4. SHORT HISTORY
Methodist Girls’ Senior High School was started in 1984 as a private institution. In January 1993 the school was absorbed by the government into the Public System. In 2003, the stakeholders saw the need to convert the school which was a mixed school to girls’ school to cater for girls in the Akuapem North District and beyond. In 2003 therefore, approval was given for school to be converted into a girls’ school. The last batch of boys numbering 24 left the school in September, 20042005. The first batch of only numbering 187 was enrolled in September, 2003.
The school is located at Mamfe Akuapem at the highest habitable point on the Akuapem Ridge to be precise.
The 40.2 acre land donated by the chiefs and people of Manfe is gradually being developed into the permanent site of the school.
Memfe is centrally placed thus giving the school a very good catchment area, which attracts qualified tutors and students as well.
Methodist Girls’ Senior High School, Mamfe therefore, is fast becoming one of the leading Girls’ Schools in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Efforts are being made o to improve academic standards so that the school can come at par with other girls’ schools in the country. The stakeholders are leaving no stone unturned in helping the school in her developmental efforts.
The current Headmistress is Ms Janet Frieda Bediako Asare. She is the second substantive Head since the establishment of the school.
