”As a school , God has helped us to maintain that level of academic excellence. In 2015, we came third  in Lagos State and  in December  2016, WAEC  rated  us  the best in Lagos State and 28th in Nigeria. Since that year, we have been trying to sustain that record by paying attention to individual differences. The teachers go extra mile to ensure the syllabus is covered, revisions are done and also encourage the students”

On her part, Demilade’s mother,  Mrs. Adenike  Odukumaya said: ”I realised that Demilade has retentive  memory since he was in primary four and  he has been able to scale  hurdles in his education. During his common entrance examination, the bulk of the training came from me. When we realised  he’s very good at Mathematics, I went round to get a lot of past questions and  I gave  him  emphasizing a test that requires  2hrs 30 minutes he must complete in 1hr 45 minutes. That was how he was able to gather speed and with that he was  outstanding in his common entrance examination”. Meanwhile, Mr. Segun Odukumaya lauded  his wife’s role  in  Demilade’s achievement.  We credit  everything to God Almighty, my wife and  the steadfastness of our son himself.He loves soccer, plays soccer very hard and  studies so well.”
