About Nigerian Military School (NMS)

The Nigerian Military School Zaria, founded as the Boys-Company of Nigeria in 1954, was established under the auspices of the Nigerian Regiment Training center of the Royal West African Frontier Force

NMS now runs six years training programme broken into Junior and Senior Secondary classes of three years duration each. All the subjects required by this policy are being taught at the School by able and qualified officers, senior non-commissioned officers, Ministry of Defence staff, temporary staff, and youth corps members.

The School also conducts a leadership training programme to inculcate confidence and the desired leadership traits into the Boys. To enhance its status, a Governing Board headed by the Chief of Administration (Army), was constituted to oversee the running of the School.

THE SCHOOL from its establishment to date has produced numerous senior military officers and senior staff in both government and private sectors. Its contributions to economic and socio-political development in Nigeria are in no way measurable.
