The above-mentioned school was established on Monday 28th January, 1991 as one of the schools under the New Educational Reforms. It is a community school located on the periphery of the Jukwa town enroute to Cape Coast.
The School started with twenty-five students and three tutors including the headmaster, Mr. F.K. Osei. Thus, the school had a staff strength of only three tutors.
The first headmaster was Mr. F.K. Osei of blessed memory and Messrs George Munifie and Ato Annan Mensah were the other two tutors.
The students’ population increased to fifty-eight after just a week of the school’s inspection.
On 28th April, 1993, the school which was originally located in town was relocated to its present location.
The school suffered a nember of set backs for about five years, which affected the population and general development of the school. Around 1999 it started picking up the pieces together.
The population started growing; the District Assembly also assisted with some structure, a new and vibrant P.T.A. Executives and members of Board of Governors were put in place. They all assisted to raise the image of the school.
Today Jukwa Senior High School has grown to a population of almost One Thousand Two Hundred Students.43 Teachers and 42 non – Teaching staff.
