We're the best school in Alimosho

As it is in most of the best primary schools in Lagos that use the British curriculum, our Elementary School is made up of Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary.

Our Lower Elementary School

In the Lower Elementary School, which is Year 1 – Year 3, our pupils receive favourable education that enhances their development of core skills in literacy and numeracy. In a case whereby a child is experiencing difficulties in learning, our school offers a learning-support programme, and this programme is one of the reasons parents regard Citytop school one of the best primary schools in Lagos.

Our aim is to make school enjoyable for our pupils; so we incorporate fun into learning and structure our learning environment to make learning easy for our pupils.

Here are some more reasons why parents regard us one of the best primary schools in Lagos and entrust their children in our care:

  •         We guide and encourage positive behaviour among peers and promote collaboration through group activities.
  •         We offer them an opportunity to learn a unique form of communication
  •         We engage our pupils in activities that enable them to develop self-confidence
Our Upper Elementary School

The Upper Elementary School is from Year 4 to Year 6. The lessons taught in these classes build on the Upper Elementary School’s lessons, and the British Curriculum becomes more specialized, with the addition of new knowledge and skill training.

Using the curriculum, our teachers expand on the core literacy and numeracy knowledge and teach our pupils how to use the knowledge to solve problems. Your child will also be exposed to coding and the use of Information Communication Technology, in order to equip him or her with hands-on experience on the latest technology.

Aside from academics, the way we guide our students towards attaining self-discipline and personal organisation is another significant reason our Elementary School is believed to be one of the best primary schools in Alimosho. Once a child joins us in Year 4, we focus on raising the level of behavioural expectations, by guiding the child on how to be responsible.
