Helping to gain better understanding of the world puts science in a better position to influence positively, conditions for life on planet. Therefore, having the necessary science background and knowledge goes a long way to affect people’s life positively. Hence, children are taught science early so as to develop the critical thinking skills necessary to sort through all the information that they will be bombarded with in their lives, and make intelligent decision about what to believe and how to value their world and environment. Basic science that is taught in schools has evolved as a process of gradual curriculum reform in science. This study carried out an assessment of the Stakeholders’ rating of Basic Science Programme Objectives. Participants were ministry officials (33), principals of schools (89), year tutor/heads of department (166) and classroom teachers (269) selected by stratified random sampling techniques from Southwestern-Nigeria. The instrument engaged was Science Programme Objectives Rating Scale with reliability coefficient (r = 0.72). Findings shows that Stakeholders rated the objectives to be very good ( = 3.76). However, the dynamic nature of Science necessitates continual assessment of the programme objectives from time to time.
