We are a people-driven education destination and learning hub equipped with the requisite know-how to deliver 21st century learning strategies to our pupils and students. We lean into the power of an engaged community of students and staff to furnish the former with core competencies needed to ride the crest of dizzying change occasioned by the twin forces of globalization and digitalization in this information age.
We are subdivided into the Montessori, Elementary school and College sections; and through cross-sectional or horizontal collaborations ensure that foundational, moral lessons inculcated in our pupils are sustained through their elementary school years and consolidated in their college experience ( where teenage inclinations invariably set in). We also ensure that they get a global perspective and could rub shoulders with their peers in other parts of the world by running the Cambridge curriculum alongside the Nigerian equivalent.
Being a value-driven institution and one very much attuned to constantly changing educational realities, we place a premium on honing our students' skills in such areas as: future-ready leadership, critical & analytical thinking and self-mastery. To that effect, we make it mandatory that all our year 10 students attend a three-week training on civic, leadership and moral development at the prestigious Citizenship and Leadership Training Center (aka Sea School), Apapa, Lagos, under Nigeria's Ministry of Youth and Sports Development. This goes a long way in potentiating and positioning them for the task of leadership the very next academic year. Hence, we engender a self-perpetuating ecosystem of leaders.
We also provide boarding services. Our boarding houses are festooned with state-of-the-art facilities, geared towards stimulating and building such values in the child as teamwork, self-awareness, emotional intelligence and inter-dependence.
With recent research showing that "out of the ten categories of geniuses on earth only two can be found in the school environment", we ensure that our students balance out academic work with other mind-stimulating activities like proficiency in playing musical instruments and actively participating in variegated sporting activities, chief amongst which are volleyball and basketball. It goes without saying we guarantee a culture and learning environment that enhances the development of "a total child" ; a child whose innate abilities are efficiently stimulated and one in whom there's an amalgamation of talent, skills, enthusiasm, commitment to excellence and courage.
In conclusion, we boast a vibrant ICT and Media department, saddled the responsibilities of equipping our pupils and students with necessary ICT skills (in tandem with the uncertainties of a constantly-evolving digital and data-obsessed age), providing them with requisite exposure and visibility on the global stage, whilst also forging and maintaining deep ties and connections with an ever-bourgeoning community of alumni the world over. Suffice it to say that, the world is Ostralite's for the taking.
