Shocking: Top Schools In This Year’s WASSCE

Top Schools In This Year's WASSCE

Education indeed is the most powerful tool on this earth. If you have knowledge about something that others do not have, you possess the upper-hand over them.

In Hosea 4:6 the Lord stated;

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…….”

As many students prepared and sat for this year’s West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) across the West African State and the ten regions of Ghana, results indicates that Achimota Senior High School emerged the overall best school with good grades turn out.

Achimota School, formerly Prince of Wales College and School, Achimota, now nicknamed ‘Motown’, is a co-educational-boarding school located at Achimota in Accra, Greater Accra, Ghana. The school was founded in 1924 by Sir Frederick Gordon Guggisberg, Dr. James Emman Kwegyir Aggrey and Rev. Alexander (Alec) Garden Fraser. It was formally opened in 1927 by Sir Frederick, then Governor of the British Gold Coast colony.

The school has educated many African leaders, including Kwame Nkrumah, Edward Akufo-Addo, Jerry John Rawlings, and John Evans Atta Mills all of whom are former Heads of State of Ghana. The current President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, is also an alumnus of Achimota School. Former Prime Minister of Ghana Dr. Kofi Abrefa Busia taught at Achimota. Also included in its list of African heads of state are Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe and Sir Dawda Jawara, first head of state of The Gambia. An alumnus/alumna of Achimota is known as an “Akora”.

The motto of the school is Ut Omnes Unum Sint meaning “That all may be one”, a reference to the founders’ expressed philosophy that starting in the context of school life, black and white, male and female, everyone should integrate and combine synergistically for the good of all. The stylized piano-key design of the Achimota School crest was described by Aggrey at the time: “You can play a tune of sorts on the black keys only; and you can play a tune of sorts on the white keys only; but for perfect harmony, you must use both the black and the white keys”

The school is headed Mrs. Beatrice Tsotsoo Adom.
