About Taqwa Schools

Taqwa was founded in 1997 amidst the desire for an educational institution that is Islamic in its foundations/values. It is upon this background that Taqwa was created to finally build an institution that balances high academic pursuit with an even higher standard of spiritual attainment.

Taqwa is structured on that recognized reputation as one of the foremost educational institutions in Nigeria. Our impeccable focal points of affordability, academic excellence and willingness to innovate have seen us thrive for over two decades.

We are a modern forward thinking school that embraces all opportunities towards unrivaled teaching and learning. Islam remains our foundation and still shapes our guiding principles and values.

On this note, we welcome all learners from all backgrounds and inclination. Do visit our grounds and experience Taqwa for yourselves.

We are a co-educational Arabic, English and French speaking private institution consisting of daycare, nursery, primary and college.

Taqwa Private School is strategically situated in the peaceful town of Ifako, in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State. Locating our schools at Ifako has a dual advantage, distance from the hustle and bustle of Lagos and accessibility from any part of Lagos.

It is approximately one hour’s drive from Lagos Island, about forty-five minutes from Lagos mainland, and ten minutes from Ikeja and the Airport.

A fall-out of this strategic location of the schools is a pervading air of security.

At Taqwa Private Schools, we prepare our children/wards for the JSSCE (Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination), the NECO (National Examination Council) and the SSCE (Senior Secondary Certificate Examination) and other examinations that qualify our graduands for admission into local and foreign universities and other tertiary institutions.
