I am very glad that you are showing interest in Mercyland Int’l college, Oba Alake Road Ibara Abeokuta Ogun State, Nigeria. This website is designed to give you an insight into the vibrant educational community that is called Mercyland International School, Abeokuta.
Since the 1980’s, the concept of quality education has been a central focus of attention in Nigeria especially in the south-west zone. It is this purpose driven idea that lead to the establishment of Mercyland international Nursery/Primary school in 1994 by Chief A.G.O Bankole (A high Chief in Egbaland) and his amiable wife Dr (Mrs) A.A Bankole. The school which started with a humble beginning as a day care centre with only four children has enjoyed formidable growth. This is largely due to unsurpassed commitments of its founders to lofty goals and shimmering ideas of imparting sound academic and moral education into the Nigeria youths. Mercyland International College, Abeokuta is an offspring of Mercyland International Nursery/Primary School. The college though born in 2004 has established itself as an International College with comprehensive academic programmes, quality staff and excellent facilities.
At Mercyland International College, Abeokuta, we understand quite well the criteria for the development and growth of leadership which include national policies, strategy, people partnership, resources and processes. With this in mind, we have designed a co-educational approach to learning which places emphasis on effective teaching and learning process, identification and development of inherent skills and abilities, neat and serene academic environment, excellent facilities and high moral tone.
In the words of our Proprietress, Dr (Mrs) A.A Bankole, “Mercyland International Schools is about quality-quality academic performance, quality direct personal care for the learners, co-curricular achievement”. For quality to be achieved, many factors have to be considered and properly integrated into the general system of an organization some of these include principle, ethics, curriculum, facilities, environment, resources and goals.
