THE FOUNDING VISION
Roemichs International School was founded in September 2006 by Chief Mrs. Jumoke Harb, a passionate lover of children and education. Commited to selfless services and education of the young ones, she found her dream in Roemichs as a platform for actualising her education and training passions for the young ones.
On the 5th October 2006, with 27 children, Mrs. OJumoke Harb found a vision fulfilled when Roemichs was formally established. Today it is one of the fastest growing schools in Nigeria and has become widely known for the slogan represented in the school’s motto: ‘excellence in all things’.
Roemichs International School is a family, which welcomes children of all nationalities to an educational community where the future of the child is the first priority. This is consistent with the vision, commitment and principles of the founder.
Roemichs International School is an International School where unity, respect, cultural diversity and understanding are promoted and excellence in learning is achieved. Success is targeted and celebrated. All members of the school community are trusted and valued as partners who can contribute a significant role to our students’ learning. We strive to create a safe and happy, productive learning environment where everyone is equally welcome. We aim to inspire, challenge and cater for all needs so that our students can achieve of their best and fulfill their potential. The school acknowledges that we are all life-long learners and therefore optimises opportunities where students can access new and changing information and technologies, enjoy learning and gain skills of personal responsibility, to become reflective, creative thinkers, leaders and team members of a global community.
Roemichs International School is committed in policy and practice to the delivery of the National Curriculum of England and Wales whilst fulfilling the requirements set out by the National Policy of Education in Nigeria and meeting the syllabi of West African examinations. It also fulfills the requirements of Cambridge International Examinations and as such will offer IGCSE and “A” level examinations. It is recognised that for a school such as ours the National Curriculum does not represent the whole of the curriculum, and that our setting within the community of Nigeria and beyond allows for an enriched curriculum. We aim to develop students’ knowledge, skills and talents by supporting them to become curious, enquiring, reflective, problem-solving and independent learners. Roemichs International School adds an international dimension to the pupils’ learning and experiences which will increase opportunities for them in later life. Roemichs’ students, therefore, experience a balance and range of subjects which prepares them for higher education, lifelong learning and successful employment.
Located in the heart of Kwara State- the state of harmony is Roemichs International Schools, Ilorin. The serene and peaceful environment of Roemichs offers students the best learning atmosphere while remaining easily accessible for both day and boarding students alike. Our state of the art facilities, equipped laboratories, standard sporting facilities enable our students to learn and develop academic standard, sporting and extra-curricular abilities. Most of our students achieve ‘A’ grades in their external examinations. At Roemichs, we strive at achieving excellence in all things.
