About US

Deltona [Dedicated Education and Learning to Nations] is a community project of the International Research and Development Institute [IRDI]. The IRDI is an independent institution established in 1997 by a leading scholar Prof. Aniekan Offiong for the purpose of increasing the understanding of research and development problems confronting the developing world. An integral part of this task it to develop local capacity through formal Education. Deltona International Schools are centres established by the International Research and Development Institute in its effort to develop local capacity through formal education. As part of it community project the IRDI build the Place of Learning in Uyo and dedicated it for use in providing Nursery, Primary and Secondary Education to its Neighbourhood. The Place of Learning building project started in 2009 and was completed in 2014. In September 4, 2015, Prof and Mrs. Aniekan Offiong, President and Vice President of International Research and Development Institute started the Deltona International School in the IRDI Place of Learning with 30 teaching staff and 500 pupils of the Deltona International Nursery and Primary Schools. This number was a miracle as the IRDI and made provision for only 100 pioneer pupils. Thank God for providing the institute the additional resource needs to cope with the surge in that first year of operation. This was a clear indication that the community was willing to partner with institute in providing Dedicated Education and Learning to Nations [DELTONA].

The Deltona motto is

LEARNING AND LEADERSHIP

. This is a philosophy that our community ascribes to, and we believe that every child should become equipped with the ability to make their own mark on the world.

Through the encouragement of independent thought and fostering critical thinking, we aim to cultivate children who:

  • are open minded
  • have a broad global perspective
  • are emotionally intelligent
  • are confident, courteous, respectful and articulate
  • are intellectually capable
  • are culturally aware
  • are innovative
  • have a strong work ethic
