Overview

Standard Bearers School (SBS) was established at a time when the educational system in Nigeria was going through a difficult phase. The idea to establish SBS was borne out of the desire of the founder to create a school where academic and creative talents were given similar priorities.

SBS is a family school that offers holistic education to parents seeking a technology-driven, 21st-century education for their children. We are lifelong learners who belong to a community where all individuals are valued and supported on their journey to self-discovery.
