MOTTO: “PE NOKORE NO” MEANING SEEK THE TRUTH
To be a top-notch institution that works to help kids grow up to be well-suited to Ghanaian society on all levels so they may make a significant contribution to the socioeconomic advancement of the nation
To prepare the child to meet the greatest academic requirements in order to advance farther up the educational ladder and find a lucrative job in the nation.
The first buildings of Osei Tutu II College, formerly Tetrem Secondary School, were made possible by the kind donation of an indigenous person in 1973. The school was established as a private agricultural institution with the exclusive goal of teaching the young unemployed residents of the area efficient agricultural techniques for self-employment and their own livelihoods.
The government of the time decided it was appropriate to integrate the only post-JSS institution in the area, through the Ghana Education Service, into the regular educational system.
The school has seen highs and lows, but its lowest point was when, between 1996 and 2000, the whole enrollment dropped to only 67 pupils. But starting in 2000, the school’s overall student population increased to more than 1000 thanks to the efforts of both its previous and current headmasters. And based on all the evidence, there would have been a lot more students overall if it weren’t for the school’s overly large buildings.
The college was renamed Osei Tutu II College in 2006, honouring Osei Tutu Ababio, the reigning Asantehene.
STATUS: The school offers day and boarding student accommodations. There are two campuses: a modern location with classes and a former location used as the boarding house and recreation area. But by the end of 2010, the entire school would relocate to the new location.
