Ranking: The best SHS schools from Ghana’s 10 regions

A research company, AB Review, has come out with a list of the best Senior High Schools in each of the ten regions in Ghana.
The rankings were done based on statistics of the schools’ performances in the last five years, that is from 2011 to 2016.

Key among the indicators used by AB Review were the number of students with pass marks from A1 to C6, as well as the best average percentile of students compared to the number registered for the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the last five years.

Below are the best schools in each of the 10 regions in Ghana.


1. Greater Accra – Presbyterian Boys Senior High School


The school comfortable edged all contenders in the capital after averaging an 82.22% pass rate, with St. Mary’s, Achimota Secondary School and Accra Academy all lagging behind.


2. Ashanti Region – Opoku Ware Senior High School


They emerged as the best school in the Ashanti Region after surprisingly beating off competition from neighbours Prempeh College. Opoku Ware averaged a 92.52% pass rate.


3. Eastern Region – St. Peter’s Senior High School


They made light work of Saint Roses Senior High, Pope John Senior High and Koforidua Secondary Technical to emerge as the best school in the Eastern Region with an average pass rate of 87.45%.


4. Volta Region – Bishop Herman Senior High School


The likes of Mawuli Senior High, Ola Girls and Keta Senior High were all left lagging, with Bishop Herman stealing a match to the crown with an average pass rate of 65.02.
