WestMills is an educational learning facility for secondary school children. It is located in Apapa, along Hinderer Road. WestMills is a private school with state of the art facilities and a conducive learning environment.
In WestMills, I have realized that some subjects are taught earlier than at other schools; physics, chemistry and biology are taught from year seven rather than ten. This is very useful because that means more knowledge would be gained, training each and every student for what lies ahead.
The school prepares students for several external exams including SAT, JAMB, WAEC, A levels, Checkpoint, IGCSE and so on.
Also the school prepares students for several external exams including SAT, JAMB, WAEC, A levels, Checkpoint, IGCSE and so on. The school follows the Cambridge syllabus which helps students develop important skills and so many students who have schooled and graduated from here have gone to greater places.
The teachers and staﬀ members in this school know how to do their jobs in such a way that there is no way an attentive student can come out unsuccessful. Some examples of our great and thriving teachers who work to make us better in caring ways includes; Mr. Jide, our humanities teacher, Mr. Tommy, Mr. Nnamdi and Mr. Kayode, our science teachers, and our lovely principal, Mrs. Mfombong Etim, who teaches most English classes, and many others.
This school helped Similoluwa Aluko, who was just an average student to become a star who is now studying at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore U.S.A. Even our current students who are yet to graduate are already achieving greatness, like Gbolahan Adetunji who has already gained admission into five different Universities namely: Manchester, Essex, Brighton, Hull and Leicester. Joshua Akuma has also been given admission to Rochester institute of Technology in Florida, U.S.A.
I think if a parent is looking for a school for his/her kids, they should look no further if they come across this school.
This school has gone a long way with its students and the teachers always push each student to be the best they can be. I think if a parent is looking for a school for his/her kids, they should look no further if they come across this school because no matter how hard it gets here, everyone is always by each other’s side.
