Re: Best Schools in Accra

Would also like some info about schools.
Why these five? I have not heard much about British International School, what makes it a good school?

Re: Best Schools in Accra

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.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

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.

Also, Tema Int is a very good school.  Roman Ridge is not so good anymore and between this and Ghana Int, I would go for Ghana Int. More established, focused and prestigious. Good luck.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

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.

In Galaxy International School your child will pick up a very localised English Accent which is far n not legible to the European way of speaking English

It doesn't just depend on your expectations, but also on your budget and your location. If you look on accraexpat.com you will see a comprehensive list of the schools and their location.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

Then if you want an English curriculum you will need to look at Ghana International School or there is the British International School in East Legon. Both are accessible from Airport Residential.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

What do you think about GIS et BIS ? Coming from the english course, will it be tough for them to join the American system ? We are French. Thanks.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

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.

Re: Best Schools in Accra

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 !
