Are you looking for the top 100 Best Secondary Schools in Nigeria 2021? Secondary schools play a major role in the educational sector in Nigeria.

For the most part, they help students in finding out their strengths and weaknesses which are pivotal in making choices when it comes to that critical decision-making point in the overlap between the secondary school and the university.

They help groom students thoroughly in sciences and arts depending on their choices so they can have an edge in their academic endeavors in the university.

Most persons have fared on well with life and made names for themselves with just a WAEC certificate and they can even convince you that going to the university is a waste of resources.

That’s entirely one huge conversation on the side.

Bottom line; secondary schools are preparatory grounds and play the major roles in the life of every student in Nigeria.

Their importance can’t be over-emphasized and that’s a given.

They were around long before the universities and colleges began gaining entry into the mainstream educational setting in Nigeria.

In Nigeria, the number of secondary schools is too numerous to quantify and that would make ranking them one arduous task to indulge in.

However, some secondary schools have made a significant impact that’s too glaring to go unnoticed.

Most of these secondary schools are almost encroaching into the roles of the universities by using broader curriculums and some even adopting Western curriculums and standards.

Products of these schools go into the universities well equipped intellectually and walk over a lot of things their colleagues will grumble over.

They often stay ahead of their counterparts educationally because they are coming from the best in the country.

These secondary schools pay an awfully steep fortune for fees.

These fees could see someone through the university, master’s degree inclusive.

Some of them are affiliated to Western countries which are reflected in their names.

For instance, there is the Nigeria-Turkish Secondary School, The British International High School, Canadian High School, and many others.

In this list, we will be looking at the top 100 of these schools that could attempt to rival some colleges and budding universities sprawling around the huge expanse of Nigeria’s soil.
