About Our School
Diamonds International School, Dolphin Estate Ikoyi is an offshoot of Titilayo Nursery and Primary School T.B.S Complex, Lagos Island. Which was run by Mrs. F.O Adegbenro (Proprietress). The drive for excellence, the zeal and determination to move to the top and be counted among the best and world class schools in Lagos motivated the change of name. Come to think of it “of all precious stones, The Diamonds radiates the most brilliant glow” and since we want to live the “The Diamond dream”, we decided to identify with it. The name changed to Diamonds Private School and we moved to our present location (87, Lafiaji Way Dolphin Estate Ikoyi) in the year 2000 with a total population of 112 children and 14 staff started the new site. October, 2016 which was the 15th Anniversary of the School we attained an International status thereby changing our name to Diamonds International School. At present, the school population stands at 160 pupils, with 21 Teaching Staff and 17 non –teaching staff. The School’s Governess is Mrs. Bisi Akin-Arogunmati. While the Head Teacher is Mr. Elvis Doudu. The children of the school had been able to get admissions into various prominent Schools such as Faith Academy, British International School, Dowen College, Loyola Jesuit just to mention a few. For future projection, the school had acquired a ten acre of land at Eleko Village, in the Ibeju-Lekki Local Government area of the state for the Secondary School.
