Abstract: This study sought to examine the relationship between school plant management and performance of science students in public secondary schools in Yauri local government, Kebbi state Nigeria. The co relational study involved 161 respondents from three public senior secondary schools in Yauri local government of kebbi state, Nigeria. Data were collected using self-administered questionnaires which validity and reliability was confirmed through Factor Analysis and Cronbach Alpha test and interview. Multiple regressions were used to test the hypotheses. The quantitative results revealed that Instructional Facilities management has a significant positive relation with academic performance of science students, that circulation space management has a significant relationship with academic performance of science student, and that management of recreational facilities has a significant relationship with academic performance of science students. And the qualitative results also indicate that staff among many schools opine that instructional facilities management, circulation space management, management of recreational facilities to a greater extent, impact on the academic performance of science students. Conclusively, since public schools harbour a large population of the Nigerian children, effort should be made to effectively manage school plant for effective teaching and learning. Some recommendations were proffered, which include updating of school plant whenever the population increases. Education managers should not rest on their oars and quality control should be advocated.
