, some familiar and some new teachers, and some familiar and some new students. Building on our success of previous years, our students are enjoying a very positive school experience at AISA.
