The environment in which learning takes place is very important as it is capable of either enhancing or impeding the learning capacities of students. There appears to be a declining concern for the nature of the environment in which learning takes place in Nigeria. This apparent neglect could be as a result of the syndrome of ‘the end justifies the means’ which now makes many to be interested in the nature of result produced by each school in public examinations at the expense of the quality of the process that generates such results. Thus, this paper attempted an assessment of the learning environments of selected schools that took part in the recently concluded nationwide accreditation and re-accreditation of secondary schools in Nigeria. The exercise was carried out by collaboration between the National Examinations Council and Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. The learning environment here was considered in terms of the quantity and quality of schools’ physical facilities and the quality of the teachers. The implication of the findings was discussed.
