Brightest & Best Nursery and Primary School

School Type: Private

Year Elected: 2015

Brightest and Best's mission is to prepare children to excel and lead with Discipline, Virtue, Excellence and integrity. Brightest and Best believes the system of education in Nigeria can be improved through the communal involvement of the students, achieved through the school’s engagement initiative. Students participate in school-wide and classroom leadership roles, as well as through teaching leadership skills to their peers. The leadership team, made up of teachers and students, come together to explore their community and design different engagement initiatives. 

Changemaking Initiatives

  • In the school’s engagement summit, students are fully responsible for running the program, from the science exhibition to communication. 
  • The school uses a shared leadership model in which everyone is a role model and a mentor no matter his or her grade.
