The Jephthah Schools Limited established Jephthah Comprehensive Secondary School on the 6th day of October, 1995. The school’s vision was born out of deep concern to contribute to the progress of secondary school education in Nigeria. It is common knowledge that the standard of education in Nigeria has fallen.
Mrs. Ifeoma Edith Chukwuogo whom God gave the privilege started JCSS. She appreciates the benefits of quality education, i.e. all round education of the highest quality standards. Using her God given resources, she moved on to fashion a Christian school that will train up students in wisdom, in knowledge, in status and in favour with God and man. The name Jephthah means “God Opens”
