Welcome to Taico
For the past 23 years Thomas Adewumi International College, Oko (TAICO) has been at the forefront of education in Nigeria producing class after class of graduating students with excellent academic results as well as a fine tuned sense of their own moral identity.
Choosing a Secondary school for your children is one of the hardest and most important decisions that you will have to make as a parent on their behalf. I am confident that when you take a look at what we have to offer and meet some of the current body of students you will see why TAICO stands out amongst its competitors.
Learning by involvement
Now, more than ever, parents must choose from a staggering number of schools promising to satisfy the educational needs of their children. These institutions make a lot of claims but you may need to look beyond the fresh paint, technical equipment and vast array of awards to ask just how valid these claims are for in truth appearances can be very deceptive.
We believe that an education with us fully prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. For every one of our students the time spent here is productive, positive and most importantly enjoyable. At TAICO we offer high quality teaching, an enthusiastic learning environment, vigorous extra-curricular activities that enhance the learning experience and international quality pastoral care.
We believe that the pursuit of excellence should not be confined to the academic field alone. Self-expression and self-respect require self-discipline and a lively concern for others. We hope to encourage every child in his or her voyage of self-discovery to maximize their own special talents and abilities, to urge them to take pleasure in thinking, reading and learning. We offer a truly holistic education that develops the mind, the body and the soul of every one of our students.
I am very proud of our school and of the continuing achievements of our students that sets them above the majority of other school children. TAICO is clearly in a league of its own when it comes to education in Nigeria and deserves to be at the top of any parent’s list. The College maintains its reputation by ensuring the high standards of academic delivery, firm but fair discipline, excellent student-to-teacher ratios, and up-to-date International teaching strategies continue to develop as the education profession adapts and changes to the world around us.
I hope that you will enjoy reading through this prospectus and that it will encourage you to come and see us in person, you will be most welcome and I will be delighted to personally take you on a tour of the College.
