The paper examines the relevance of physical facilities in enhancing the level of motivation and the academic performance of senior secondary school students in South West Nigeria. The study adopted ex-post facto design. The population consists of all senior secondary students in South West Nigeria. The sample for the study include one thousand and fifty senior secondary school students from three states out of the six states in the South West Geo-political zone. The researcher made use of a questionnaire and an inventory to collect data. A self-designed questionnaire tagged "Motivation and Academic Performance of Senior Secondary School Students" (MAPSSS) was used to elicit information from the respondent. The result showed that there was a significant relationship between physical facilities and students level of motivation and academic performance. Based on the findings of the study, more physical, human and material resources that are of high quality should be made available in public school to motivate students towards learning. More priority should be given to allocation of funds to make the public school conducive for teaching and learning to take place; this will improve the academic standard of public schools.
