Our History

Graceland International School is a co-educational institution. It is a truthful saying and worthy of all acceptance that a house is made of walls and beams but a home is built with love and dreams. The vision and dream to raise a generation of great achievers came true as the supremacy and pre-eminence of the Almighty God was recognised several years back. Hence, one cannot but praise the Almighty God for opening our eyes of understanding to the great commission of building a nation of leaders with the 'excellent spirit of God' through the potency of an indispensable tool called Pen. No doubt, the pen is mightier than the sword. The need to transcend high to another phase or level irrespective of the previous achievements is our priority for the present generation. Though victory is preceded by a season of preparation, it can no more appear spontaneously and erratically than can a flower or mountain. It must be achieved by an orderly succession of well-directed efforts and divine support. To scale to an elevated altitude, there is the need for a virtuous life that is regenerated and of an excellent and noble quality.

Graceland International School is established to provide sound and structured formal academic excellence to students across the globe. To the glory of God, I perceive that heaven's windows have been flung open upon Graceland's students to trigger off laurels-winning streak in American Mathematics Competition and Science Olympiads; extraordinary exploits in Schlumberger Secondary Schools Scinece Quiz Competition; Gold trophy-winning wonder-wand in NAFDAC Consumer Safety Quiz and International Cultural Exchange Essay Writing Competition; and a long string of manifestations in Toyota Dream Car, Rubik's Cube and Cowbell National Secondary Schools Mathematics Competition among others. The school is located at 25/27 Liberation Stadium Road, Elekahia, Port Harcourt. The institution, which currently runs both day and boarding systems officially took off in September 15, 2003. As the path of the just shines with progressive intensity to a perfect-day , so the divinely orchestrated success prowess of Graceland International School has dynamically continued to glitter year after year, dazzling the world around us.
