The school started at 24 Saka Agbaje Street New Bodija Ibadan on September 15, 1978. It was called Saka Agbaje Preparatory Class. The aim was to prepare primary school pupils, through after-school lessons, for common entrance examinations into prime State, Federal and private secondary schools. The foundation class was made up of five primary six pupils from different schools in Ibadan.
Within six months, parents were so impressed with the unbelievable improvement observed in their wards that they requested for the broadening of the scope of the lesson to include other primary school classes.
To prepare all those put under our care for a mentally and spiritually fuifilling journey in life.
To help all our students develop their God-given potentials to the maximum.
We aim at inculcating the love of God and respect for fellow human beings as soon as the pupils
are put in our charge.
Very early in life, I decided to be a teacher. I believe God granted the desire. I pursued the desire with all my heart.
Teaching is like fishing. The sea is blessed with countless number of fish. What the fisherman does is find out a way to bring out the fish from the sea. If all he does is throw millions of hooks into the sea, he will catch nothing. But if he baits his hooks with fat earthworms, he will reap a good harvest. God has given each child a talent. No child is hopeless.
My niece, a very playful child, needed a good school and boarding to enable her focus on her studies even while in the primary school. Do you have such a child? To do this, my sister and I needed a school that would be like home away from home. We began the search on the internet, talked to numerous parents to be sure we got what we wanted. When a family friend mentioned Sonbeam Preparatory School Bodija, Ibadan, we went there, fell in love with the school and our girl commenced school. The school listens, cares and do not joke with teaching. Discipline is key and they support rounded growth of children.
