AB REVIEW SAYS A co-ed boarding high school with roots originally stemmed in the sciences but currently offering a wide range of courses, Ghana National College is located on a hill 5 miles east of the historic castle town of Cape-coast right off the Accra-Takoradi highway. Founded in 1948, by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah (even before he was president), Ghana national has remained a top tier mixed school offering good training for its students. The school competes on a high level with the very top schools in terms of academics and sports. Survey shows that clubs and societies are not as active. The old student association is fairly active and networked. The school has a highly maintaining and constantly updated website that gives the general public a feel of the school’s good showing in academics and sports. STUDENTS SAY “…” Teachers are generally committed to work. One student mentions however that there are too many old teachers who should give way for new teachers. Students reiterate that more encouragement is needed from the top to motivate them to participate in clubs, societies and extracurricular activities. More clubs should be encouraged to enliven the social atmosphere on campus. Students appreciate the good level of discipline and love Saturday entertainment. One entertainment fan, however noted that new entertainment equipment should be bought National, the school’s nickname is indeed a national school that embraces students from different backgrounds. It was founded on 20 July 1948, staffed by dismissed teachers from St Augustine’s College and Mfantsipim School. The college was founded by the first Ghanaian President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who used his own funds to sponsor for eight students who had been expelled by the British colonial administration from St Augustine’s College.The expulsion resulted from a protest march, held in solidarity with Nkrumah, who was then imprisoned. Ghana National College was established on Friday, 16 July 1948, in Cape Coast, during a period of agitation for self-governance in the then Gold Coast. Ironically it was named Ghana National College nine years before The Gold Coast achieved independence in 1957, and the country was named Ghana.
