The Akroso Senior High School is expected to admit a total of 832 students this year, under the double-track/semester system.
This will increase the admission to about 600, according to the Headmaster, Mr. Sampson Agyiri-Nyarko
The new system, which began on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, is expected to create space to accommodate more students due to an increase in enrollment.
It is also expected to reduce class size, increase contact hours, and the number of holidays.
The government adopted the double-track (semester/sandwich) system to cater for increased enrollment under its flagship programme, Free Senior High School, due to deficits in infrastructure.
The school, which was established on January 20, 1992, began as a day school with 122 students, and currently has about 1,624, and runs seven academic programmes with over 700 male and female boarding students.
The school has produced many prominent products with some are now holding responsible positions in the country, including the Asene-Manso-Akroso District Chief Executive, Mr. Alex Incoom, who is also the current President of the Old Students Association.
