History[edit]

The leadership of Bereton Montessori Nursery and Primary School, in conjunction with the school's 25th anniversary in 2003, elected to open a secondary school. This would allow students to continue their education at the secondary level. Groundbreaking of the school was held in 2004; construction included modern classrooms, science labs, computer labs with internet access, sport fields, a library, and student and staff housing. The school opened to students on 30 September 2006.[1]

The school is named in memory of Charles Dale for his contributions to education in Nigeria. The school's founder, Chief Victoria O. R. Diete-Spiff, is Dale's daughter.[1]

The 2006–07 academic year began with 32 students and 14 faculty; enrollment increased to 38 students by April 2007. Enrollment jumped to 149 students in September 2007 and 237 as of January 2009.[1]
