With a twelve (12) year history steeped in tradition of excellence, Starling school has been educating and preparing young people for the rigors of secondary/high school as well as leading fulfilling and productive lives. At Starling school we are committed to continuing our legacy of success in forming our pupils into tomorrow's leaders.

Starling school started as a dream when the founder was an undergraduate at the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria.

Her passion to teach and mentor young people, especially children, propelled her to obtain a National Certificate of Education (NCE) in 1978 and a Bachelor of Science in Education(B.Sc.Ed) from the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria in 1983. Her desire to improve her leadership and management skills took her back to the prestigious Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Nigeria where she obtained a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in 1988.

In May 2004, Starling school, with the founding vision to create a world class environment where the potentials of each child is discovered and nurtured for global opportunities became a reality. This has led to our school being rated as one of the best grade (preparatory) schools in Nigeria. This, we have achieved by employing world class staff, curriculum and facilities to raise well rounded children who understand our core values which are Transformational, Word Class and Integrity.

We began with three pupils and four teaching staff with emphasis on producing global leaders. We have recorded many testimonies of success since inception. These include admission to Loyola Jesuit College – Abuja, Jesuit Memorial College – Port Harcourt and Louis Ville Girls' Secondary School – Ijebu Ode, Ogun State. Others are: Lagoon Secondary School, Atlantic Hall College, Whitesands School, Grange Secondary School, Day Waterman School (all in Lagos).

In the 2015 Louis Ville Girls' Secondary School common entrance examination, a Starling School pupil came second overall.
