AB REVIEW SAYS Arguably Accra’s best all day school; Accra Senior High School has a long rich history. The school over the years has posted creditable results in academics and in extracurricular activities too. The School, which was established in 1923, the first Secondary School in the then Eastern Province of the Gold Coast started as a private school and a boarding school was later converted into a public and day school. Survey shows that the school’s strongest weakness is its poor presence on the internet. Creating a website and profiling the school’s image on search engines can help bolster the school’s ratings. The school has up to standard facilities including science lab, library, technical divisions, etc. As a day school, one would expect that the social environment on campus is not as impressive as boarding schools. However, that is not the case at Accra High. Clubs and societies are generally active and students usually participate in extracurricular activities. Not much is heard of the school’s old student association. STUDENTS SAY “…” Teachers are commended for the strong dedication to work. In addition, students applaud the good job being done by the school counselors, one of few schools to highlight that area. Students say they are motivated by teachers to bring out their best. This allows for a good student-teacher relationship. Students’ participation in clubs and societies is impressive. Accra high students are excited about their school and do encourage others to be part of this great institution.
