THE JOURNEY SO FAR
The challenges of present knowledge exposure have caused those people who are conscious of the importance of qualitative education to proffer solution to the current predicament that befalls our society. The fallen standard of education, moral decadence, examination malpractice, corruption in high places, lack of fear of God, have culminated into social malaise that have put a big question mark on what the future holds for our children.
The solid foundation laid by notable Christian Mission Schools of the 19th and 20th centuries had been abruptly dismantled by the government’s take-over of such schools in the early 1970s. Happily, a few state’s administrations have begun to release the schools back to the Missions having realized the negative effect of their unwise decision. However, up till today, the scars of that reckless decision are still conspicously visible in our education system. Various vices and negative attitude, which are the products of inadequate child upbringing, are multiplying day by day.
Against this back-drop and in order to promote qualitative education towards the development of the total child
academically, morally and spiritually, the vision of Lighthouse International Schools, ikorodu was concieved.
LIS was founded in October, 1997 through the vision of the General Overseer Emeritus, Rev. Dr. G. Olu Farombi, ably supported by the entire members of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria.
At LIS Ikorodu, we aim at catching the child young for proper academic, moral and spiritual training. This is achieved through the application of all the various pedagogical techniques, which are based on child development, and learning theories.
We believe that “the child is father of man”. So we provide the enabling environment for the child to discover and attain his/her full potentials.
To this end, LIS has established a Junior Academy which comprises Creche, Preparatory, Nusery and Basic School.
To the glory of God, we are proud to state that we have a history of consistent academic excellence over the years. Dare to send your children to our schools. We shall by the grace of God train them to be the best you will ever desire.
