4 Reasons to Choose Grundtvig

As parents, choosing a school for our children is one of the most important decisions we will make, since that decision will go a long way in shaping their future. Below are 4 reasons to consider Grundtvig International Secondary School when making that decision:

1. A Unique Educational Philosophy

Our school is founded on our rich tradition and the educational philosophy of Bishop NFS Grundtvig of Denmark (1783-1872). This philosophy has inspired schools in other parts of the world, including the USA, and was extolled by US President Barack Obama at the 2016 Nordic State Dinner. Grundtvig’s work “ended up having a ripple effect on the civil rights movement,” Obama said, adding he “might not be standing here” were it not for his teachings. It is therefore no surprise that we emerged “Best in Value-Based Education” and “Life Skill Development School of the Year” at the 2016 West African Quality Education Awards (WAQEA) held at Sheraton Hotel Lagos in July 2016.

2. Academic Excellence

Our students have repeatedly achieved one of the best WAEC results in Nigeria. Our school was honoured with Platinum Awards for Excellence for being among the top ten performing schools in WAEC examinations in the country in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

3. Christian Principles

We are firmly grounded on Christian principles, with regular moral instruction, and all students are encouraged to worship and practice their faith. Importantly, we also affirm the values of our shared humanity, expressed by Bishop NFS Grundtvig in the words: ‘First a man, then a Christian’. We therefore foster religious tolerance and peaceful co-existence which is sorely needed in today’s world.

4. Home Away From Home

Our dormitories are designed to feel homely, with one-student rooms, two-student rooms, four-student rooms and eight-student rooms, with each single bed having its own built-in wardrobe. There are no double bunks or crowded rooms. House parents and portresses provide supervision round the clock to a small cluster of students. There is zero tolerance for any form of bullying!
