We believe it was a challenge for us to prove to the world that, indeed, our excellent performance in WASSCE over the years have been purely on merit of investment into quality tuition, ICT and Science Laboratory and human resources, i.e. qualified teachers who are committed to go the extra mile to meet the needs and understanding of our student.
