Most expats will opt to send their children to international private schools in Lagos, of which there are a number to choose from. As a major city in Nigeria, schools in Lagos offer myriad curricula and languages for expats children to gain a well-rounded education, including English, American, French, Dutch and international programmes of study.

The standard of education in these schools is high, but so are the tuition fees. Expat parents working in Nigeria should try to negotiate an allowance for this as part of their employment package.

Below is a list of some of the most popular international schools in Lagos.
