As Ghanaians, the tertiary institutions we attend do not hold much prestige as the senior high schools we attended . No-one cares if you went to Ghana University or Cape Coast University.
High school is all about getting you trained for the real world. High School offers you the chance to develop physically, emotionally and intellectually. Most of the country’s jobs allow applicants to have education beyond high school. So, mainly high school education is a big part of life and career.
Today, I have assembled a list of our favorite Ghanaian Celebs and the high schools that they attended.
