The Association which came into existence in 1961 has been operating and judiciously managing a highly reputable Nursery / Primary School at its head quarters: 5, Ruxton Road , Ikoyi.
As a result of the general public's recognition of the immense and invaluable contribution of Home Science Association to qualitative education at the Nursery / Primary level, supported by the desire to cater for the post primary education for the pupils of the Home Science Association Primary School, the Association Secondary school was brought into being in January 1990 at the premises of the primary school at Ikoyi.

The permanent site, situated along Lagos / Abeokuta Expressway, about one kilometer off Ajegunle Bus Stop, is right at the boundary of Lagos and Ogun States, overlooking the imposing Gateway Hotel, Ota. The location is sufficiently distant from traffic noise and blatant atmosphere. Yet, the school is only three minutesâ€™ drive from Lagos / Abeokuta Expressway. The citadel of learning (HSASS) occupies a vast area of 11 acres. Yes.
What an extensive area!
