From The Executive Director's Desk
Discipline, Integrity, Confidence and Excellence acronymed DICE are the four (4) cornerstones synonymous to the existence of this great citadel of learning christened- Impact International Schools. It is situated in a serene and tranquil environment conducive for learning and meditation at Alagbaka, Akure.
It came on board in September, 2005 to address the prevailing awful decadence and falling standard of education in Nigeria generally and Ondo State in particular with a vision of providing all round foundational education of world-class standards, balanced enough to equip children for the present and the future, in a disciplined and intellectually stimulating environment.Today, Impact International Schools, not minding the globally-affirmed negative economic indices is a leading international independent school, committed to Discipline, Integrity, Confidence and Excellence in pre-primary and primary education, and post primary education.
Our reputation is built on strong international and local leadership with a determination to provide the highest quality teaching with a broad and stimulating blend of the UK and US curricular designed to provide not only an excellent understanding of the various subjects but also a sound grasp of fundamental skills. It is adapted to include appropriate elements of Nigerian studies and topics relating to the continent of Africa. Emphasis is on the Montessori system of education and admission is open to every successful candidate irrespective of their nationality, ethnicity or religious background. Class size is kept small to ensure that pupils receive individual attention necessary for a good education.
In a positive and child-focused environment, the school seeks to allow children to develop their potentials. Teachers and their assistants work closely together to plan and monitor the curriculum, thus ensuring consistency across classes in each year group, and continuity and progression as children move up through the school.
The school is set in landscaped grounds, which include dedicated play and sport facilities with a special multi marked sports surface. In Impact, we believe that the learning process must be fun and so we provide interesting teaching/instructional materials to enhance easy understanding and application of concepts.
The school stresses educational breadth, so pupils and students are provided with an environment in which they can develop intellectually, socially and spiritually helping them to move from childhood to adulthood in such a way that they will be able to take their places in the society as successful, responsible, hardworking, compassionate and sensitive people.
Also, there is a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities in which pupils and students are encouraged to pursue interests beyond their studies. It is not all work and no relaxation as pupils and students travel widely for competitions and participation in various academic activities and games with other international schools locally and overseas as a regular part of school life. Emphasis is based on learning through internal and external school activities such as excursions, interactions and collaborations with well-meaning individuals and clubs.
Parents, pupils and students at the school have high expectations. They expect to achieve good academic results as a passport to higher education and a future career. The school has an efficient and time tested medium for effective communication between parents and teachers on the performance of our pupils. As a pace setter and trail-blazer in the education industry and more importantly “with the eyes of God” (our school motto), the school has successfully turned its vision to mission by;
