I think that Ghana Int'l & Lincoln are the best two by far.
Then there is Roman Ridge School, Galaxy and SOS, which are also supposed to be good.
One of my concerns when choosing a school was that I absolutely did not want anything to do with religion...for personal reasons and British, American Int'l Schools and Roman Ridge all had some kind of daily morning devotions.
We are handing in applications to Galaxy. We spoke to a man here in Sweden who´s son went to their Sec school. He said that they are making an extra effort since they are quite new on the market. When he got back to Sweden he was far ahead of his class mates.
I was in contact with the American Intl School. We were willing to negotiate their religious connection since it seemed to be quite moderate. One day we drove by and saw some VERY religious wall paintings and we decided to go for Galaxy which is a secular school.
I think it is important that the school has a certified international programme so that the standard can be guaranteed and that the students can be admitted to universities outside Ghana.
All the usual schools mentioned are good academically although I have a problem with discipline at Ghana Int. My kids went to East Airport Int when I was in Ghana a few years ago and I found them quite good.
Hello, im a student at Ghana int school, and its a really good school it is internationally recognized, and the Education is very good. If you dont want your child to come there i will suggest either Lincoln Community School or Ecole Francais (french speaking school) Merci J'espère j'aidé
If you want a French school there is one in East Legon which is accessible from Airport Residential. I have no personal experience of either of the schools so hopefully someone who has children there might give you their opinions.
the top 3 are certainly Lincon -LCS, Roman Ridge and GIS (Ghana Intl). there are other schools also - like DPS (Delhi Public), but the men in that school working are often so frustrated, (maybe because of low pay), that they very often keep dishing out expletives to take out their frustration !
Hello, I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the expat community. my husband and I and the kids have recently (July 2013) relocated to Accra-Ghana from Houston, TX. We started an early childhood development center off Spintex Road, Harvest Christian Academy, - hcagh.com. We are very interested in connecting with the expat community and also to present an option in American Schools along the Spintex Road corridor.

I think you should choose east airport international it is one of the best schools in Accra. Followed by vine Christian but not gis and bis because the children from that school are rude and snobbish and in galaxy there have been some drugs going on.
hi,we r soon shifting to accra,pl suggest which is best area to stay for expats from facility & safety point.How is Lincoln community school for grd 11 (IB DIPLOMA)? Do we get house girls & drivers easily & trustworthy? Thanx.
If you are considering Lincoln school there are some very good expat areas around it or you can also live in most other expat areas although the traffic can sometimes be heavy. I suggest you look on accraexpat.com as that will give you information about areas to live and it also has a real estate section which will give you some idea about available accommodation. With regard to staff you should look for people recommended by other expats. There is a section on accraexpat for staff or there are a couple of groups on facebook for expats in Accra where you will also get help.
