    I guess the school would have to buy laptop computers for every pupil, take them on at least 3 excussions outside the country each year etc. I’m just trying to see what justifies this mountainous charge.

    As for me, even if I would spend this much on my child, it would be at the Secondary School level.

      What are heck

      This is the price i paid for University of East London in UK while study and also do a night work.

      Private School fee has minimum to maximum allowed by UK government.

      Nigeria government need to set this type of system for private School in my Naija land.

      2million, I am very sure that the students of this so call School can not compete with China students or compete in Genius children feature on TV channel.

      The most annoying part was my Nigeria private School certificate/result, Unilag Certificate was useless after I get to UK during hunting for good job, The certificate only fetch me potter’s job as the employer will just look my CV and not get back to me due to my Nigeria education and experience after calling employer for investigation, I just start studing Clinical Psychology again to gain a good career.

      Our government need to help us because ordinary European that cannot speak good English will even get the job I am qualified for.

      Anyway it’s not their fault, If not my country system that force me to volunteer myself for second Slavery.

      This is just show off School for the parents or the School is for Millionaire children meet with each other and become friends and build relationship from their.

      Somebody advise me, How many modules are the students doing?

    You cannot cry foul over some misfortune you brought upon yourself. It is not compulsory that one send his or her child to the school if he is outside of the income bracket of people who send their children there. With many of the people who patronize super extra expensive schools, it is the snub value that attracts them; with half of the remaining fraction just trying to keep up with the jones.
    However, since no be by force say make pikin go there, I don’t think anybody has the right to complain against the astute business sense of the proprietors of those schools. Fees too high? Too bad, just grin and bear it!!!

    This is the huge problem the nation is facing in the education sector. Most of our public schools do not have those equipments needed to teach these students effectively. Even many of the school facilities are nothing to write home about. And this eventually gave rise to Private schools that are now on the increase with high prices. I wouldn’t blame them much. Its very clear that, that school is meant for the rich and not for the poor. So Let’s blame our government for this. If education is given the utmost priority in nigeria by our government then we will not see the widespread of the so called private schools. So nothing one can do about the price of that school. Even the government cannot determine the school fee price for private school. So what are we now talking about?

    The rich, my foot. Most of these people have stolen from the country, stripped our schools, universities and hospitals of essential funds needed to upgrade and keep them modern and up to date standards, leaving the basic needs of the majority of our children unmet. How many honest, hard-working people can afford to pay this kind of school fees, except for those thieves that have looted our country one way or another? What purpose is a primary school certificate to a child, to cost so much? Nigeria is really in need of deliverance. What a pity!

    Haba this money is too much for an Elementary school kids. What is going to happen if the proprietor of this school get an accreditation to establish University?. The students will be paying in Billions. You don’t even spend a huge fortune on average American kids going to the best school to complete their education. What is really wrong with us in Nigeria? Can’t we emulate good things and bring it in into our society? America has a unique system called “No child left behind” your children can go to the same school with Obama kids even if you don’t have up to require money the government will substitute because they want all kids to benefit from the same quality of education that Obama kids has. We can do the same by upgrading our school system not by embezzling the money earmarked for education. One thing that I want all looters to know is, whatever we do today will surely have an either positive or negative effect on our children tomorrow.

    nobody should enroll their children in that school they will be forced to bring down the price

    To be honest with you guys, the most expensive things are not necessary the best in most cases. Almost 99% of our presidents, governors, senators, reps, former Head of State, great man of God with their own private universities today, and highly successful Nigerian businessman and women are from very poor background. They had no such opportunity to attend expensive schools, primary, secondary and even universities. For example, former President Jonathan walked to primary and secondary schools bear footed, yet by God design arrangements he became Nigerian President. What about OBJ, IBB, Abacha, Pastor Adeboye, Pastor Oyedapo, PMB and many more are all from humble background?. But I’m not saying is wrong for any parent to send their children to the best school in Nigeria and abroad for quality education, but that is not a determinate factor to greatness. Quality education is not measure by tuition or school fees, but by teachers and students seriousness and determination to pass knowledge and information and learn whst is being taught in the school.However, private schools are in the business of making money, and therefore, the school can charge up to N10 million per year for its service. Why is this unnecessary outrage or agitation?

    I applaud certain authors whose contributions to this medium is informative. @Endure, Lola O and Omokehinde you all have contributed meaningful responses. However, the point is, the quality of education receiving by the affected students may not equates the tuition paid in all ramification. In most cases the academic performances of the students are relatively on the average thereby resulting in promotion of students without merit. Such practices does nothing but encourage lack of discipline and seriousness among students. I have heard cases whereby teachers were given instructions to provide answers to exam questions for students to help them pass certain external exams. I honestly believe most part of the tuition would be expended towards excursion abroad. Nevertheless, this is part of their strategies to encourage students’ enrollment with the school. In actuality, students are often promised such incentives during holidays. That said, it is absurd that certain private schools engage in practices of charging exorbitant fees on education annually in a poverty stricken country, whereby more than half of the population lives below the poverty line. Of course, majority of these schools remains in the establishment for profit-making. However, only the depraved wretch without conscience who makes looting their habits can afford such privileges. Truly, honest hard-working persons will have second thought before enrolling their wards into such school. As Lola rightly mentioned,”What purpose is primary school certificate to a child, to cost so much?” The schools established by the above-mentioned churches and organizations is outrageously expensive and inaccessible to majority of their members. Only if one is privy to dig deeper in the backgrounds of school proprietor(s) surely, one may discover he or she has no such privilege growing-up. Yet, the only way they can give back to the society wherein they grew-up is lading fellow citizens or brethren with heavy burdens. On the other hand, apparently, Nigeria government gives less priority to education sector. And if they do, the funds will not be spent wisely or hardly reached the appropriate hands.

    Can the corruption crusade be extended to this school and the likes, to investigate who owns the school and to were all these fees are going to. You wld be surprised that the school is funded from misappropriated public funds by our so called politicians who are still exploiting Nigeria citizens of the little they toiled for.
    Anyway, no one is being forced to put their ward(s) in such school.
    At the same time, there is money in this country squandered by few Nigerians, so they may not be moved with this allegation.

    Why should anyone care if they charge millions in USD? United States Dollar? Is the school holding guns to anyone’s head to bring their children? ******

    it’s somehow gratuitous to know that most people are still under the carnage of who is fooling whom. The so-called schools who prioritize the best for most of their pupils should somehow be granted some encomiums. Public Schools we say can’t neccesarily provide half as what this school will provide to their pupils. regardless of the insanitary fees that are being exercised on which parent comes there. what we only have to do is. Let the school be. No be by force we go use take give horse water. even if an by force we use take carry am go river.
