Crude oil is one of the main stay of Nigerian economy and majorly got from different parts of Rivers State. The study is to access the impact of oil company concentration on the management and transformation of post primary schools in Rivers State. The researcher used descriptive survey design to discuss the impact of oil company concentration on the management and transformation of post primary schools in Rivers state. The population of the respondents was 450 respondents comprising of all the Principals, and some teachers chosen from all the secondary schools in the Local Government of the study. Stratified random sampling techniques were used to choose 150 out of 450 respondents used for the study. Two research questions were raised for the study. Oil Companies and their Impact on the Management and Transformation of Post Primary Schools Questionnaire (OCIMTPPSQ) were used for data collection. The instrument was validated by two experts. One from Educational Management and the other from Measurement and Evaluation, Psychology and Guidance and Counselling Departments, Federal University Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State. The reliability index of 0.72 was realized after subjecting it to test-retest reliability method at 0.05 significance level. Spearman Ranking Order Statistics was used to analyze the work. It was discovered and concluded that the oil companies had very little positive impact compared to the enormity of oil exploitation in Rivers State. The study made some possible recommendations among others are the provision of sustainable infrastructures to the schools by the oil companies; scholarships should be awarded to the students at all levels; science laboratories should be built and equipped to encourage the science students and for employability.
