4. BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
Taviefe Senior High School is a co-educational institution situated about five kilometers from Ho, on the Ho-Kpedze road.
The founding of the school was the result of the vision of a few dedicated citizens of Taviefe who, in the late 1980s, saw the need to provide facilities for secondary education at home for their children and those from the surrounding areas who found it difficult to access the limited facilities that existed in the very competitive schools in Ho town, and in other second cycle institutions in the region.
In 1987, the school was started as a community day secondary school offering courses in the Arts and Vocational, courses and later on got absorbed into the public systems in 1990s. The school officially known as Taviefe Senior High School is now running four (4) programmes: Visual Arts, General Arts, Home Economics and Business.
The school is basically a DAY SCHOOL but has a well furnished hostel facility for girls and a rented apartment for boys.
