VISION

Our institution is deeply dedicated to the cultivation of young girls, with the aim of nurturing them into God-fearing women who will have a constructive impact on the socio-economic development of our nation.

MISSION

In order to guarantee that every female student receives a high standard of education, it is crucial to implement efficient and effective resource allocation. This approach will empower girls to gain the necessary skills to effectively manage their lives, time, talents, and careers, ultimately enabling them to contribute meaningfully to the nation.

BRIEF HISTORY

Adventist Girls Senior High School (ADGISS) was initially established as a co-educational institution under the name Adventist Secondary/Technical School (ASTECH).
The establishment of the institution may be attributed to notable entities and individuals, such as the Seventh Day Adventist Church – Ntonso, which had a significant role in its engineering. Noteworthy figures involved in this process include Elders such as John Oti, Adomako, Peter Boakye, and others. Mr. I. K Boateng, who served as the Metro Director of Education at the time, actively contributed to the direction of the initiative. Presently, the institution has evolved into a fully established senior high school exclusively for female students, well recognised by the acronym AHWEFO.
The transition from a mixed-gender educational system to a single-sex educational system is a significant occurrence in the school’s historical record. ADGISS has undergone a series of challenging obstacles that were evidently overcome in order to reach its current state. The primary challenge encountered by the educational institution pertained to the acquisition of land. In the year 2005, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II designated a parcel of land measuring 53.4 acres, which currently serves as the location for the school. This development provided a much-needed relief in concluding the prolonged legal dispute over land.
After receiving approval from the Ghana Education Service, the girls’ school was absorbed into the public mainstream in 2005. As a result, ADGISS has become and continues to be the sole female second cycle institution in the Kwabre District. Furthermore, it is the first of its kind among SDA institutions, not only in Ghana but also throughout the entire continent of Africa.
