The Training College also existed for only 10 years. Thus on 3rd November, 1972, it became a mixed Secondary School with the name Juaben Secondary School. The Secondary School was opened with 87 students.

Mrs. Rose E. Coker doubled as the Principal and the first Headmistress. The population of the school as at the end of the 2009/2010 academic year stood at 1932. This was made up of 320 Day students and 1612 boarders. The ratio of boys to girls is 1066:866.
