King’s High School (KHS) effectively took off with 7 students and 7 members of staff (teaching and non-teaching) on January 1991 with Mr. A.K.O. Ademoyewa as the pioneer principal. Under his administration, the school received approval from Lagos state government to operate as a school.

During his tenure that spanned a total of 14 years, the school became consolidated to open a new chapter in the annals of its history. He fanned the vision of the school into a mission with a long list of achievements and laurels through outstanding performances of students. Specifically, the students’ performances in external examinations were excellent. During his tenure, the school won The OMO N’OBA Erediauwa Coronation Trophy twice for producing the best male candidates in WAEC SSCE in Nigeria in 2004 and 2008. Also, the school produced the student, (Onwunali Augustine) who came 2nd in WAEC SSCE in Nigeria and 2nd Best student in West Africa and received WAEC Excellence Award in Accra, Ghana in the same examination.
