Ebenezer Senior High School, originally as a first cycle school (Primary and Middle) was founded in April 1941 by the late Mr. Robert T. Aryee at Korle Gonno in Accra. In 1945, the upper class of the school was transformed into a secondary school. In 1956, the school was absorbed into the public system and relocated to Mamprobi, a suburb of Accra. Initial student enrolment was six pupils and one teacher.
A site for the present location of the school was acquired in Dansoman Last Stop. Movement to the new site commenced in 1984 and by 1989 all departments of the school had moved to the present location.
Presently, the school runs four Academic Programmes, which are General-General Arts and General Science, Business, Agricultural and the Vocational-Visual Art and Home Economics. Enrolment level now stands at 1,178 with a Teaching staff strength of fifty (50) and a non-teaching staff of thirty two (32). Mrs. Elizabeth A Adoo is the current Headmistress of the school.
