Military schools are not the same as regular schools, which are led and managed by a principal, instructor, or proprietor. They are run by military officials and personnel in this situation. Regular students are not uncommon at command/military secondary schools, which are established for students who desire to further their education and pursue a career in the Nigerian Armed Forces.

Students who do not want to join the Nigerian Armed Forces in the future might attend the command secondary school to acquire or complete their secondary school education.

Military/command schools, like federal and state government colleges, have good and quality teachers who will teach your child, instil discipline, and impart knowledge into him/her

Nigerian military schools are affiliated with the Nigerian Armed Forces, which include the Nigerian Navy, Army, and Air Force.

Furthermore, nearly all military secondary schools are housed in military or armed forces barracks, ensuring your child’s safety. Your youngster will be safe from external threats such as kidnappers.
