@Poster,
Forget about schools and which is the best.
We have forgotten that the proper upbringing of a child starts frm home and ends at home.
The school,yes,it can add value.But putting a child in the best of schools and paying huge fees amounts to nothing when the child knows you place more importance on things other than his/her education.
Like u rightly stated,the Fed Govt Colleges and International Schools were highly rated and respected.Infact I found it hard to forgive my dad when after doing brilliantly well in JS external exams(from a community sec sch)he was unable to change my school to univ of nig.sec sch where he was working.
However,by training,after my SSCE I joined my friend in setting up extra-mural classes where I was teaching students of those 'classy' schools and they were amazed at my abilities.
In my 1st year,guys from such schools had an advantage only in our 1st semester,but all man found their levels by second semester.By training also I graduated top of the class.
God will not allow my kids attend public schools,as it is worse off now.However,my wife and I have already told ourselves that we have a major part to play in our children's academic success and God is helping us as they are doing very well.
That is my candid contribution.

Re: Rating Of Secondary Schools In Nigeria by Evagreenfields(f): 8:44pm On Jan 10, 2011
Are u guys rating these schoolz in terms of monetary value?i tink the word 'best' is relative and not absolute.some schools pay close to nothing as fees and their products still wow people.i tink best boils down to individuals and upbringing and genes of course.i remember when i was in sec sch, schools like dowen,bis, atlantic hall, green springs (private schoolz) never came close to mine in competitions n hey, there can neva be a true yardstick for rating schools in nig.
Re: Rating Of Secondary Schools In Nigeria by ighoeve: 8:59pm On Jan 10, 2011
Although I agree that, on the average, private high school students have a huge edge over students that attended/are attending public  high schools, especially in spoken english language, I do not think one has to go to any of these very costly private high schools for one to be a competitive student, I attended a public primary school, a public high school and a public university(UNILAG), But today, I am studying as a graduate student at one of the best universities in Europe on a full scholarship, I had also studied on  a full scholarship at the best university in Africa(ZA) before going to Europe, I believe only the determination of students yields success, nothing more, I am sure that there are a cornucopia of people with my kind of background who are doing excellently well.

My conclusion, therefore, is that private school or no private school, if a student will be good, he will be good, I can remember how my colleagues then in high school outperformed many of the kids from all these so called private and federal high schools in Bournvita Brain Match Competition, These are guys that only studied in public schools!

Because of facilities, student to teacher ratio, and close supervison of student and teacher performance, the private schools in Nigeria are better than the public ones (GENERALLY). This is evident when one looks at jsce and waec scores. Like some have already said, schools like Thomas Adewunmi college, Adesoye College, and St. Jude's in festac are some of the best. These schools are very expensive so you don't necessarily get the best value for your money.
The most affordable and quality education you can get in Nigeria is from the Unity schools (F.G.C.s). Not all fgcs are created equal; the principals make all the difference, so make sure you find out about the principal in charge. When I got into FGC Ilorin in 1997, this elite school was in a rot. the principal was tooooo nice or too weak and teachers were either not coming to class or were late in coming. so we jss 1 one students basically turned te class into a wrestling ring and usually terrorized the poor girls. But in 1998 we got a new principal (Alhaji Monite). that guy put the fear of God in both teachers and students. the result: standards became high again.

this thread is a waste of space. There's no central monitoring of schools so any rating is mischievious at best.
