Welcome Address
by the Principal

We are faith inclined, an academia of moral builders and excellent academic achievers.  Ours is to mould lives in tandem with the Creator’s plan and purpose for every child under our tutelage.  We don’t just see a need; we leave no stone unturned as we are always determined to meet the needs of our students.  For us, every child is important.  Our ultimate goal is to raise upright leaders of the future through high quality and sound education. 

Deeper Life High School, Jalingo Campus, an offshoot of the main campus in Lagos, was established in September, 2019, to fill the longstanding vacuum of modern educational practice with zero tolerance for examination malpractice, which most lovers of 21st century education had long waited for in the state and its environ.  Our trademark of excellent service delivery speaks volume.  This is made possible by the super dedication of our unrelenting staff.

Powered by the urge to be ahead of the pack, the DLHS, Jalingo Campus, exposes every child to innovative learning based on the school’s age-long slogan “one laptop per child”.  Going beyond the conventional school curriculum, our students are acquainted with the demands of the tech age which are capable of shaping their future.  The technological aspect of our learning system arouses students’ interest in exploring and developing their talents towards creativity in such areas as computer programming, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), web designs, to mention a few, thereby giving them a sense of self-fulfilment.

Our learning activities are not limited to the classroom.  We are committed to building good leadership and entrepreneurial skills in our students through practical trainings that will help them acquire self-reliance and profitability in the nearest future.

A record breaker like a lily in the mire, the DLHS, Jalingo Campus, has won several academic awards of excellence at various competitions ranging from Olympiad Mathematics and Science competitions to spelling bee competitions organised on a yearly basis by the popular Nigeria Spelling Bee within and outside Taraba State.

Our cultural or denominational diversities are no barrier to the accomplishment of the school’s vision and mission statements.  Our cultural and career day outings are a plus to our wide acceptability within and beyond the confines of our existence.

Part of what gives vibes to our relevance and popularity in Taraba State and the neighbouring states is our numerous sporting activities.  Are you a lover of football, volleyball, athletics, scrabble, chess and every other kind of game?  Take a drive or catch a flight to Deeper Life High School, Jalingo Campus, for an exciting experience you would ever live to remember.

The satisfaction of our stakeholders (parents/guardians) is our utmost concern.  This informs our termly Visiting/Open Day where every parent/guardian is given the ample opportunity to interact with their wards and get to know how they fare in the school.  The parents-teachers’ association (PTA) is also a viable tool with which our stakeholders are involved in the all-time growth and progress of the school.

Our cutting edge classroom and hostel facilities are not just admirable, but cozy.  It will also shock you to know that it is a ‘crime’ to starve or go on a hunger strike in the DLHS, Jalingo Campus.  Our students are fed five times daily with delicious meals to keep them fit for learning throughout their stay on the campus.  Indeed, Deeper Life High School, Jalingo Campus, is a home away from home.

Wouldn’t you rather partner with us by enrolling your ward today?  Our entrance examination holds on the second Saturday of February every year, unless otherwise stated, and it is based on the curricula developed by the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) for Basic 4-6.  Candidates are tested on the English Language and Mathematics, and subsequently interviewed for possible admission into the  Campus.

Have fun as you swipe through the pages of our ultra modern website.  A trial will convince you.

Once again, welcome to Deeper Life High School, Jalingo Campus, the home of quality education.

Mr. David Richard

Principal, Jalingo Campus
