Ray Jacobs Pre-Primary (Montessori), Primary and Secondary School (Boarding) Mgbidi is a day and boarding private school. It was established to give a solid foundation, qualitative and functional education with inestimable passion for excellence.
The primary school was established by its proprietors in 1995 and expanded to include the Secondary arm in 2012. The pressure of the unimpressive level of education in their community moved them to establish the model primary school in the first instance. This reaction was informed by their knowledge that the provision of care and qualitative education during the early years in life lays the foundation for imbibing the right values, good character and social behaviour as children attain adulthood
The founders never relented in providing all the necessary facilities for boarding and comprehensive primary school. As a co-educational institution, the school is equipped with adequate human and material resources, with live-in teachers,
matron and governesses.
The school bestrides education terrain and satisfies the yearnings and aspirations of the young education seekers. It boasts of a conducive and stimulating environment backed with corps of competent and dedicated staff.
The school situates far from the maddening crowd with its associated noise at the centre of Mgbidi Township. It is in an area devoid of distractions along College Road on the West side of Mgbidi town. It stands on a higher plain that overlooks Obana River and shares common boundary with Mgbidi Boy’s Secondary School.
The cool breeze from the river moderates the scorching heat of the sun in the afternoons. This makes the environment serene and very conducive for academic work. The entire environment is stimulating and is known for its natural beauty, splendour, tranquility and exquisiteness.
