        This project work is another contribution to the already existing and numerous done and those still under way into the study of the causes of low academic performance of secondary school students in this attempt of trying to discuss the relationship between teaching methods and the academic performance of secondary school students.

A teacher choice of teaching methods should not only be based on what fits/suits him or her but also putting into consideration the subject area, schools mission statement, class demography etc. academic performance on the other hand according to the Encyclopedia Britanica (2009) academic performance as an act or a process of display in the level of understanding a knowledge of what has been learnt as a student especially while studying in schools. Irrespective of the schools physical beauty or magnificence, it is of great benefit to know to know that the student’s academic performance depends also on the teaching methods adopted by the class teacher.

        The choice of teaching methods according to Wikipedia may also depend largely on the information that the teacher or instructor intends to pass across to the members/students in his/her class, the skill that is to be taught, and it may also be influenced by the attitude and level of enthusiasm of the class/students.
