On Saturday, October 22, 2022, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic, officially opened the Abomosu Model Senior High School, one of the nine (9) new model schools that the government is building.
The Abomoso Model Senior High School has all the necessary facilities, including athletic grounds, office buildings, twelve (12) labs, libraries, and dorms.
Additionally, the school’s V-Block contains 24 classrooms overall, compared to the 12 classrooms in the E-Blocks built by the previous administration.
In order to create these nine (9) new senior high schools, seven (7) new senior high schools will be built, and two (2) existing schools will be transformed into model schools, totaling nine (9) schools.
At Kwadaso, Dabaa, Awaso, Abomosu, Akrodie, Weija, and Kpasenkpe are the seven new schools.
The first-ever Creative Arts School, Kwadaso, in Kumasi, and a Senior High Technical School in Dabaa, named after former President J. A. Kufour, make up the remaining two schools out of the proposed nine (9) schools.
Recall that these schools’ building contracts were awarded in October 2019 and that the consultants turned over the sites to the contractors a month later.
