AB REVIEW SAYS The second largest school in the Northern Region only after Tamasco, Ghana senior high is by all standards a top school. With a population of 1800, the co-educational institution has shown impressive academic and sports achievements. A consistent strong prowess in sports from the school has won it the name Sports College. The school has basic facilities including dining hall (old and new), science lab, administration block, etc. The school also has a mosque since most of the students are Muslims. The school’s alumni are relatively strong but can do more to upgrade the school’s facilities to modern ones. STUDENTS SAY “…” Modernization of school’s facilities is imperative.
