This study attempted to answer the following research questions among others: Has gender any relation with students' late-coming to school? Has age any relation with students' late-coming to school? Do senior students come to school later than juniors? Four secondary schools were selected for the study. A sample of sixty students late comers were administered with the questionnaire within a period of two weeks. The instrument was partly adopted, while the other part was self constructed. The instrument was validated by an expert in educational administration and language. Data collected was analyzed using simple percentages and frequencies for easy interpretation and understanding. The results indicate that late coming to school is higher among female students, those within the ages of 16-20 are frequent late comers and senior among others. It was recommended that parents (especially mothers) should reduce engaging female students with home activities especially in the morning; school administrators and teachers should increase effort on counseling strategies to adolescent students due to their change in perception and school rules.
