We have a lot to celebrate and thank God Almighty for. Ostra Heights College has come of age since her quest to provide wholesome, sound and qualitative education began 13 years ago (that is in 2006). The school is established and runs with a vision rooted in the word of God. This is reflected in our endless pursuit of excellence, honesty, creativity, and learning experiences.
We have an imposing two-storey edifice which houses state-of-the-art facilities such as: well-spaced and ventilated classrooms conducive for learning; well-stocked e-Library, fully equipped Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Language, Home-economics/Foods and Nutrition laboratories. Others are ultra-modern ICT laboratory, and Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre; magnificent Arts and Craft, and Music studios; a lush Geographical garden, and a school mini-farm (for fish rearing and plant cultivation). Also, the school boasts of a multipurpose hall (which sits up to 500 people), a multipurpose sports court for games such as volleyball, basketball, handball, lawn tennis and others. Our Entrepreneurship (Skill acquisition) centre is second to none wherein students are trained to acquire various “Hands-on” skills cutting across many fields. Our students enjoy sumptuous and well balanced diets during lunch in well-furnished and ventilated refectories.
This is a team that has the best job in the world – moulding lives educationally, spiritually and emotionally. It is no mean task. The faculty of teachers we have in Ostra Heights College have been equipped for this. Ostra Heights College’s teaching staff members have been through series of training, workshops, seminars and drills for no other reason than to serve you better and make royalty out of our pupils and students. Our trust is in God and our strength lies in the edification of time-tested principles of administration, which have seen us grow stronger with every challenge and better with each passing day.

PRIMARY EDUCATION FOR FUTURE LEADERS
Elementary education establishes the foundation from where learning, growth and development of the individuals take place. It is where most children learn to read, learn the fundamental concepts of science and mathematics, and where they gain a basic understanding of the world and its history.
Our school has a reputation for being a secured and organized place where our pupils excel in academics so as to bring about excellence in all aspects of life. We are very diligent in creating a program which is sizeable, personalized, caring, and high achieving.
At Ostra Elementary School, our goal is to provide basic education knowledge and develop the foundational skills, attitudes and values, essential to the child’s personal enhancement; necessary for living and contributing to a developing and changing society.
We strive to inculcate permanent literacy and numeracy, and the ability to communicate effectively. To achieve this, we put together highly qualified and progressive educators who are dedicated to providing our pupils with relevant instructions. It is our practice and culture to reach each child academically as well as socially, morally and emotionally. Our teaching and learning style goes beyond cognitive; we seek to tap and harness the hidden potential in our pearl children. Thus, we are in the business of producing a total child.
Our twenty-first century learning environment and unique teaching approach make us stand out among our counterparts. As a result of our rich curriculum and excellent performance of our pupils over the years, our school has become one of the most recognized and sought-after elementary schools in Lagos and all over Nigeria. Our pupils are made globally relevant through a blend of British and Nigerian curriculum. This allows pupils to have a deeper understanding of the subject matter and how to apply the material that they have learnt in the classroom in a real-world situation.
Ostra Elementary School has a very supportive and involving parent community. We strongly believe that a strong partnership between our school and the home is pivotal to pupils and school’s success.

SCHOOL FOR THE YOUNG GEMS
Gone were the days when children as tender as one year old were bundled to care centres so that mothers could have some respite and do some domestic chores. The subject matter and learning in these care centres continue to divide opinions and generate controversies. Ostra Preschool emerges to bring answers to the endless questions asked and give the parents of our children, something to smile about.
On entering the school, the colorful environment appeals to the psyche of the children and triggers the creativity in them. Apart from the aesthetic beauty, a rich well cultivated and balanced curriculum has been developed for children from the age of one. This means that at this level, pupils naturally learn to appreciate, explore and enjoy their environment with the tender guidance of professional teachers. They are given the opportunity to exhibit their innate potentials.
At Ostra Preschool, we have created an environment where every child feels special and loved. This gives them the confidence to express themselves freely. Each pupil is allowed to learn at his\her own pace. Their individual uniqueness is given utmost consideration and the result is quite outstanding. We offer the British Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with excellent links with the Nigerian Curriculum using some Montessori principles and resources.
Our Preschool is a learning community in which pupils, teachers and parents work and learn together.
