The School Promotion Criteria
Parents/Guardians are advised to continuously charge their children/wards to strive towards meeting up with the school promotion criteria so as to earn promotion to the next class. New students are particularly advised to take note of the promotion criteria:
· SSS classes: 5 credits including English Language, Mathematics and three combinable subjects.
· JSS classes: 7 credits including English Language and Mathematics.
The minimum credit pass is 50% and the school has a standard policy on this. Parents/Guardians are advised to take note of these requirements and encourage their children/wards to study to achieve academic excellence.
· Ajani Olaoluwa (SS2B) was the first runner-up in a short story competition organised to commemorate the Girl-Child on 11 October, 2019 by Teach Her Foundation at the University of Ibadan.
· In a Mathematics competition organised by KSF International Academy for the Gifted, Oluwasanu Adeoluwa (JS3D) represented ISI and won a silver medal for his performance at the Junior School category (Cadet Category).
Parents/guardians of this category of students, particularly day students, are advised to create time for their children/wards and ensure their notebooks are thoroughly checked each day when they return from school. The students also need to be guided in doing their assignments and turning in same on time. The JSS1 students, not too long ago, were admitted into the secondary school and still need a lot of supervision to excel in their academics. This task should not be left to the school alone. Therefore, the home needs to be alive to this duty/responsibility, to complement the effort of the school in the developmental progress of the students.

For such payments, ensure that the narration of payment includes the name and class of your child/ward and the purpose of the lodgement (e.g. James Akintunde, JSS 2A; School fees, Ishola Oladeji JSS 2B; Boarding fees). The online generated transaction report/cyber receipt which will be generated online should be saved and sent as an attachment to email@example.com. The payment will be acknowledged by the issuance of receipt, which concerned parents can pick up from the Accounts department of the school.
Early Morning and Afternoon Classes for SSS2 and SSS3 Classes
Extension classes for the SS2 and SS3 students will continue after the mid-term break. In view of this, all SS2 and SS3 students are expected to resume for early morning classes in school at 7a.m. (from Monday to Friday). Afternoon classes shall commence at 3p.m. (on Mondays and Wednesdays). Parents/Guardians are to note that these classes are a part of regular classes. Students who fail to attend may be at a disadvantage, since topics treated in these classes will not be repeated, except during revision classes. Hence, parents/guardians should please support this arrangement and ensure their children/wards attend these classes.
Coming Late to School
Parents/guardians are to take note that the school frowns at late coming. Students who come late are at a disadvantage as they are punished, sent home or possibly delayed to miss the first four periods. Every student is expected to be in school latest 8a.m. and be part of the morning assembly. We, therefore, urge and appeal, once again, to parents/guardians of our day students to ensure that students get to school before 8a.m.
Student’s Dress Code
It is disheartening to note that few of our students come to school in uniforms and house wears they have outgrown. We have been sending such students home (day students) while boarders are not allowed in classes until parents/guardians make replacements. Girls’ gowns should not be tight-fitting and should cover their knees while boys’ shorts should be in the range of the knee cap. Senior boys are not permitted to come to school in jeans or tightly-sewn trousers otherwise known as ‘pencil’. The recommended colour of shoes is black; no other colour is allowed. The sole of shoes should be black as well. Only white and black pairs of socks are allowed. Ankle socks are not allowed. Shoes should be flat and not high-heeled. Boots are not allowed. Shoes and socks that do not conform to the school rules and regulations will be confiscated. Boys’ haircut should be very low and even and girls on afro must have their haircut even. Other styles of haircut apart from this are not allowed in school.
Parents/Guardians are hereby informed that the recommended school cardigans are available in the school at the rate of N2,800.00. Kindly note that only the recommended school cardigans will be permitted in the school and any cardigan at variance with the recommended type will be seized.
Electronic Gadgets in School
In spite of repeated warnings to our students to desist from bringing electronic gadgets such as phones, tablets, laptop computers and so on to school, a handful of the students still bring them. This is a reminder to parents that the school will not return any seized gadget. The seized items will be donated during Charity Programme to the less privileged.

i. To mark the 30th year of life after secondary school, the ’89 set of this great school donated a block of classrooms to the school.
