Top Most Expensive Secondary Schools In Nigeria 



By Balogun Kamilu Lekan

Due to the drop in educational standards at government-sponsored schools, private schools have sprung up to fill the gaps, resulting in a severe disparity in the school system.

While Nigeria battles the problem of out-of-school children, which UNESCO estimates to be 20 million, there are school owners who profit from the system’s failure.

Nigeria is estimated to have approximately 9,500 public secondary schools and 17,000 private secondary schools.

Below is a list of the most expensive schools in Nigeria and their fee

Middle school tuition is approximately $28,049, and $32,165 for High School.
