Reasons Why Attending Grait Schools Is Important.

In many places, people take school for granted so you might ask, why is Grait ranked amongst Nigeria’s best college. Going to school may be a source of annoyance or frustration. At some point in their lives, many kids wish they didn’t have to go at all. Dropping out and starting their “real lives” might be sound appealing. Why does school matter so much? There are ten reasons why:

Grait teaches social skills

For most kids, school is the first setting where they learn to socialize with peers. They learn to make friends, listen to teachers, and work through problems. Learning these social skills early in life gives children an important foundation for their interactions in society. Our teachers and other adults encourage healthy socialization also addressing issues like bullying.

Grait schools help young people build confidence

Being self-assured and confident in one’s abilities is crucial to healthy self-esteem. Children who don’t have much confidence are more likely to be taken advantage of and struggle with anxiety. In Nigeria’s best college, children get the opportunity to build their confidence early on. As they learn to read, write, solve general problems, and more, their confidence in their abilities increases. Our teachers play a very important role in this as it’s their job to celebrate a student’s progress as well as their successes, as many struggle with certain subjects.

At Grait we encourage critical thinking

Critical thinking is an essential part of any subject in school. Whether it’s literature, science, or history, students develop critical thinking techniques. They use these to absorb the material, form their own ideas, and express themselves in writing and speaking. These skills translate to every area of life, whether it’s in academia, the work setting, or relationships.

Furthermore we introduce young people to future goals

At Grait we introduce students to a wide variety of subjects. More often than not, a student connects with certain topics on a deep level. Whether it’s through a group project, they get opportunities to explore their interests further. Students consider what they want their career to be and develop goals for the future. With support from our teachers, any student can see what’s possible and work towards their passions.

We give our students a variety of opportunities

We offer more than just classrooms but also sports, clubs, and other extracurricular activities. Some of these can lead to scholarships, giving students access to great opportunities for their futures. Even if a student doesn’t thrive in a classroom setting, they can find something else at their school that benefits them.

Building communities is assured

Grait has gradually become an important source of community for many students. For some, it may be the one place where they feel like they can be themselves. School can also serve as a community for parents, so it benefits whole families. For students, feeling like they belong and are part of something bigger than themselves is very important. They’ll feel supported and encouraged, and even when they leave school, they’ll strive to find and build community wherever they go.

At Grait we teach the importance of the learning process

It’s not unusual for students to question the point of any given topic at school. While you might not use a specific math formula in your daily life, the process of learning is what matters. Memorizing formulas, analyzing a piece of literature, and engaging in civil discussions train the brain. In the future, when you need to learn something new, that training kicks in.

Education reduces poverty thus we strive to imbibe quality education

Education is an essential part of reducing poverty around the world. When children receive an education, they’re able to access jobs with higher incomes. That benefits their whole families and can end cycles of poverty that keep communities down. Grait’s corporate social responsibility has enabled us issue scholarships to several children over the past years. Other factors impact what kind of a job someone can get, but it’s generally true that as a person gets more schooling, their income potential increases.

At Grait international schools we promote and instill gender equality

In addition to reducing poverty, education combats gender inequality. In some parts of Nigeria, girls receive less education than boys. This affects the jobs they can get and makes them more vulnerable to violence and human trafficking. When they go to school, girls increase their income potential and safety. Research also shows that in Nigerian states like Ogun, that value education, maternal death rates reduce drastically.

Quality education by and large benefits Nigeria as a whole

Schools can benefit individuals and communities, so it makes sense that Nigeria will do better when good schools are present. Starting from a young age, citizens receive the education they need to get higher-paying jobs. They are more likely to invest their resources back into schools for the next generation. Agencies like the World Bank recognize the importance of education for a country’s economic development.
