T. I. Ahmadiyya Secondary School has grown from small beginnings to become one of the most respected Senior High Schools not only in Kumasi but in the Ashanti Region and indeed Ghana.

The Schools has contributed greatly to the intellectual, moral and spiritual development of both Ghanaians and non Ghanaians and is today justifiably proud to be the alma Mater of hundreds of alumni who are making significant contributions to the development of Ghana.

T. I. Ahmadiyya Senior High School, Kumasi was established by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Ghana on 30th January, 1950. The first Headmaster of the School was Dr. S. B. Ahmad, an expatriate, who started the  school with twenty-five students and seven teachers.

Initially, the School made use of two classrooms belonging to the Ahmadiyya Primary School at Asafo in Kumasi.

In 1953, the School was moved to its present location by the Ahmadiyya Mission.

The land for the present site was donated by Otumfuo Sir Osei Agyemang Prempeh II, the then Asantehene.

The Asantehene also graciously and generously donated an amount of one hundred British pounds towards the construction of the first building.  This is a clear indication that our honourable chiefs, since time past, have assisted greatly in the development and spread of education.

In 1956, the School which was run as a private institution by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission was absorbed into the public educational system and hence became a Govenment assisted school.
