Education is a critical element of human development, and it is very essential to the growth and development of any country. Tertiary education is the backbone of any society and it is the quality of higher education that determines the quality of human resources for social, economic and political development of a country and one of the main drivers of the evolution of society. The study investigated into the relationship between quality life experience of teacher and the student’s excellent performance in the academic world. Descriptive survey design was used and the target population was the teachers in secondary school in Oyo State which were randomly selected for the conduct of the study. Stratified sampling technique was used to get information about participants. The sample size was 500 where the questionnaire was the instrument used in collecting data. Pearson Product Moment Correlation, ANOVA, mean percentage and standard deviation were used to analyze the data. The result of the findings showed that though the quality life experience of teachers was high in terms of their excellent performance in the academic world, this does not really reflect in the performance of the student.
