Her family is VERY big into church, split between Prot/Catholics.
but probably the nicest kindest people I have ever met. They go WAY out of their way to help you out.
The education there is really amazing. Those kids are studying things in HS that I NEVER learned... and they are expected be in the 95%+ range...
Yes I am a very lucky man. I couldnt have found a nicer more caring person then my wife if i tried. And the fact that she turns heads is a plus :)

They figured out what most American parents figure out way too late - which is that those smiling, somewhat overweight, teachers are NOT ABOUT to educate their kids. I suspect what happened (or happens) is that the parents are highly educated back home. They get here, they get together and compare notes, and quickly realize what a dump our schools are - so they develop their own after-schooling, and basically take over the education of their kids.
So the kids still show up in school, usually public, and they look like real geniuses, and yes, they’re probably smarter than average - but they only look brilliant because their parents are on to the scam we call “education” and make damn sure their kids don’t get caught up in it.
That’s really funny, considering this is NIGERIA we’re talking about. Maybe it’s just for the fortunate few that GET to go to high school. Otherwise their country wouldn’t be a back-asswards turd-world hellhole.
