THE AMAZING THING ABOUT US AT
Standard Bearers School

How SBS Began.

Standard Bearers School was founded at a time when Nigeria’s educational system was facing a challenging period. While there appeared to be an abundance of schools at the time, educational standards were quickly deteriorating. The idea to establish SBS was borne out of the desire of the founder, Mrs. Modupe Adeyinka-Oni, to create a school where academic and creative talents are given similar priorities. As an educator at heart and a teacher in a high-brow primary school at the time, it was agonizing for Mrs. Oni (as she’s fondly called) to see pupils struggle with schools that were too big for inclusion, and curriculums that were difficult for every child to grasp. This being the exact opposite of what she experienced growing up, she resigned from her job and set out to recreate the primary school of her childhood, thereby filling the void she saw in the system.

SBS opened its doors on January 7th, 1997 with a small group of dedicated teachers and a few students.

The school has grown considerably over the last two decades and is currently occupying a state-of-the-art facility on 4,500 square meters of prime property in the heart of Lekki Phase 1, Off Admiralty Way, Lagos.
The SBS experience continues to revolve around laying a foundation of academic excellence in a loving and warm environment where every child feels safe and valued.
