Scholarship Entrance Examination 2019
2019 Date To Be Announced
Our future leaders deserve a well-rounded education. We provide a stimulating and enjoyable learning environment that is required to prepare students to be global citizens.
Here is what students will benefit
Every school should emphasize child-centered learning because every child has different personality and learning style.
Every student can learn, probably not in the same way or on the same day. Child- centered learning will help discover your child’s unique learning method and career path.
A school should not only take pride in the qualifications of her teachers. Teachers who inspire their students provide better value and students who love their teachers always succeed because they inspire them to be confident and self-motivated.
Great teachers give extra attention to students lagging behind, they are approachable and friendly, they believe that all students are brilliant. They are constantly receiving world-class training of the latest best practices in Education.
In a thinking school, students develop their meta-cognition to the highest level and are encouraged to think outside the box and try to overcome problems themselves before asking for help.
Greensprings School represents Thinking School Nigeria and is affiliated to Thinking School International.
A child that has a well-rounded education is equipped with relevant skills to be able to manage complex situations.
There are five key components of a well-rounded education including academic excellence, Intellectual, cognitive & presentation skills, music & performing arts, sports & recreation and social skills & community service. A well-rounded child will always have an edge to succeed in this ever changing world.
Well-rounded education ultimately results in high academic achievements
Academic excellence begins with the right foundation

I learnt the value of hard work in Greensprings. I usually stay up late till 2am to study. This way, It wasn't difficult for me to study in medical school. Greensprings taught me confidence. Greensprings taught me boldness.

The teachers to me made the experience. They were very competent. One thing about Greensprings is that they've always invested consistently in the development of their teachers. For us, these were the people who actually made the experience.
