The 70.4-acre (285,000 m2) campus is fenced to secure the safety of the students.

Writer's Review

Although it welcomes boys and girls of all faiths, it is one of the most academically selective secondary schools in Nigeria as evidenced in 2010 when 5000 wrote the school entrance exam and it accepted 100, or 2% of its applicants. The school suffered a major tragedy when 60 students lost their lives in the 2005 crash of Sosoliso Airlines Flight 1145\. A multipurpose hall named Memorial Hall was built to commemorate these students.
