School History

Chidubem International Secondary School’s history dates back to September 2012 when it started off as a preparatory school offering nursery and primary education to children. CISS is a private institution established by an entrepreneur and a Medical Practitioner, Dr. Ezeugwu Nicolas Ifeanyi. The vision to establish schools was God given to raise holistic children who are morally dependable and academically impeccable. The Preparatory section started in 2012 with nine (9) pupils and six (6) teachers with two security men, two (2) cleaners and an Account Clerk. Since then, the school has grown remarkably, and is today one of leading institution offering a first class education from the foundation stage to secondary levels. We believe that offering a progressive education gives parents and pupils’ stability and continuity, removing the in-convenience of having to change schools periodically.

Our Aim

Our aim is to lay the foundation of a life-long educational experience, which will give the individual confidence and respect that will overcome all distinctions of race, class, colour and creed. We also wish to develop in our students a consciousness of the needs of society and the desire to contribute positively through selfless service, putting the totality of God-given talents and acquired knowledge to the service of humanity.

Our Philosophy

The school is unprejudiced, non-denominational and non-discriminatory. The only criteria for admission are academic merit and the willingness to do one's best to achieve excellence. We believe that all children in schools are members of a privileged minority, regardless of social and economic standing, and we owe them a duty to provide the highest possible standard of education. The school's philosophy embraces internationalism in its widest sense. Education is a global phenomenon; as such, we seek excellence wherever it is to be found and use it to raise our standards.

Our Values

At Chidubem International Secondary Schools we endeavour to instill qualities of judgment, self-reliance, integrity and self discipline in our students. Our overall Code of Conduct is based on godliness and high standards of behaviour. Chidubem International Secondary School is a Christian School. And we do not have any formal links to any religious denomination, though the school has always acknowledged its Christian tradition. Children from all faiths are welcomed and supported. We believe in educating the whole person, so that every student leaves the school well-equipped to achieve individual goals and with a sense of commitment, social responsibility and enthusiasm. Our students are encouraged to think creatively and independently. The spirit of healthy competition and cooperation is encouraged through sports and other activities. In this way, they learn about leadership and teamwork - the glory of winning and the importance of losing gracefully, yet with a determination to strive to do better next time.
